To date, smart homes have failed to deliver a Jetsons-like experience, and smart speakers are far from Tony Stark’s Jarvis. But that does not mean the smart home market is not on the right path. In fact, smart homes are about to get a lot smarter.
Thanks to developments in consumer technology, the smart home can finally move on from analog sensors like motion and door/window contacts to more advanced solutions like radar technologies. Radar could be the next big thing for smart homes because it has so many use cases, including ultra-wideband (UWB) that can provide a better experience than Bluetooth to find things or unlock a front door and ultrasound from Amazon that can detect occupancy. For wellness, Google’s latest Nest Hub uses its Soli chip to monitor sleep patterns; meanwhile, Sengled announced a health monitoring light bulb at CES 2022, and Vayyar has been using radar technology to monitor seniors.
