Enough With The Notifications Already: What Do We Need In A Smart Home?
An average U.S. smartphone user usually receives about 46 push notifications every day. Algorithms with AI are working to improve automation while smart devices increase connectivity. A major problem with today’s smart home scenario is that different techs don’t work well with each other, ending in frustration for the users.
This “always-on” culture is especially relevant when it comes to smart homes, where the number of connected devices we own is increasing. Services like Alexa and Nest provide more convenience and control, but the unintended consequence of more smart devices is more alerts.
Most smart homes have these characteristics. The first one is that they are relevant. The most relevant activity only needs notification, such as the kids have gotten home safely, or that someone is trespassing on your property. If every time someone walks near your home and you get an alert, it could get annoying soon.
Understanding the intent and not just looking at the behavior could help us understand how a true smart home should work. It should be able to learn from the behavior, start anticipating our request and deliver accordingly. Naturally, the response is the biggest factor of smart devices. Responding in a smarter way will get the work done better, faster, and more efficiently.
