You may have noticed how many appliances or applications are now labeled as ‘smart.’ But until you try them, it might be up for grabs just how smart purchasing them could be for your business. To do a little bit of mental trial and error, it’s not a bad idea to think about what would happen if you install these things, and the consequences, positive or negative, that could come from them.

There is smart landscaping, smart wearables, smart heating and cooling, and a smart, central brain to hook it all together. Once you go down the path of smart, you may wonder if it was worth it in the first place, or if you’ll never go back.

Smart Landscaping

Smart landscaping is a newcomer to the realm of intelligent things. It might have to do with control over how much water gets used for a landscaping process, for example how smart sprinkler controls would be used. Or it might have to do with heating lamps or humidity control or even how much light gets pointed at certain areas of your yard on a daily basis. Really, the more creative landscapers get, the better they can use these smart controls to their advantage. The question to your business is going to be if the learning curve is too steep for you to benefit from these processes or not.

Smart Wearables

And what about using smart wearables for business advantages? An example of this might be if you own a gym or workout place, can it benefit you to have your employees or even your customers wear these smart sensors to determine the quality of the workouts? Ultimately, the quality of the wearables might make a big difference as to how well different types of activities are sensed. You might try to guess what would be better – wearing smart clothes that judge your posture and strength technique or having a personal trainer that can do the same thing.

Smart Heating and Cooling

Smart heating and cooling have been around for a while. And as long as you set your sensors up in your temperatures appropriately, they can create a distinct benefit for your business. If you know when people are going to be in your building and you know what rooms are in use and you know how much energy it takes to make people comfortable, then creating smart heating and cooling will quickly create an ideal situation regardless of time and circumstance.

The Smart, Central Brain

Typically, there’s going be a smart central brain that connects all of your applications and devices. Sometimes the central brain is going to be your mobile phone and the applications that are on it. Or more regularly now, the smart central brain is something like Alexa that controls everything through voice commands.
