Differentiating Elements of a Modern Luxury Smart Home
For a smart home to fit into a luxurious concept, it’s the little details that matter. The material and hand feel of a device determine whether the gadget looks luxurious or not. According to Koble Co-founder and smart home expert, Eric Yeo, things like a tempered glass smart switch that looks sleek and fingerprint resistant can make all the difference in the electrical fixtures of a luxury home setting.
The difference between luxury and other interior styles when it comes to smart home installations is placing importance on selecting decor-friendly gadgets for the space. What good is smart home technology if it clashes with your home’s décor and ambiance? On top of the function, we increasingly choose to make sure the home automation technologies also look nice and are able to blend into the room style. Smart devices need aesthetically pleasing good design, smart door locks need to look sleek and modern, and lastly, pop-up plugs are another luxurious looking solution to keep bulky appliances when not in use.
Top 5 Must-Have Smart Home Appliances for 2021
The key to picking smart home appliances is to check their connectivity, making sure that they are able to pair with other smart home devices you have at your home making the whole experience an integrated one.

Tips to Enhance the Security of a Smart Home System
When considering about security of a Smart Home, there are two things to look at. One is the actual security these smart devices offer for your house which we have addressed earlier. Next, is the security of these devices from being cyber hacked due to their constant connectivity to the internet. How do you protect yourself from these cyber attacks? On a basic level, you need to make sure that all your devices have a unique password and store them in a password manager.
If you subscribe to a smart tech provider service, always make sure that you are aware of how your data is collected and opt for a reputable service provider so that there are no potential data breaches.
Smart Home Customer Service
When installing your smart home with us, you will likely be advised to pick options that have the highest connectivity between all devices. According to Yeo, “on top of wifi connectivity, most smart home devices will still be connected to physical switches such as Zigbee Hub and Switch where you will be able to manually switch on/off any appliances”.
Other than that, Koble’s app has an FAQ page where you can troubleshoot any commonly faced problems and if the issue is still unsolved, you may contact a smart home specialist such as Eric himself.
Burgeoning Trends in Smart Home Automation Technology
What’s in store for smart home technology in 2021? Well, home zoning where the different rooms in a house can be set in different temperatures. For example, the bedroom can have a lower air-conditioning temperature setting compared to the living room as we tend to sweat more under the sheets during our nighttime sleep. There are other things that can be tweaked for different room settings as well such as color and intensity of light, sensor sensitivity settings, and many more.
Smart devices are also getting really smart due to machine learning and A.I. As a device collects data of a user’s patterns, its responses are calibrated and improved over time to the user’s daily routine and responses.
Lastly, there is also an increase in smart healthcare devices in the market likely inspired by people’s desire for health and wellness. A bed with smart features can monitor and track your sleep quality. Mood-aware devices can track and detect depression by analyzing data such as heart rate and blood pressure. Communication devices with sensors built in them can aid remote consultation and care in the event that a patient is not able to physically make a visit to see the doctor.
