Smart homes have become an integral part of our daily lives, and adding value with AI applications proves to be one of the best ways to ensure safety and security.

FREMONT, CA: According to a study, annual sales of all connected home devices are expected to exceed 520 million units by 2022. Specific use cases for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the smart homes help in driven adoption of new devices and services as intelligent outcomes increase product value. Smart home control has achieved through cloud-to-cloud integrations of point solutions or systems that do not rely on traditional hardware controllers. AI can act on data gathered by every home automation device or system to anticipate user behavior, provide maintenance data, or help increase data privacy and security. AI applications will improve the user experience and add value to smart homes in numerous ways, be it local hardware-enabled or cloud-based intelligence.

The smart home application can study the occupants' routines and make auguring recommendations for automation series that make life more secure, comfortable, and convenient. Systems designed autonomously have been entering the market. After a short period of learning the occupant's behavioral patterns, the intelligent autonomous system starts the wave of home automation in real-time. Machine learning, applied initially to enterprise facilities management and the industrial Internet of Things, is now to be applied to devise telemetry data. Predictive maintenance offers benefits over reactive maintenance and preventive maintenance by anticipating potential problems and intervening.

AI can detect maintenance concerns and automatically notify the user. Communications with consumers around AI-driven traits are best treated, incrementally and gently. Consumer control and trust in data sharing are significant. The intelligence of a system best functions as an expansion of the owner's information that contributes to more convenience, safety, and peace of mind.
