Trend of 2015 – Connected Homes and Cars

From Google’s I/O conference to the Apple WWDC 2014, the smart home concept was definitely the most talked about this year, and it’s likely that we will more on these two fronts from both Apple and Google.

Apple introduced HomeKit during its annual developers conference this year and essentially the app will allow users to connect their iPhone/iPad and control things like garage doors, lights, security cameras, even thermostats and switches. Users can just control these through Siri.

For example, they could say “Get ready for bed” and the house lights will dim. Of course, you’ll need to have products that are certified for the HomeKit and the company announced that it would run a certification program for HomeKit and initial partners include August, Honeywell; iHome; TI; and about a dozen more.
