In this episode I’m looking at smart home technology. From remote controls to the Clapper, we’ll find out where it began and where it’s headed. I’m also joined by none other than Bill Gates about how climate change and optimizing energy usage play a part in revolutionizing our homes.

Story Time. This is an illustration of how fast technology has moved. In 2014 I was a home integration specialist. Essentially salesperson that sold smart home and home theaters to wealthy people in Rancho Santa Fe, Cali. We used the Savant System. We also sold a box and subscription service...this should blow your mind...so our clients could screen current movies in their home theaters....and they signed a contract where they couldn't turn it into a small theater. Strictly home use. One deal...145k . Home Theater with 4k projection. Lutron Lights, sec cam, temp controlled rack room. Outdoor speakers. My commision? Average yearly income for Americans. You can order all of this from Amazon now. Your lighting will be better...and your cams will be better. The only thing that has yet to come is a cool feature of the Savant system. Imagjne a picture of your living room. Imagine lights on end tables. You could be at work and touch the iPad (what we used for remotes) on the pic of the lights and turn them on...same with TV and HVAC and sound system. But all the money for features that the average person can afford now...12k was charged for our programmer to program the system. Anyway....7 years later and all that money was waisted.....except for the family's proscenium....we had a master carpenter and interor designer..that shit was beautiful.

The segway at the very end from the current video to the wearable tech video, just by gesture, suggestive language strategically followed by the SVdown pop up by Marques, is the well thought out content execution I'm here for 🙌🏾. Enjoying your content from South Africa 🇿🇦.

but for that to happen price also need to come down... at least in one of the things as most of population is middle class or below that economical line. There should be price comedown in real estate or the energy producing tools. even electric vehicles also very pricey at least in my country. but we are in transition period.

I feel like it has taken super computer level computing power and hyper complex programming iterated over decades that we just now are getting some useful smart home applications. The ideas were made much earlier but the convenient solutions were so hard to build.

I live in Toronto and the f**king automated door system on my building is absolute garbage LOL the f**kers just never seem to work and have extreme lag times when they just so happen to somewhat work I miss the good old days when I could push a door open in a quarter of a second no problem instead of waiting 10 seconds for a Computer to acknowledge my presence. Just saying but some of this automation is not for the best.

Hey, your harsh I've been paralyzed since 1986 & those technologies bundled in the butler in a box, worked better than Alexa in some few cases, but when you can't move your arms let alone hands those devices are life changers, Combine them and you get butler in a box, which allowed me to turn on TV, light, and more with just your voice was awesome. It evolved slowly and now is obsolete. Same with Voice Recognition, Dragon Dictate was a separate unit and now is called Dragon naturally speaking and Voice recognition for Google, Apple, Microsoft still can't touch it for accuracy, and learns by it's mistakes and cloud does not. Ps.. Need to get Dragon again installed, "This was brought to you one click at a time plus word prediction. Hope it's readable. I wrote this before I saw the end please don't rip in to me :-)
