Let's explore how IoT is changing the future of home automation Industry 

Home Security with IoT sensors: One of the important aspects of home automation is security. An IoT enabled home automation system can differentiate between homeowners, friends, relatives, and strangers. If there is a stranger near home or at door entrances, it immediately sends an alert to the owner's smartphone. AI-enabled video doorbells are tailored to recognize faces and provide information about individuals. Family members can evaluate the efficiency of IoT systems anytime, anywhere, even when internet connectivity is poor or unavailable. 

Easy Usage: IoT smart home solutions enable users to operate home appliances even before they enter the house. It enables users to control thermostats, air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, sprinklers, water pumps, and coffee machines with voice commands, web platforms, smart wearables, and mobile phones for enhanced convenience.  

Self-Maintainance Alerts: Apart from the automation of various tasks at home, IoT enabled smart devices can self-diagnose their performance. The device automatically alerts a manufacturer before a product fails to perform. Manufacturers then alerts the users when it is time to service them. IoT enabled refrigerators can alert users about food shortage and wastage so that grocery orders can be placed to replenish them. Also, smart window blinds adjust to daylight changes for the comfort of homeowners.
