Home – the internet of things
IFA organisers commented: “In future, smart home technologies will become an increasingly integral part of our daily lives. Digitally networked devices will make life easier and more efficient in our homes. Washing machines will only start when energy prices are low. Heating and air-conditioning systems will adapt to their users’ daily habits. In the future, will smart devices be able to make decisions? What part can they play in making use of energy and other resources in more efficient ways?
“This session examines the role of smart home technologies in solving basic society issues.”
