  • The Big Names in Home Automation


    In the last blog post we talked about home automation gadgets that aren't as well known. But today we're talking about home automation from household names. Right now, no one I know is turning their lights on and off from their smart phones, or getting alerts on their tablets when they left their TV on. But it's the big companies like Apple, Samsung, and Google that are going to pave the way. The smart home trend is going to explode in just a few years, according to SiliconAngle.

    Samsung's Smart Home line launches next April. What makes them so innovative is that they deal with pretty much all household items. That means instead of having different platforms for different gear, everything in your house can be connected together by buying only Samsung products.

    Because Apple doesn't provide us with many different types of gadgets, they are approaching home automation at a different angle. The goal of HomeKit is to make  many items in your home - such as Honeywell, Philips, or Haier - sync up with your iPhone or iPad. Unlike Samsung, you won't have a monopoly of technology in your home. Instead you have more variety, and more options.

    Google recently bought Nest, a smart home item we're really fond of. They'll be utilizing third party products as well, allowing everything from your car to your washing machine to connect, via the Nest.

    It's very likely that one of these systems will be in your house in the next six years. Which one will you choose? And remember, Reilly Painting & Contracting, your Home Mechanics are one call away from installing your smart home devices. We can help you with all of your home automation needs.
