If you’re curious about what
CES is, find the long-winded answer at CES 2019. CES 2020 portrays the world of
smart home tech, is living in the future with many more exciting things to
The Smart Pet Category Continues to Grow
From smart dog toys to collars, the world of smart pet
The first product we ran into was iKuddle selling a
vision to the future for household pets. The innovative development of a smart
litter box allows:
Deodorizing System – filters air ensuring the litter
box smells fresh
App Connection – with a touch of a few buttons,
download the iKuddle app on your smart device.
Self-Cleaning – IR sensors detect each time your kitty
cat is done doing their business; a timer will start to initiate cleaning.
Auto Litter Packing – Press the auto packing button on
the litter box to deposit waste into small bags.
Dog Collars Get Much Smarter
An improved GPS smart dog collars allow pet owners to
keep a more balanced lifestyle for your furry friend. Monitor health, the activity
of your pet, location, and more.
Cameras Improving Facial Recognition
Cameras can be an impressive piece of the smart home
pie. Traditionally, what separates cameras are these main categories: design,
installation, and video quality — a more improved facial recognition in the mix
that seems to be more prominent making devices.
The Emerging Smart Pots & Pan
That’s right; pots and pans. I’m not one who likes to cook. Particularly, I overcook or undercook everything. Now that smart pans are becoming more relevant, that will change. Let the app walk you through the exact ingredients, tell you the temperature, and even when to flip that salmon to a nice golden brown.
AI had the pleasure of joining my colleague Kyle, who
had the following to say, ‘This is my 13th year in attendance, and I am just as
excited as the first time I went…and, today certainly didn’t disappoint. I
was most impressed by the growth in the area of many existing brands committed
to growing their ecosystems in both the number of devices and to improvements
in functionality. This is particularly exciting to me for two reasons; it means
that consumers can use a single (or fewer) brand(s), and app(s), to automate
their home; also, the reliability of those products is getting better. Of
course, there is still a missing holy grail of unifying everything
somehow…maybe that isn’t possible…yet…we may have something up our sleeve.
I also wanted to say that in regards to innovation
there is a movement towards automation of cooking (more recent) and health (not
so recent), but I can see the advantages to harmonizing these things into a
better lifestyle as well, something we can ll probably improve on a little.
Really look forward to the next couple days and working with some existing and new
partners to make 2020 an great year for smart home consumers!’
Please note this is just day one of CES. Tune in
tomorrow to see other emerging smart home technology we see.
