Smart Home Technology Can Save a lot of your Time

Convenience is the core attraction of smart home technology. Imagine a house where you remotely operate your appliances; before you reach your home. Whether its wanting your AC to be turned on or even opening the garage door from the comfort of your car, smart technology is a world of comforts.

Nearly every smart home appliance or device will save ample time and provide comfort by eliminating the manual tasks of your life, providing you easy access to your accessories, and enabling you to exercise a distant reach to your home-based gadgets.

Smart Home

We will discuss some of these gadgets that can enable you to enjoy the perks of smart home tech.

Smart Speakers

Robot Vacuums

With a smart robot available to clean your floor and keep your room hygienic, are you going to pick up the erstwhile handy vacuum cleaner yourself to clean your room?

Of course not! With the advent of smart robot vacuums, which will do it all for you, you can save your precious time being spent in cleaning the room for some productive activity. Robot vacuums are smart devices with intelligent programming for a built-in vacuum cleaning system. The intriguing part of the new model is that it remembers the layout of your house.

Several competent cleaners like iRobot’s Roomba series and Neato Botvacs are very popular choices in the market, which can traverse your halls, maintain your floors’ tidiness, and keep you free from this hectic chore.

The cost of this perk is, however, not that easy to digest. Robot vacuums are available in the price range of $300 (older models) to $1,000+. But the device is worth paying for and shall justify its price once it’s properly deployed to patrol your household.

Smart Appliances

Smart Wi-Fi-connected appliances are available in a huge variety and can save you ample time in various ways. You can enjoy a remote access to your smart ovens (available brands are Whirlpool and GE), using an app. With this, you can get your supper ready much faster and easily when you reach home. Enjoy warm food as soon as your reach your residence.

Smart refrigerators (famous brand: Samsung Family Hub) have installed interior cameras that you can access with an app and it’s a very useful gadget indeed. Imagine you are in a grocery store and you forgot whether you have milk at your home or not. No worries! Take a look inside your fridge through the refrigerator app and decide whether or not you have to purchase any specific items.

Smart washers and dryers are another luxurious option to facilitate your life. These devices can update you on your laundry if your clothes are ready or not, even when you are off the station. Besides, interestingly, smart washers and smart dishwashers can place an order for detergent through Amazon Dash, and this option will further ease your shopping pain. They can even track what quantity you use and can place likewise orders automatically.

Smart Plugs

Are you too lazy to get up and switch on an electronic device? A smart plug will provide ease of use by assisting you in bridging the gap to walled electric boards. It is basically a power container that plugs into a conventional electrical socket and integrates it with your smart network. It enables you to control/access your plugged device from an integrated app on your mobile phone or via your voice through a virtual assistant.

Smart Locks

When you have smart doors in your house, a smart lock will definitely be needed. You must have one to best fit the smart circuit.     It’s an electromechanical digitally operated lock designed to provide you locking and unlocking services for your house door. The device works via receiving signals from an authorized device using a wireless protocol and a programmed key to perform the door process.

Among the famous brands in the US are Shlage and Kwikset, readily available in different varieties at almost any famous online store. However, some great and cheaper Chinese variants are also very good like Yoheen and Wafu. We personally recommend Yoheen’s smart locks.

Smart Clocks

Yes, you read it right, it’s a smart clock, not smartwatch which is a story of old days now. Smart clocks are capable of providing you the details of calendar, events, time, weathers, and IFTTT alerts. Glance and Echo are famous brands offering you different app versions, available at both Google play store and iOS store available in the US and there are many amazing brands you can find on Aliexpress from China as well, including some clocks that even have spy-cameras so you can watch your baby or spy on your nanny without her knowing.

The Best Gas Cooktops of 2020

Gas cooktops remain a popular option for home kitchens: They heat instantly, allow for immediate and direct adjustment to heat levels, and are very cheap to use. It’s no surprise if you prefer to use a gas stovetop — but picking out the right one may prove challenging with all the choices on the market.

To help you find the best cooktop option around, we have picked several of the best options available, starting with a particularly durable Bosch 30-inch model. However, we also chose a number of other great options at various price points, so be sure to take a look at the full list.

