The 5G Network, With Its Ability To Handle More Connected Devices, Could Be The Answer For A More Efficient And Reliable Smart Home.
The change to 5G will likely affect cars, phones, and even smart homes. Some manufacturers say it will increase security monitoring while most have not thought that far. AT&T will release the first ever mobile 5G network soon and the others will follow suit next year. The service will be widely available by 2020. Philips Hue bulbs, August Smart Lock, and Belkin smart plugs all use a Wi-Fi network. With 5G, setting up and handling these devices would be easier and it would also offer some consistency.
Adding 5G to smart home devices might help in making them more reliable which will assist the users and the providers, such as alarm monitoring companies.
A 5G-enabled device could automatically configure itself to a reliable, pervasive cellular network with minimal user involvement.
The main drawback here is the power consumption. However, with 5G, smart home devices would be able to provide a better performance. Before 5G can take over completely within any category, we will need proper infrastructure in place. It is likely that 5G will first replace 4G LTE-based functions.
