Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Assistants have changed the way our homes operate in the current times. As we continue to use technology in almost everything we do and use, everyday home devices are now being connected to the internet and operate in sync with each other. The penetration of technology has made Smart Homes much smarter and comfortable for us.
In 2020, the major enterprises are integrating their offerings, and the technologies are fast evolving to give us more efficient and highly coordinated systems for our homes.
1] Smart Homes
Machine Learning and AI help the devices to understand the needs and behavioral patterns of the homeowners to tweak the performance of the smart home devices as needed. The Smart Home devices can connect and be controlled via smartphone. Home appliances will also get smarter now and can be controlled remotely without any hassle.

2] Common Standardization
One of the loopholes in the Smart Home systems implementation was the lack of a uniform standard through which various devices can be put together. There are devices available in the market compatible with the virtual assistants from different companies. However, we would see a common standard in the coming years as companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple are working on building open source Smart Home standards and protocols. The need for standardization is to ensure that the homeowners do not face problems while using multiple smart home devices from distinctive manufacturers.
Devices should work on various platforms and accessories from different manufacturers should be compatible with each other, giving consumers freedom of choice.
3] Faster Networks
As Wi-Fi 6, the advanced and next generation of wireless internet connectivity is available now, the devices connected in the home network can now communicate with each other and the internet more quickly and more efficiently. Also, the 5G connectivity is out now, so the Smart Homes devices will link faster, and the stronger network coverage will ensure that the data processing and sharing is never hurdled. Faster networks help the Smart Homes devices to talk cloud more quickly, and data transfer would be extremely fast in real-time.
4] Lower Power Consumption and Higher Security
The new Devices work and communicate faster, making sure there is less power consumption; there is less use of resources and faster work. In 2020 we would see wireless, cable-less and minimal power consumption devices.
Facial recognition, multiple levels of authentication and reliable monitoring systems ensure that Smart Homes are secure and safe.
5] Home Robots
As AI and AR continue to evolve, we would see the robots taking the place of the house helps in our homes. The homeowners would be able to accomplish day to day tasks with the help of these robots with much ease. Right now, Robots are used for cleaning homes and carpets with the help of tiny Robotic Vacuum cleaners. Newer robots will help you do cooking, cleaning and even aiding in healthcare as companies like LG are exploring the technologies to create high-end robots. The new age robots will help you do many tasks freeing you up of the daily chores.
6] Health Care at Home
With the help of new-age AI-enabled d3vices, most of the typical healthcare functions can be done more efficiently at home. This relieves the stress of the age-old ways of getting medical help. You can now regularly monitor your activity levels, nutrition and sleep patterns with support of the smartwatches and other devices. The process of connecting with doctors and specialists remotely over the internet will help aid people to get medical aid faster. Artificial Intelligence would also help people diagnose illnesses.
