Smart Home Trends – the new breed of Smart Home Network Hubs

One smart home trend that looks promising is the Smart TV that also acts as your primary smart home network hub. As opposed to the traditional way of hooking up the TV/Smart TV on the home network, consumers can now opt to start a smart home network hub with ease. According to Samsung, a world leader in consumer electronics, they are going to include Internet of Things (IoT) technology along with their next lineups of “SUHD” TVs to be released this year.
While SUHD is not the Ultra-HD killer (in fact, they’re just the same thing), it’s still something to look forward to especially if you don’t have a smart home network as of yet. Maybe “S” in SUHD is smart? Either way, this television looks very promising especially if it gets to deliver. So if you’re looking to upgrade your TV to 4K resolution as well as experience smart home trends, you might want to hold off on purchasing until Samsung’s SUHD TV comes out.

Smart Home Trends – DIY Cameras and Professional Monitoring

One of the benefits of having smart home network is that you can easily add cameras to your network by adding DIY cameras. This cost-effective solution to home monitoring has been proven to be easy and reliable especially if you are quite knowledgeable with smart home trends. Consumers who have a Wi-Fi network as well as an outlet can easily hook this up to get started.

The only catch with DIY cameras is the fact that you will have to manually do the surveillance. Another notable flaw is that it takes some time to start the app which will give potential robbers some time to steal stuff unnoticed. Fortunately, there are professional monitoring services being offered nowadays for your complete peace of mind. While smart home cameras are reliable and helpful, having professional help – especially when you need it – is an amazing added feature.
