are slowly adopting wireless tech, installing automation devices like smart doorbells and facial recognition software – but there is still a lot to be done! Long-term, we’ll see homes adopting a suite of technologies geared towards teleconferencing and video meetings for remote workers, with emphasis on tablets and smartphones that offer wireless charging capabilities.
In order to keep their home safe and organized, more people can install smart devices. Demand for large-size units is likely to grow in terms of the number needed , particularly in developed locations in mid- and affluent segments. One may need to integrate a study into a standard two-bedroom house. Work from home is an increasingly popular choice for employees today. The future of home design will need to build structures that incorporate automation and high tech technology, with careful architecture playing a significant role in how we live day to day. Contactless payments systems such as Google Wallet and Apple Pay are essential amenities for consumers as we move forward into the 21st century.
Smart homes will be rapidly adopted. There will be more emphasis on glass to save energy and allow in natural light but with a filter that can alter an environment. People will want frameworks to help them on their journey, for example with food management or the ability to use solar panels, battery charging stations and water meters. This does not mean people won’t always have access to some of the technology they have now, it will just become more of a shared standard; ambient lighting, door locks or bells, smart speakers as we venture into a world where people make themselves available in every sense of the word!
As social distance norms evolve and become more reliant upon an individual's technological prowess, a virtual presence will be considered just as valuable in terms of establishing rapport as a physical one. Thus, to relieve the growing burden on humans stemming directly from an increasingly overwhelming flow of digital information, it will increasingly be accepted among society that our automated systems are able to operate lights, doors, audio and video equipment with no physical interaction from the user. A remote employee is otherwise unable to monitor and control equipment at their place of work for example unless they have access to their employer's security surveillance system - which includes cameras placed both inside and outside of the building. As such, monitoring parties are given the ability to view recordings taken from each camera at any time from a remote location thanks directly to the cameras network enabled functionality.
