The future is now, according to numerous home experts. Thanks to the rise of artificial-intelligence powered technology, homes are getting smarter and more efficient. Said homes will also minimize in size from what we know and inhabit today to make room for densely populated neighborhoods. Using devices that are already commercially available like Amazon Echo and Google Home, homeowners will have the ability to control their homes with voice commands and other intuitively engineered controls.
In terms of security, features such as motion sensors, facial recognition and cameras connected to smartphones will help make a home feel safer. Emerging technology also shows us that homes could be constructed in as few as three months — at a much cheaper cost.
Using 3D printing and factory-based construction, home builds will happen at a much faster rate. Of course, the younger generation of ‘digital natives’ is more likely to embrace the smart-home innovations, but their popularity is anticipated to spread quickly.
