Smart Home Automation Systems

Smart Home Automation Systems

I remember the old Sci-Fi cartoon movies and how they tried to predict what our everyday life would look like in the future, precisely in years between 2010 and 2020. Besides flying vehicles, hoverboards and biometric authentication some of these cartoons were amazingly right when it comes to the increase in terms of home automation and artificial intelligence. Home automation’s benefits are numerous, but one of the most important ones is no doubt how helpful it can be in facilitating everyday chores and other worrisome tasks around the house. So if you want to upgrade your life to the next version, maybe It’s a good idea to take a look into these technologically advanced devices to get started:

One Device for Total Control

It was obvious for many people after the first universal remote control has come out that it was just the beginning of a centralized control device. In present times, technological advancements are making universal remotes obsolete because another device, which has already conquered the hearts of most people, is the inevitable substitute and which is the smartphone. This is the case of many home automation systems such as Z-Wave controllers which comes with an app that you can install on your android or iPhone in order to monitor and control all the Z-Wave devices in the house. Check the great guide TheTechyHome have written on that. So you don’t need multiple devices to control different electronic devices no more. All appliances in your home can be turned on/off and adjusted with just a push of a button. This includes locks, curtains, TVs, doors, lights, fans and other household appliances.

A Central Hub

In 21st century, you no more have to treat all your home systems individually. Now, you can think of your household devices as being responsive entities. In addition to being able to control and command all your devices, complete home automation system will enable your devices to speak the same language and communicate with each other. This interoperability will allow your air conditioner, your fans and window blinds to exchange information and coordinate from on central hub and function for the good of your home.

Security

One of the most interesting parts of home automation is surely the advanced security systems that it allow and that are very beneficial for modern family households. Security is one of the basic needs which technology haven’t neglected and which now allows us to automatize windows, doors, fences, security cameras, smoke detectors and more. Voice authentication also plays a crucial role here as it allows along with an advanced locking system to enter your home using your voice in case you lose your keys somewhere.

Automate Outdoors

Your exterior is also an area in which you can expand your home automation. You can for instance automate an event that will set a specific ambiance lighting automatically at a specific time after the sunset. You can also control the pH levels in your pool and also set a garden sprinkler system to work at a specific time and for set duration.

Today, with technologies like Wi-Fi, Z-Wave and ZigBee, a smart home resembling to the futuristic houses depicted in films are no more a myth and they are becoming simpler and more innovative.

5 Most Popular Invicta Men’s Watches

Welcome to another men’s fashion post of mine. Today we’ll be looking at the 7 best invicta watches for men. Because Invicta offers some great quality/price timepieces, these are one of the most popular best-selling watches, and which some of them are on sale, that you can offer yourself or your friends and family.
Invicta watches are the topic of debate of many watches forums because of the controversy about its quality and reputation. On this page I’ll list down our list of the most popular Invicta watches with a little comment on each one, so bear with me.

1. Invicta 8926 Pro Diverinvicta-8926

I don’t know when blogs and websites will stop making reviews on this one. The Invicta 8926 is definitely the most popular of all with  1,333 customer reviews  in Amazon. I think there are three main reasons for that : the striking resemblance to the famos Rolex Sumariner, the nice features ( like the Self-winding automatic movements ), and the low price of it especially when on sale as it has reached $75 only.
The Invicta 8926 is also 200m (656 ft.) water resistant, and its case measures 40m in with.

2. Invicta  9211 Speedway

The Invicta Speedway is a design copy success from the American watchmaker. Why I call it a copy? Well some of view may have already recognized or had an impression of deja-vu, the Invicta Speedway is a homage or copy of the Rolex Daytona (which costs  $12,000 ). It’s really hard to distinguish the difference when your not close to it.

3. Invicta 9937 Pro Diver