Bosch 30-inch NGMP056UCGas Cooktops

Bosch is well known for its high-quality cooktops, and this gas model is highly durable, with a minimalistic grating over its five burners that provides all the support you need while still being easy to clean. But just because the cooktop looks simple doesn’t mean it foregoes advanced features. In fact, Bosch has equipped this model with a number of useful features for those who prefer gas: An electronic re-ignition sequence will re-light any burner that suddenly goes out, and each burner is marked by a subtle red LED light to let you know if it’s on or off. One of the burners is a particularly powerful 20,000 BTU model that lets you choose between extra-fast boiling or low simmering that won’t scorch your more delicate creations.

Frigidaire 30-inch FPGC3077RS

Frigidaire is another brand well-known for its long-lasting kitchen appliances. This 5-burner gas cooktop combines great quality with a more reasonable price tag than some of the other top-line cooktops on the market. The no-nonsense knobs are particularly sturdy, and the continuous cast iron grate, while heavy, does a great job of supporting any size of pot or pan, no matter where you want to put it. Burners range from 9,500 BTUs to a powerful center burner rated at 18,200 BTUs, excellent for quick boiling.

GE 30-inch PGP9830DJBB

Gas Cooktops1

While gas cooktops tend to look more or less the same (stainless steel and iron grating are the first choice for most brands), this GE model quickly stands out with its more unique design choices. Note the powerful fan in the middle, an important consideration for those without an overhead fan, and a powerful venting feature that can move up to 330cfm of air directly from around the burners to diminish smells and smoke. The four burners range from 5,500 to 11,500 BTUs, not as powerful as some of our other choices and without a fast-boil option but suitable for more casual kitchen spaces. If you need on-oven venting, this is one of the best choices!

Thermador 36-inch SGSX365TS

Thermador’s very powerful gas cooktop offers 58,400 BTUs in total, with a high-powered burner that can output up to 16,000 BTUs for fas heating. However, it also offers two small simmer burners if you want more low heat, which five incremental adjustments you can make to keep foods warm or lightly cooking. There’s also a re-ignition feature that automatically reignites burners if the flame goes out, and indicator lights for all burners. The grates are particularly minimalistic for this model while allowing full access to the burners — which are themselves sealed to prevent any spills from reaching the flames themselves. There’s also a 30-inch version of this model available for smaller ovens.

Samsung 30-inch NA30N6555TS

Samsung’s five-burner model comes with a griddle you can switch in for larger cooking projects — and a whole lot of style. We are particular fans of the large, weighty knobs, which are widely spaced out and backlit with blue LEDs so you can tell which burns are active at a glance. The three-piece grate is easy to use and clean, and the burners range from 5,000 to 19,000 BTUs depending on what kind of heating you want. Since this is Samsung, we were also not surprised to see Wi-Fi connectivity built into this cooktop: You can monitor and control the burners and heat via an app, wherever you are!

Empava 30-inch 30GC5B70C

Those $1,000 to $2,000 burners are fine, but maybe you’re looking for a much more cost-efficient option to save money. This Empava cooktop is extremely affordable, and you still get cast iron grating, stainless steel design, and heating options up to 12,000 BTUs. There’s also a continuous grate, rare on a cooktop at such a low price, to help make cleaning and the moving of pans around easier. There aren’t a lot of extra features available, but there are safety sensors that will automatically shut off a burner if they detect a heating problem. The knobs are made of coated stainless steel.

iPhone 11: To Upgrade or Not, That’s the Question

Early reviews on the new iPhone models are appearing, and for owners of older versions of Apple’s flagship mobile, an upgrade may be in order.Reviewers had plenty of praise for Apple’s more expensive iPhone models — the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max come in midnight green, space gray, silver and gold. However, it was the baseline iPhone 11 that came out the clear winner in the kudos game. “This is one of the simplest reviews I’ve ever had to write: the iPhone 11 is the phone most people who are upgrading to a new iPhone this year should get,” wrote Nilay Patel for The Verge. “It’s an excellent phone, with one of the best cameras I’ve ever seen on a smartphone and terrific battery life.”

Although the iPhone 11 is the lowest-priced of the three new models, Apple didn’t skimp on the device.

“The iPhone 11 takes almost everything that makes the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max special and squeezes it down into a package that’s $50 less than last year’s cheap model,” Chris Velazco wrote for Engadget.

“It’s probably not worth buying if you have an iPhone XR or XS, but for everyone else, it’s the easiest way to get a taste of modern flagship iPhone performance without dropping $1,000,” he added.

