It can be a little staggering to think of how quickly technology innovates and integrates itself into our homes. Even a decade ago, many of us did not use video streaming services, and if we did, we likely did so on our computers, not our televisions. Similarly, voice-activated smart home assistants, like those from Amazon and Google, have only been a fixture in our homes for the last few years. It is nearly impossible to think of what the next big thing can be in our homes, but we’ve got some ideas. Automation is one of the biggest trends in nearly every area you can imagine. It is fundamentally changing the economy, the workforce, and nearly every aspect of how we live our lives, so it is only logical to think that it would become a part of our homes too. It is likely that automation will fundamentally change every part of our homes eventually, but we know where it is likely to start.
