Do you have many computers in your home? There are probably more than you would expect.
You might have some laptop or desktop computers, or even things like iPads and game consoles. But did you think about devices like smart speakers or televisions? You might even have lights that can be controlled from a phone, or devices that can be programmed to turn on and off like your heater.
Our homes become smarter as more devices are introduced to them. Many of these devices control our homes automatically and complete jobs for us whenever we program them to. From lights that turn off when no-one is in the room, to doors that can lock automatically, to systems that monitor your energy usage; IoT technology can not only make homes smarter, it can make them safer and more energy efficient.
In this video you’ll meet software developer Tim Anderson, Georgie Armstrong from Gretel Analytics and Tom Tasker from Unify SDA Housing.
You will hear about how they use IoT devices to make homes smarter and to let people to live more enabled lives.
