Today, most homeowners have at least one piece of smart technology, and experts predict that within the next year, globally, each person will own at least six IoT devices. In 2020, smart device manufacturers are working diligently to upgrade existing IoT tech; not surprisingly, they’re succeeding at a breakneck pace. Home automation tech is now integrating more effective, efficient artificial intelligence systems designed to make life easier and more productive, and homeowners everywhere are scrambling to get their hands on the newest systems and gadgets. What might your home require in 2020 to stay up-to-date with smart home tech? The team at Bravas discusses a few of the advancements to watch for. 


Ongoing Artificial Intelligence Improvements

Smart speakers and digital assistants have given rise to massive improvements in voice recognition technology over the past few years. In 2020, those improvements are slated to continue, with many manufacturers working to deliver devices with a more comprehensive understanding of complex verbal instructions. As this technology continues to advance, home automation devices and systems will allow you to offload more of your menial tasks to technology. What could you do with more free time on your hands?


Smarter Entertainment

These days, just about every homeowner has a smart tv, but even more intelligent entertainment is on the radar for 2020. Just a few of the tech upgrades set to make a splash include:


●        More advanced, in-home virtual reality

●        Augmented reality

●        Mixed reality

●        Ultra HD televisions and projectors and higher resolution monitors

●        Higher definition audio in more compact devices


In 2020, fine-tuning your playback experience is set to become easier than ever—especially when devices integrate seamlessly into a whole-home AV setup. With just a touch of a button or single voice command, you can operate room-to-room entertainment from anywhere in your home.


Smarter Bathrooms and Kitchens

The smart refrigerator has already made its debut, along with a host of smart kitchen gadgets like faucets, induction cookers, smart grills, and crockpots, among others. In 2020, bathrooms are about to get more intelligent, too. Smart showers, heated toilets, and voice-activated mirrors are just a few of the up-and-coming gadgets set to make bathroom experiences easier and more comfortable. In a well-connected smart home, these gadgets will integrate seamlessly with centralized home automation systems, so you can keep an eye on your cooking—even when nature calls.
