Tech Trends Making Our Homes Smarter

There’s no doubt technology is changing the way we live, and it’s been doing so for years. Smartphones and smart homes are catering to our daily lives in ways we’d never have imagined.

On the homefront, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) – where all the devices in your life are connect­ed to the internet – are driving the change. We’re already seeing self-driving vacuum cleaners, fridges that keep track of your food stocks and write your grocery list, beds that monitor your health and help you sleep better, doors that auto-un­lock when you approach and washing machines you can switch on from your smartphone. It's the connectivity and inter­connectivity of appliances and systems such as lighting and heating that are making our homes smarter and smarter, with Wi-Fi increasingly a feature of appliances and gadgets, apps that bring it all together, and voice-controlled virtual assistants a trend on the rise.

With digitalisation advancing nearly every other aspect of our lives, it makes sense that it extends to water use in our homes. Not only do digital plumbing products offer customers convenience, customisation and luxury, there are many additional benefits to the technology.
