PostSubject: From self-cleaning toilets to digital showerheads, smart homes of the future on show at CES 2017 Be   Sat Jan 21, 2017 5:51 pm

Home automation is slowly but surely becoming an affordable way to deliver more energy-efficient homes that offer better security, comfort and healthcare. This year's CES showed where we can expect the tech to head in 2017, extending well beyond the range of internet-connected fridges that first popped up several years ago. Basically any device that is powered by electricity is now able to be controlled via a variety of home automation systems, and these ranged from the absolutely useful to the utterly useless.



Once again Amazon's Alexa system took centre stage, with most companies relying upon Amazon Echo as the central hub to control their devices. It's no wonder, considering over 5 million of these units had sold by the end of 2016. Sadly it's still not available Down Under –perhaps our Aussie twang is too hard to decipher for Amazon's powerful server farms. However, Apple's increasingly popular HomeKit smart system – based on its Siri voice technology – had a much stronger presence this year. Unfortunately Google's Home system didn't quite make the splash that many had expected, with fewer partners announcing support for the recently released electronic ecosystem.
