It’s no big secret that technology is creating modern-day advantages in the work environment, but what about in the home? The question most people ask is, how? How will technology help me in everyday home life? What advantages will I gain by integrating my home?
I have to admit I have been living in the dark ages. (Insert eye roll emoji here.) I am a child of the 80’s. If we wanted to hang out with friends, we had to find them first. I remember riding my bike from my home to my friends home only to discover she wasn’t there. So on to the park downtown… again, not there. Where to now? Where could she be? If only there was a way to find her without having to ride my bike all over the town. Enter the cell phone.
I am reminded of a great movie, “Desk Set” with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. It’s a 1957 flick where Katharine’s character, an extremely knowledgeable research clerk for a television network, is in danger of losing her job to a computer. People call her and the other women in the department and ask random questions much like we ask Siri today. What are the names of Santa’s reindeer? How many inches in a mile? The computer in this movie takes up almost the whole entire department she works in. Today we hold in our hands, smartphones that contain more power than any one of the late 50’s would have thought possible.
So what’s my point by all this? Like some of you out there, I was not aware of all the possibilities that living in a smart home could offer. I was living the life of Katherine Hepburn in Desk Set, thinking technology was my enemy. It is here to help.
Remember how I mentioned seamlessly enjoying life? Every day we go through many transitions. Let Digital Living help you integrate your home to perform for you making some of these transitions feel less stressful and more, seamless.
Here are some suggested ways your Digital Living Certified Smart Home can help give you back the gift of time helping you seamlessly live life.
Start your morning off right.
Imagine warm soft lighting set to turn on with your morning alarm that gradually brightens as you wake up. Helping to smoothly transition you from sleep to wakefulness in a peaceful way. The floor starts to warm under your feet as the in-floor heating kicks in on those cool winter mornings. As you make your way to the shower your favorite song is cued when you open the door, encouraging you to have a great day. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the coffee, your coffee maker was set to go off with your alarm and has fresh brew waiting for you.
Join me each week as I post new ways your Digital Living Certified Smart Home will help make your life seamless.
