Electrical Remodeling – The Latest Trends In Home Automation
The invention of the assembly line brought about an industrial revolution which shaped how products and goods were manufactured. Commercial automation has rapidly developed since then. Now, you see robots handling major portions of the assembly process.
The home automation industry is sure to follow a similar path of growth and development. Though ideas and inventions for home automation have been around for some time, the cost to make them was too high for the products to enter the consumer market. We have only just begun to see new technologies enter the market for home automation.
One of the first real examples of home automation products is the robotic vacuum cleaner. Dyson built a robot vacuum and demonstrated it in 2001, but it didn’t get released to the market because the price was too high. The Roomba® went on the market in 2002. Since then, there have been a number of smart home automation products released to the consumer market.
The revolution in smart home technologies is just beginning. With the invention of 3-D printing, it’s easy to dream of the day when we order up anything we want from our home “Replicator” -just like the one in the popular TV series Star Trek.