“If you can manage to wade your way through the mucky waters of Apple marketing terminology and distinguish what it is from what it’s being positioned as, you too will find that the iPhone 11 is a very good phone,” observed Lauren Goode, writing for Wired.

iPhone 11

Solid Performing Camera

Reviewers found the 11’s camera to be a solid performer.

“It’s super fast at locking onto your subjects, and you’ll find plenty of rich colors and detail in your photos,” Engadget’s Velazco wrote. “Low-light performance is impressive too, thanks largely to its optical-image stabilization and a wide f/1.8 aperture.”

“Ultimately, the iPhone 11 Pros offer a better camera experience because that third telephoto sensor gives them more flexibility,” he added. “The standard iPhone 11 gets very close, though, and I don’t think the average user will feel like they’re missing out.”

The 11’s low light performance is aided by a new Night mode, which is a “killer feature,” wrote Edward C. Baig in his review for USA Today.

“As the name of the feature suggests, Night mode lets you capture great — or, in my experience, at least perfectly acceptable — photos in dim light, without having to fire up a flash,” he noted. “I appreciate that using machine learning, Night mode kicks in automatically; you don’t have to make a calculated decision of when to turn it on. It also determines whether shooting with a flash is a better option.”

Pixel Killer?

Night mode produces superior pictures compared to Google’s Pixel phone cameras, The Verge‘s Patel also noted.

“The iPhone 11 captures the right light and detail so much better than the Pixel, and the Pixel often looks unnatural by making things much brighter than reality,” he wrote.

“Apple’s camera either matches or exceeds what was in Google’s latest Pixel model and Samsung’s Galaxy 10 and 10 Note,” said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies, a technology advisory firm in Campbell, California.

iPhone 111

Further, “Apple’s new AI software tied to the three cameras in the iPhone 11 Pro and the Pro Max bring a new level of power to computational photography in a smartphone,” he told TechNewsWorld.

While the cameras in the new iPhone models may entice existing owners to upgrade, they may have less of a draw for the Android faithful.

“There are a lot of high-performing cameras out there, so I don’t believe Apple’s camera is blowing away the best of what the Android world can offer,” said Ross Rubin, principal analyst at Reticle Research, a consumer technology advisory firm in New York City.

“It’s unlikely Apple will win over many Android users just based on the iPhone’s photography capabilities,” he told TechNewsWorld.

There may be a simple reason for that, according to Frank E. Gillett, principal analyst at Forrester Research, a market research company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“All the feature comparisons about the phones is a bunch of crap,” he told TechNewsWorld. “What really matters is what ecosystem you’re plugged into. That comes first and features second.”

Impressive Video

Reviewers also praised the iPhone 11 line’s video prowess.

Patel was “extremely impressed” with the 11 Pro Max’s capabilities.

“All three cameras can take 4K60 now, and if you record in anything less than 60 frames per second, you can switch between the wide and ultra-wide lenses with no color shifts or exposure changes, which is impressive,” he wrote.

“The only Android phones that compete with Apple in video are from Samsung, but Apple’s still ahead, and the gap is getting wider,” he continued.

“The iPhone 11 might not be quite as good at stabilizing your videos as a Galaxy S10 shooting in super-steady mode, but it’s more than good enough to make sure no one watching the resulting video gets motion sickness,” noted Engadget’s Velazco.

The iPhone 11 also has a feature called “extended dynamic range.” It captures extra frames while shooting and uses them to enhance the quality of the video.

“The videos I took of my still-disinterested cat on the iPhone 11 look more appealing, with deeper colors and an undeniable crispness, than the videos captured with older iPhones,” Wired‘s Goode wrote.

Good Battery Life

The battery life of the iPhone 11 garnered laudatory remarks from reviewers, while the display received mixed reviews.

“It’s possible you could manage to kill this battery in less than a day, but you’d have to really try,” wrote Patel.

“The XR gave me the best battery life of any iPhone I had ever tested last year, and the 11 manages to beat it, if only just,” Velasco noted. “I routinely managed to use the XR for 16 hours before needing to charge it again while the 11 lasted closer to 17 hours on average.”

Patel was critical of the 11’s display compared to its bigger brothers.

“This is a 326-dpi 720p LCD, and it looks like one,” he wrote. “It simply doesn’t have the deep blacks of an OLED display,”

Users upgrading from an iPhone with an LCD display won’t notice much difference, according to Goode, “but after using a phone with an OLED display for several months and then switching to the iPhone 11, the LCD just doesn’t look as nice. It feels harsher on the eyes, and media looks different on it.”

