Your home has some magic tricks up is sleeves, Spanish style
A Spanish family of four is already living more than two years in to the future. This family is currently the guinea pig for eNeo Labs’ show home located on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain.
What makes a smart home
This Spanish company aims to show us what it’s like to be living in a home already equipped with full intelligence capabilities. Apparently, the company’s aim was to move beyond the brick-and-mortar establishments we call ‘home’ and add a new dimension – intelligence – into the mix. ‘Intelligent’ Homes should be able to adapt the living space to the household’s needs, predict inhabitants’ routines and then adapt accordingly!
The physiology of a smart home can be likened to that of the smartest machine of all – our own bodies. The ‘brain’ of the home is like a control center, where observed and collected information about inhabitants’ habits, schedules and needs is coordinated to goings-on outside the home. The second component of a smart home is an ‘information network’ – sort of like the body’s nervous system, where commands from the brain are carried out by diverging devices.
