Listening to your HOME is the Future of IoT

Your Home is Talking. So is earth. Are you Listening? Your home isn’t going to fail without warning. Both your residence and our planet are offering signals of distress. Listen, and you’ll understand how AI and automation can truly help revolutionize the way we live, interact with our environment and use our resources smarter. The future smart home doesn’t just have technology that entertains, advertises, or sells you more things. It’s technology that can automatically help you be as efficient as possible. It’s tech for the greater good that’s automating our ability to be as efficient as possible. Our panelists help your home run smooth, and believe the future of smart living = using our resources more efficiently to save homeowners money (energy efficiency and water conservation).