Price Is Right

Apple received a pat on the back for its pricing.

“Putting the baseline iPhone at $699 brings pricing back to the level it was at when the iPhone had some of its greatest growth,” Reticle’s Rubin said. “This won’t restore that level of growth, but it should entice folks who haven’t upgraded in awhile.”

Apple needed to be extremely careful about its pricing because of consumer smartphone pricing fatigue, observed David McQueen, research director at ABI Research, a technology advisory company headquartered in Oyster Bay, New York.

“It is mostly for this reason that the thrust of the iPhone launch was actually for its TV, music and gaming services, which it sees as a major revenue generator as device sales start to tail off,” he told TechNewsWorld.

The question remains: Will the new iPhones set off a virtuous upgrade cycle for Apple?

“iPhone 8 and earlier users have a significantly different device in front of them when they look at iPhone 11,” said Gerrit Schneemann, senior analyst at IHS Markit, a research, analysis and advisory firm headquartered in London.

“These are the users Apple must address to stop the downward trend the company is on, in terms of unit shipments,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Smartphone innovation has slowed down because smartphones have gotten so good, observed Forrester’s Gillett.

“That means the idea that you should wait to upgrade your phone until there’s a significant feature you really care about makes a lot of sense, regardless of what ecosystem you’re in,” he said.

“The challenge for all vendors is to deliver a product that motivates buyers to replace their current device as quickly as they’ve done in the past,” said Tuong Nguyen, senior principal analyst at Gartner, a research and advisory company based in Stamford, Connecticut.

“In that sense,” he told TechNewsWorld, “I don’t think iPhone 11 is compelling enough to hasten that replacement.”

5 Technology Trends To Change Retail Industry In 2020

Retail Industry Technology is widely adopted by retail companies with the quite obvious purposes of overtaking less advanced competitors, gaining new customers, and eventually increasing revenues. Just like technology, retail remains a shifting landscape. In particular, the emphasis on digital transformation continues to reshape shopping, online experiences and even customer expectations of physical stores. The retailers who thrive in this environment are the ones who embrace technological change. Let’s take a closer look at 7 tech trends that will affect the retail sphere over the next few years.

Retail Industry

 

Trend #1: Augmented shopping

A report from Gartner indicates that 100 million consumers are expected to engage in a shopping experience that employs augmented reality. AR has been around a while, but the maturation of the technology—particularly on mobile platforms—has put AR systems in the hands of everyday retail customers.

A number of retailers are embracing the trend. Lacoste, American Apparel and Uniqlo have opened virtual showrooms and fitting rooms to allow customers to try products in virtual spaces. Zara has deployed smart mirrors that read RFID tags on clothes that have been pulled from racks to provide suggestions in a fashion closer to what consumers see from online stores rather than brick-and-mortar locations. Ikea is using an ARKit-based app to encourage customers to visualize what new furniture will look like in a room while moving their phone cameras around in real time.

71% of respondents in a report from 2016 stated they’d be more interested in shopping with a retailer that provided AR-based try-before-you-buy options. By making these experiences more engaging for customers, retailers can create a lure that’ll bring customers back into the brick-and-mortar setting.

Leveraging AR technology to provide visitors with enhanced indoor navigation experience is the next step to building brand loyalty. Wayfinding mobile apps help customers not to get lost and can even lead them to a certain product in a store. Augmented Reality-based indoor navigation is capable to remove shortcomings of beacon-based solutions and provide more accurate user positioning.

Trend #2: Personalized interactions with customers

The big technologies behind personalization are data science and machine learning, which allow retailers to anticipate customer needs before they know what they want themselves.

A McKinsey & Company report indicated that 36% of US companies confirmed having an edge carved out using analytics. Done right, these systems can provide rapid recommendations that speed the buying experience along.

Developing opt-in for data collection is a big part of this process. Rather than just hassling consumers to download an app that many of them will delete once they get the deal they want, incentives have to follow consumer wants and needs. This calls for developing robust shopping profiles, allowing machine learning methods to drill down through information about similar customers. Calls to action can then be tailored to specific users, such as Macy’s has done with its style preference system.

In-store options are catching up to online and app-based ones quickly. A major driver of this advancement is Bluetooth Low Energy and RFID, allowing low-power consumption solutions to be deployed throughout stores. FashionAI, a technology built by Alibaba Group, generates personalized mix-and-match apparel recommendations for shoppers as they move around stores. They can then quickly find items that will fit their tastes.

