Wherever we go, we’re surrounded by smart devices. Whether it’s the latest smartphone with a digital assistant in tow, a smart TV that allows you to stream from Netflix and Hulu, or smart appliances that can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world, smart devices and smart technology are everywhere. In fact, one-fourth of US households have smart home devices, with an average of seven per household, and one-third have smart home services.

These devices are coming together in something called digital centralization, which is a way of saying that they’re converging to form a convenient way of managing everything. In other words, we’re embracing technology and digital centralization for a smarter way of living.

How Digital Centralization is Creating a Smarter Living

Digital centralization is creating a smarter living by virtue of seamlessly connecting our devices so they work in sync, allowing us to manage everything with as few devices as possible. For example, take a look at the following scenario:

You leave your home in the morning, maybe going to the movies, a coffee shop, the grocery shop, anywhere
You’re pretty scatterbrained, so you fall prey to the belief that you left your front door unlocked
You pull out your smartphone, check your smart lock app and find that you did indeed leave the front door unlocked
You remotely lock your door and go back to your day
As your day winds down and you head home, you notice that the temperature dropped and you start feeling pretty cold
You (again) pull out your smartphone, but instead of checking the status of your front door you open another app that controls the smart thermostat in your apartment
You turn on your heater and head home with a smile because you know that you’ll come home to a warm home

As we can see, smart technology and digital centralization are coming together to create smart devices that are paving the path for the smart home. And it’s not just about comfort, as we saw with the smart lock, it’s about peace of mind. For example, if you’re on vacation in another city, state, country, or even continent, you always have peace of mind with a smart security system that alerts you when something’s amiss. Apart from alerts, you can also check in with cameras installed in and around your home, and if you worry about burglars taking advantage of your empty house, you can remotely turn your lights on or off to create the illusion that someone’s home.

Apart from smarter living, smart technology is also creating a smarter workplace by allowing us to work from home, something that in many cases leads to increased productivity. For example, with our smartphones and tablets we can:
Call anyone from around the world
Video conference with anyone
Schedule virtual meetings
Respond to emails
Do anything that is usually done in an office space

Apart from that, from the very beginning of the day, no time is lost commuting to work. You can start working as soon as you get out of bed. In a similar vein, you have your kitchen right there, meaning that you don’t have to go out to buy food.

Final Thoughts and TL;DR

Smart technology creates smart devices, which in turn come together to create the smart home with the use of digital centralization, and the end result is a smarter way of living and working. Here’s the Tl;dr version of what we covered today:
Whether it’s a smartphone, a smart TV, or smart appliances, smart devices are everywhere
These devices are coming together in something called digital centralization, meaning that they’re coming together to form a convenient way of managing everything
It’s creating a smarter living by virtue of seamlessly connecting our devices so they work in sync
Apart from smarter living, smart technology is also creating a smarter workplace by allowing us to work from home
For example, smartphones and tablets allow us to perform the same tasks we would otherwise perform in an office
Enjoy making use of digital centralization!
