The Connected Home

In a fully functional smart home, all equipment that uses or produces energy communicates with each other, its occupants, and the power grid. According to ACEEE, if every U.S. household adopted smart lighting, appliances, electronics, and heating and cooling equipment, the country’s total residential energy savings would be 17% —that’s 186,097,868 tons of carbon removed from the atmosphere each year. Smart homes also have the potential to monitor and support elderly, ill, and disabled occupants with voice-activated or remote-controlled assistance. While seamless integration of smart home devices and applications is still a few years down the road, compatibility is improving rapidly.
