Connecting everything but the kitchen sink
Companies are cooking up all sorts of new ways connectivity can improve everyday life.
Today, people expect technology to work together. That includes electronics that connect to the internet, like smart TVs and connected speakers, and now almost every other system and device in your home.
With advanced wireless capabilities baked into today’s smart home products, you’ll never have to worry about whether you left the oven on. When you’re running low on groceries, your connected refrigerator can automatically update your shopping list. An unexpected cool front on the way? Bump up your living room temp and warm up the hot tub while you’re still at the office.
And you can keep your house safe and secure even when you’re away from home by linking locks and lights to your phone, monitoring your security system in real time and even checking for spikes in dangerous gases, like carbon monoxide.
For manufacturers, this new Internet of Things represents an opportunity to expand product offerings in a way that was never possible before, providing everyday households with an edge of convenience and security.
