Everything around us seems to be smart these days. We have a smart watches smartphones and now we have smart homes that are controlled by a single tablet. Reporter Morgan Wheeler took tour of a smart home that just might be the future for homeowners. An HDTV smart home has keyless doors, motion activated and musical toilets and refrigerators that can show you you need eggs and butter while you’re still in the grocery store. But how soon will homeowners see this in their houses? I have one in my own home where my kids can come and go without keys and I can let people in even if I’m not in the house. One generator, one smart tablet and a whole lot of smart technology is all it takes to get this 1.5 million dollar smart home in Scottsdale running. This becomes the keys to your entire house whether it’s your lighting system, your audio visual system your safety and security system. The master bathroom has some of the latest tech gadgets with one thing that catches the eye and ear: a motion monitored toilet automatically lifts up the seat cover. It also plays music. The technology continues in the kitchen. The refrigerator is always kind of like the home’s bulletin board. It’s where you put the artworks that the kids make it’s where you put your to-do list or your shopping list. It also has a built-in camera. Homeowners can remotely look inside while out shopping all from a smartphone. All the smart technology features can be useful but how realistic is it for homeowners to purchase or install their own smart home system? You take any home and spend anywhere from a thousand to two thousand dollars and make it very smart and have it do a lot of things. Smart isn’t as expensive as it used to be. Smart home security could be tricky just like with a regular home. Anyone can get in if they want to. You can do really smart things like make sure that your router has a safe and secure password, your keyless system has a safe and secure password and that if you lose your phone you immediately are aware and you can lock that up so that nobody can grab it and have access to your home. Also if the internet system crashes there is the possibility of outsiders hacking in. Another possible downside, if a smart tablet dies you won’t have access to the home. Homeowners should think about having a generator installed to run those smart items in case of a power outage. In the Broadcast Center, Morgan Wheeler Cronkite News.
