Intertek Helps Enable Smart Homes Everywhere

Thanks to the government and regulatory initiatives and incentives for implementing smart homes, the global smart home market is expected to grow over the next six years. A smart home system integrates multiple electrical devices within a house. The technologies employed in smart home automation include the control of domestic activities, such as home electronics and entertainment systems, plant watering, pet feeding, environmental ambiance for different events such as dinners and parties.

Devices can be connected through a home network to allow control by a personal smart device, like a smartphone or tablet, and remote access from the internet. Through the integration of information technologies with the home environment, systems and appliances are able to communicate with each other, which results in convenience, energy efficiency and security benefits.

Go green and save energy by turning off anything that is plugged in by using a smart home plug. Smart home can also apply to home safety and security. Protect your home using security systems with the fingerprint door locks, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that communicate and wireless sensors to ensure the safety of your family and properties.
