Thanks to constant technological innovations, the house of tomorrow already exists to some extent today. More and more connected and autonomous, it also seeks to respect the environment and to make us save energy. Let’s zoom in on the future house and its promises.
The future house: a comfortable and 100% connected house
In the digital age, the house is transformed into a jewel of technology. All the connected objects in the different rooms are controlled via a smartphone and a tablet that centralizes various functions for the greater comfort of its occupants. Here are some 2.0 innovations that are likely to become indispensable to your home.
The living room
Among the connected objects that are likely to take a permanent place in your living room, there is the library of the future with a transparent flat screen for music and movie lovers. Its screen (invisible when not in use) displays your favorite playlists and allows you to watch movies in your living room.
The smart refrigerator makes life easier for those who are in a hurry and those who are new to cooking. It detects missing ingredients, expired food and allows you to order your groceries automatically wherever you are. And that’s not all, its integrated touch screen, its connected table and its camera help you to elaborate recipes step by step.
For optimal rest at night, treat yourself to a smart mattress. It monitors the quality of your sleep via sensors and modulates and elevates itself if needed. The next day, take stock of your night via an application on your smartphone.
The future house: an ecological and economical house
A controlled energy consumption
A connected and automated house allows you to control your energy consumption and adapt it to your needs. Programming the use of heating, electricity, lighting systems and electronic equipment according to one’s lifestyle ensures energy savings (automated opening and closing of doors and shutters, etc.).
Ecological and recyclable materials
Designers and architects are increasingly turning to the use of ecological materials to envision the houses of the future. The green roof is one of them. It would allow to keep a freshness between 15 and 20° in summer knowing that a classic roof can see its temperature going up to 60°. This type of roof would also constitute an excellent natural insulator in winter.
The house of the future wants to be autonomous and advocates recycling. The windows or bay windows will contain photovoltaic cells that produce self-cleaning electricity. A rainwater recovery system on the roofs of the dwellings will supply the washing machine or the toilets.
