Technology at Home: The Smart Home Trend

The internet was first made available to the public during the early 90s, and since then, its features have evolved exponentially and has changed the way we go about our daily lives. Today, Smart Home Technology has taken the power of tech to the next level, enabling smart homeowners to activate appliances and systems remotely, making their lives far more simple and efficient.

Home automation is taking the world by storm as smart home devices offer a much needed convenience of making day to day tasks easier, simpler, and safer. Diyar Al Muharraq has managed to translate safe and smart living on a larger scale, using various energy-saving features such as LED lights, Smart Home System and smart electricity meters across many of its projects. In this digitally-enabled era, homeowners no longer have to worry about whether they have forgotten to turn off a device at home as there are applications that can be programmed to switch off any device at their home remotely, and they can even set a schedule to turn appliances on and off.  

As part of our vision of creating a future-ready, fully-integrated model city at Diyar, we pride ourselves on maintaining a minimal carbon footprint through the use of advanced technologies that are in line with global standards, throughout all construction stages of our projects. We’ve invested in various studies that look for innovative ways to preserve the environment and have consulted with several environmental specialists in order to develop a smart and sustainable infrastructure that fulfills the needs of our residents. A complete sewage treatment network has been installed for the entire Southern Island, where wastewater is converted directly into a deep reservoir near the entrance to the City. We also have on hand home automation systems and smart home applications available upon request for owners of Al Bareh and Al Naseem villas, where devices like smart air conditioners can be remotely turned on or off in addition to being able to manage the thermostats. Implementing such smart services comes in line with our energy-saving and sustainability ethos at Diyar Al Muharraq.

At Diyar Al Muharraq, we plan to enable our future residents to benefit from smart homes and intelligent automation systems installed in their houses.  

Below you’ll find a helpful list including all you might need to know regarding Smart Homes.

1/The Potential

Fortunately, the emergence of smart home technology has opened doors to various possibilities with leveraged connectivity allowing homeowners to get remote access to their residences.

The recent trend in smart home application combines artificial intelligence and automation to offer advanced technological appliances and security. The rise in wireless technology and connectivity means that there are now more opportunities than ever to create a home automation system, controlling everything from lighting, heating, to windows using nothing more than voice commands, a visual interface, or a mobile app.

2/ IoT Kitchens 

Today’s kitchens can be equipped with smart lights that respond to voice commands or even be remotely controlled using a smartphone.  Motors can be strategically placed, enabling shelves and cabinets to be raised or lowered on command, countertops can be built to hide appliances and magically open up when needed, and can be beautifully integrated within natural stone or porcelain countertops.

Lack of connectivity is one of the major problems that stand in the way of creating a seamless user experience when it comes to creating a smart home. Accordingly, companies that specialize in designing smart home appliances are working extensively to address this challenge by implementing different approaches, in the likes of offering a control hub that enables centralized management of connected devices.

4/Security and Privacy

When it comes to smart home appliances, homeowners need to be mindful of how their data is being used, ensuring that they understand how they can maximize the benefit of the service being offered while maintaining security and privacy. 

5/ The Future of Smart Homes

The future envisages smart homes that are entirely intuitive, proactively managing every routine action and day-to-day tasks for residents, offering unparalleled levels of convenience and insights into home maintenance, with optimized ongoing machine learning.
