How About a Smart House/House Automation?
With the prevalence of technology in everyday life, people firstly had iPhone that could get rid of keyboard and touchscreen. Then, people could chat with personal assistant apps or systems on the phone, such as Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa. A smart house that people could control by voice also became a popular trend.
There are three generations of house automation. The first generation is a wireless technology with a proxy server; the Second generation is artificial intelligence controls electrical devices, such as Amazon Echo; the Third generation: robot buddy who interacts with humans, e.g. Robot Rovio, Roomba.
Virtual voice-controlled assistants like we mentioned earlier make it easy to control smart home products by speaking simple commands like “Alexa, turn off the lights.” But, do we need to worry about the security? Could people hacking my devices add to change my house setting, such as adjust the temperature?
