The computing world by storm and delivers innovative solutions to complex problems. There are many different applications and gadgets available to the business owner or IT manager to help them deal with the complexities of modern day businesses. With the increase in technology companies and individuals are becoming more interested in integrating technology with their work practices. Smart technologies are here to stay and the early adopters are reaping the benefits and creating success stories all over the world.
Let’s discuss some of the most important examples of smart technology:
Smart Technology in action: The use of Smart Technologies in the healthcare sector includes: sensors, diagnostics, computer health care and analytics. SMART technology has evolved into many different components and forms, with many of them being readily available in hospitals, doctors’ offices and even pharmacies. Smart Technologies and Smart Workplaces have played an enormous part in the PropTech sector for many years and continue to go through many evolutions and transitions on a day-to-day basis. A wide range of innovative solutions now exist out there that are primarily focused on workflow management, productivity, workflow analytics, access control and analytics. In addition to being used in the healthcare sector SMART technologies can be applied in many other industries, and they’re becoming more widespread and flexible as the years roll by.
An example of smart technology used in the healthcare sector would be the use of ingestible sensors to locate possible problems and administer treatment when necessary. Healthcare personnel may place an ingestible sensor throughout their workplace to monitor and report any changes in temperature, lighting, air quality and the like which could potentially be a sign of a serious problem. If temperature and air quality changes are occurring at random intervals, an employee can alert the facility management or the doctor if they believe this is indicative of a serious problem which requires further attention. While traditional methods are still used to locate and identify problems such as poor lighting or inefficient HVAC equipment an ingestible sensor can provide a more accurate diagnosis.
remotely control lights and appliances in a home
Other examples of smart technology that may include smart city technologies in high-end cities around the world include the installation of motion detectors, which would allow people to remotely control lights and appliances in a home. Additionally, these devices may include smart thermostats which would allow homeowners to control the temperature of their homes based on the season. Some of these advanced devices may also offer artificial intelligence that may allow them to recognize when they are entering or leaving a room and set the temperature accordingly. Furthermore, these smart devices may include closed circuit cameras which would allow for the monitoring of homes and offices by security personnel. The additional benefit of such intelligent systems would be the ability to remotely control lighting, heating and other home appliances and systems.
Connectivity among smart homes or smart technology centers may extend to the entire neighborhood. When a homeowner connects their smart home with a wireless router, security measures and other appliances can be controlled wirelessly through the Internet. Further, when smart homes or smart technology centers connect with one another through wireless networks or IP networks, this allows for seamless connectivity between the smart home and other smart devices as well as with a local workforce or the local emergency response team.
Finally, smart technology can also be used to automate certain aspects of the home such as the garage. Smart garage door openers can be programmed to open the doors only when the car is parked in the driveway, only when the car has started or only when it is shuttling someone to their destination. Such automation allows for a home security system to focus on more important aspects of security such as monitoring the vehicle in its parking area and preventing the access of unauthorized persons into the home or building. In the future, as smart technology advances and becomes more efficient, smart home security systems will enable homeowners to enjoy even greater security and added peace of mind. It is expected that smart technology systems will become more widespread and sophisticated in the future and will enable homeowners to enjoy added benefits such as: saving energy, saving money, preventing vandalism, preventing the onset of crime and improving the security of the home and family.
