Smart home technology:

There are a lot of ways technology will make life easier at home. Concerns such as whether the coffee maker is still on or are the lights are still on, make us less productive during the day. You feel helpless, and you’re stuck worrying until you get home again. Homes with smart technology are breaking that cycle.

Imagine simply taking out your smart phone and pressing a button to turn off the lights. And at the end of the day, using your phone again to turn on your heat, the lights, and your favourite music before you even leave the office. Making homes SMART is a growing trend that has gone from button-press security systems to controlling and observing your home even while on the move.

Here are 5 Trends in Smart Home Technology:

1. Décor-Friendly Gadgets: Home automation technology can easily blend in better with your décor than other traditional devices. TechCrunch highlights thermostats with good design that are aesthetically pleasing, and smart door locks that look sleek and modern.

2. Programmable Thermostats: Have you ever heated or cooled your home for no one? Turn the heat on or down from anywhere with your smart phone or tablet with a programmable thermostat. Zone-based thermostats also use motion sensors and heat only occupied rooms making them efficient.

3. Wireless Power Controls: Home automation allows you to control devices with a single touch. Devices such as music systems, entertainment systems, could all be controlled with your device or remote controls.

4. Automated Door Locks: If you’re carrying heavy grocery bags or a crying child, unlocking your door can be quite a task. Smart locks take the guesswork out of using a key by automating your front door to unlock or even open as you approach your home.

5. Advanced Security Systems: Safety of your loved ones is a top priority for everyone. It is simple to set up and arm the security system and other alarms while you’re away with the touch of a button on your devices.

Bengaluru… Old vs New

Ever since the good old days, Bangalore has been known for its beauty and fine weather. Over the past couple of decades, Bangalore has gone through major transformations in terms of the population to the city’s infrastructure and housing projects. Although, there has been an increase in the dimensions of the city, Bangalore has been able to maintain its charm. Initially setup as a colonial outpost, the city is now unrecognizable to anyone who has been here in the early 20th century.  Amidst the chaos in today’s Bangalore, a few localities such as Sadashivnagar, Malleswaram and Basavangudi have been successful in maintaining the old world charm of the city. There has also been a widespread increase in the number of IT parks that has led to an increase in the number of Housing projects as well. Places like whitefield and electronic city has set new standards in growth of a city.
