Intel Explores the Future of Smart Homes
Released Monday, Intel’s Architecting the Future of the Smart Home 2025 survey reveals that there is a gap between the reality of today’s connected home and expectations for the smart home of the future.
In fact, according to the survey, 68 percent of Americans are confident that smart homes will be as commonplace as smartphones within 10 years, and ease of use, reliability, simple installation and steadfast security topped the list of consumer expectations.
To explore the possibilities that the Internet of Things holds for the home, Intel built a tiny, connected home to serve as a “living lab.”
The home, an experimental showcase that Intel will develop over the next 12 to 18 months, demonstrates the company’s intention to address key issues – from interoperability to security to actionable data outputs – and provide the hardware, software and power of the cloud to take the home from “connected” to truly “smart.”
