Apple Provides Consumers With An Up-Close Look At Its Smart Products Work
The Smart Home phenomenon is still drawing lots of attention from consumers worldwide. Home automation allows people to control and manage their home from afar. This capability is very appealing to individuals that spend a large portion of their time at work, school and traveling.
Amazon leads the Smart Home market, with more than 7 million of its connected devices installed in home across the world. Hundreds of tech companies have already partnered with Apple, with thousands more expected to join in the near future. Apple describes its HomeKit as “a framework for communicating with and controlling connected accessories in a user’s home.”
Of course, many individuals do not grasp the concept of Smart technologies, because they have been hesitant to do any research on the topic. Connect home devices are still attached to a high price tag, which is also the major factor slowing the progress of the market. Well, now consumers will have an opportunity to view the Home app in an up-close and personal manner. The Apple.com website recently underwent a total transformation and now it provides visitors with a 45-second video that demonstrates the Home app in action.
The video shows a lady being awakened by Siri, a virtual personal assistant. As the lady arises from the bed, Siri tells her that her home is ready for the day, the shades automatically raise and the ceiling light automatically switches on. The lady activates the coffee maker, adjusts the ambient temperature setting on the Honeywell Lyric Thermostat and locks the front, as she exits the home directly from her connected phone. The Kwikset Smart Lock synchronizes with the shades, thermostat and lighting fixtures, shutting everything down. When the lady arrives home, the same devices will respond by welcoming her home.
Consumers will be able to watch the video and learn more about how Smart technologies work, with the Home app and HomeKit-enabled devices. With the Home app, users can create time, so the connected devices will automatically switch on/off at specific times and scenes, where a set of actions will be triggered with voice or a simple tap.
