Connected homes, also known as smart homes, have become increasingly popular with the advancement of technology.
They are equipped with smart devices that can be connected to the internet and can communicate with each other to automate and optimize various functions.
These connected devices range from smart thermostats, lighting, household appliances, security systems, entertainment systems, and personal assistants like Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has made it possible for these connected devices to work seamlessly together. They collect and share data with each other to perform various tasks. The potential of IoT in connected homes is vast, with the ability to automate household chores, enhance energy efficiency, and improve security, making life more convenient and comfortable.
Connected homes have therefore the potential to revolutionize the way we live and interact with our homes, making them more efficient and intelligent. However, with the integration of connected devices comes the need for enhanced security to protect personal data and privacy.
It is important to understand the benefits and potential challenges of smart homes to ensure that connected devices are secure and reliable for everyday use.
