One of the topics of the IoT Tech Day 2017 is Connected Living. Connected Living involves all aspects of the automation of the home, housework or household activity.
Connected Living includes centralized control of lighting, temperature control, appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care. The popularity of home automation has been increasing greatly in recent years due to much higher affordability and simplicity through smartphone and tablet connectivity.
Lots of DIY-fun and futuristic home design is expected in this topic at the IoT Tech Day 2017.
