The Smart House of the Future [INFOGRAPHIC]

November 5, 2014

It’s undeniable that we are becoming fully-immersed in the Internet of Things (IoT) era. Our lives, homes, phones, cars, electronics, music, refrigerators—even clothing!—are growing increasingly connected. And smart technology is only going to get more intuitive and unified as the years pass.

At Control4, we live and breathe this stuff. It’s what makes us “tick.” We’ve been perfecting the automated home for over 10 years now and it’s amazing to see how far it has come. Besides the obvious cool factor, one of the biggest benefits of a smart home is that it gives individuals and families the ability to have their home work for them, just as it fits their lifestyle. It can be catered directly to their specific wants and needs.

Motion detectors can light up a pathway for your furry friend to reach the food bowl in the middle of the night. Your home theater can automatically adjust the blinds, temperature and lighting to accommodate your ideal movie-watching experience. With a one-button press, your entire home can shut itself down, locking the doors and arming the alarm, all at once as you leave for work in the morning. This isn’t the future, this is NOW.

We couldn’t help but wonder what people of today think the “house of the future” will look like—or what they want in their own futuristic smart home. So we took a survey and compiled some of our favorite responses into an infographic. Some may be possible, many are quite interesting, and a few are just downright outlandish.

So...What do you want in your futuristic smart home?
