It has been over a decade that Smarthome technology was introduced in India and since then there have been considerable advances in terms of technology. Agreed that this is made for a particular segment and not for each one of us. However, there are a few myths that you must get rid of when you think of having a Smarthome.
Myth 1 : It is expensive
This is one of the most common myth that a lot of us would believe. It can be expensive if you go for a customized Smarthome but, they aren’t always expensive to remember. You can smartly pick up not so costly smart offerings for home.
Once you are happy with your first purchase and find it budget friendly go for one or two more devices with sensors.
Some brands offer interesting deals on e-commerce such as Flipkart and Amazon.
Myth 2: They aren’t listening to you
Most people have this perception that a Smart home device listen to you all the time but that isn’t true, you would understand this when you would get your first smart assistant devices such as Alexa or Google Home.
It is right that they are alert and awake but to your command after calling them out like ‘Alexa’ or ‘Hey, Google.’ Hence, unless you send these wake-up calls, the device would not react and take command.
If you still have doubts then try to understand from the technical angle, if Alexa or Google Home send most of our statement for cloud processing (data processing and storage) then how much network usage will happen.
