With home automation, most of this is already possible. In today’s post, we are going to continue where we left off last time and continue to go over the history of home automation.

90s Kids Will Remember

Beginning in the mid 90s, a technological shift started to happen. Where computers were somewhat common is households up to this point, the 90s made computers the hottest home appliance since the washing machine. Overnight, it seemed as if everyone had a computer and was going on and on about this “world wide web” that they were able to access. It was during this time period that home automation really started to take off. With the increase in processing power and the leap forward in memory storage, computers were able to handle more complex tasks. As computers became more widespread, they also decreased in price, meaning that more people could afford the systems required for home automation, further increasing the popularity of these systems. The 90s helped to lay the foundation for the smart home technology that we have access to today.

Home Automation Today

A quick trip to a home improvement store or a store specializing in electronics is enough to show the shift that has happened in relation to home automation. It seems that no matter where you look there are new devices being developed that connect your home to the internet and help to automate some of the daily processes associated with the home. In an interesting (but not surprising)  trend, it seems that a majority of home automation solutions are geared toward increasing the energy efficiency of the home and helping the homeowners save money on their electricity bill. Smart blinds, internets connected thermostats, and wifi controlled light bulbs, all work together to increase the efficiency and the convenience of the home and create a better experience for the homeowner.