According to Amazon, 35% of its sales are driven by its recommendation engine. Using AI, these kinds of recommendation systems can be refined in cyberspace and deployed widely in real-world settings.

And of course, we shouldn’t forget about NLP-driven chatbots that get ever smarter and deliver personalized experiences. Even outside the retail sphere, chatbots are expected to be the biggest word in customer service, offering deals and recommendations, providing easy navigation and tracking orders.

Trend #3: Omnichannel retail to deliver seamless shopping experiences

The new age of omnichannel marketing means that customers expect a seamless experience across all channels. They see items on websites, visit stores, whip out their phones and start looking for help. They visit a store, see an item, save it to their phone, go home and want it delivered. They stay online, purchase and expect pickup in the store.

In other words, none of the channels are distinct or meaningful to them. Look at the role mobile-based visual search plays in customers making buying decisions. Pinterest Lens lets a user pull out their phone, snap a picture and find related pins on the platform in a matter of seconds. The platform has experienced 100% year-to-year growth, indicating interest in visual search is there when there’s an app that can do it well.

This also means that other seamless omnichannel interactions are open for use. People are happy to click online and collect items in the store. According to a report from the National Retail Federation, 89 million customers use a combination of online and in-store shopping over the post-Thanksgiving runup for the holiday shopping season. Especially enticing for retailers is the report that omnichannel users spent $93 more than average customers.

Tech innovation finds its way everywhere. For example, the concept of “buy online, pick up in-store” (BOPIS) may seem nothing new for the retail sphere. However, it is close to entering the mass market, with several top retailers having adopted and refined the approach. For example, Walmart, having installed pick-up towers to its stores, employed supporting innovations like driverless vehicles for customers.

Trend #4: Staff-free and cashier-less stores

Freeing staff members up from menial and time-consuming tasks is an important part of re-imagining the retail landscape in the coming years. The tools that will allow this digital transformation include RFID tags, computer vision systems, machine learning, IoT devices and facial recognition.

One of the most promising concepts in this area is the cashier-less Amazon Go store chain. Despite being not completely staff-free, it still allows smartphone-wielding customers to shop quickly, without time-consuming lines and checkouts. Vendors in the merchant terminal industry are also getting onboard, with Mastercard showing off unmanned checkout technologies for use in convenience stores. Using smart shelves, sensors can be utilized to tie physical products to a customer’s virtual shopping cart. IoT-based systems can then identify when they and the items exit the store, at which point the sale is registered to their credit card.

In 2017, KFC experimented with face recognition software that was tied to predictive systems. The fast food choices of customers were remembered, and sales were sped up in the process.

Self-ordering kiosks are also a trend worth watching. CaliBurger introduced a system in 2018 that recognizes faces and streamlines the ordering process. Loyalty programs and rewards can also be constructed around these technologies, reducing the steps that go into swiping a card in order to get perks.

Trend #5: Voice-enabled shopping to reduce the sales cycle

Voice-based search has taken off in recent years, especially as a function on app-enabled smartphones and television sets. The logic is extremely straightforward. A person can speak 100 words a minute relatively easily, but they can only type half as many over the same time.

The boom in voice-activated systems has largely been driven by companies like Amazon and Google with their Alexa and Google Home products, respectively. A handful of competitors, especially Sonos and Apple, are also driving innovation. The ever evolving IoT technologies will also help smaller competitors to enter the market. According to a survey by NPR and Edison Research, 53 million Americans now have at least a single smart speaker system at home.

Integrating voice into any device is easy thanks to the advent of the Amazon Voice Service. You can expect to see many products that will bear the label “Alexa-enabled” in the near future. This idea found its way to the Internet of Things products like smart mirrors, which deliver varied content in an engaging manner.

There are three net effects that can be gained from voice-enabled retail shopping. The first is the speed and personalization that can be attained. Second, customer loyalty can be encouraged by making things like tracking packages as simple as uttering the question, “Where’s my package?” Third, voice-based systems can be excellent enabling technologies for products like AR/MR headsets, connected automobiles, and smart homes.

Societal adoption remains the strongest headwind against voice technologies. There are continuing security concerns, and access to systems is a worry, too. In particular, parental controls need to be dependable enough that families are happy to leave speakers sitting around their houses.
