Updated: Sep 13, 2022

What is smart technology? Is the world heading that way and why?

Buckle your seatbelts were going to be discussing the crazy world of smart technology.

Now when we say smart tech there are usually two reactions, the first being overwhelming excitement for in-use products and the future potential or a strong wave of dread. But why do people have either reaction? Uncertainty.

Another big factor is, without saying, the wide range of dystopian, technologically advanced worlds that we see in films, shows, books and games. We have developed a flight or fight response by consuming these.

What is smart tech?

Smart Tech comes in many forms, from the phone in your hand to your ring doorbell we all have at least one piece of this tech. Some love it, some hate it but we all use it.

In a nutshell, smart tech is a technology which uses big data analysis, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to provide cognitive awareness to objects which were in the past considered inanimate.

What are the benefits?

Not only does this tech add simplicity to your life it also saves you money, and who doesn't like some extra pounds in their pocket?

Most importantly it helps conserve energy.

Helping the planet and your bank account by:

Reducing electricity bills,

Reducing water bills,

Making your home more durable,

It also improves your mental well-being due to a sense of accomplishment from doing your bit for the environment and from saving money. Especially with the cost of living crisis.

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” ― Albert Einstein

Going Green

Why is going green so important?

The big Global Warming, we've all heard of it but what exactly is it and what can we do to stop it?

Global Warming is the long-term heating of the earth's surface caused by human activity.

The best way to counteract the effects of global warming is to go green.

But what exactly is that?

Going green is simply being mindful of your impact on the earth and the ecological balance to preserve the planet, its natural resources, and its ecosystems.

By making your home more energy efficient you can make a huge positive impact on the environment, on your mental well-being and on your bank account.

Smart Homes

But how do smart products help?

The reason why smart products are so useful in combating climate change is energy conservation and seeing your usage, therefore, meaning you will be more likely to use less.

Smart lighting can make a great impact on your home's energy expenditure and carbon footprint. Lighting is so important as 17% of a home's carbon footprint is caused by lighting.
