Not long ago, it seemed silly to think you could walk into your home and speak your lights on, turn up your air conditioning with a single command, or order pizza just by wishing it out loud.

Today, those distant dreams have moved into reality with smart home hubs loaded with voice-activated, artificially intelligent assistants waiting to make your wish their command.

Amazon claimed an early lead in this space with its wireless Echo speaker that houses the Alexa Assistant. Apple has been ramping up its Siri capabilities in its own HomeKit and recently released an app that lets users control all of their home devices from a single point. In addition, Google is vying to take over your living room with its Google Home hub and accompanying Google Assistant.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for artificial intelligence for your home:

  1. The "internet of things" is hitting mainstream status. It's safe to say it's here to stay.
  2. Not all devices work together. Make sure your home hub of choice will jive with the internet connected devices you already own.
  3. The "internet of things" is still a little shaky when it comes to security. Set unique and random passwords and use two-step authentication when you can.

Robotics/AI really is the serious "divide" of the 21st Century.   Home seekers are going to insist on smart houses.   What will this do to the character home market?   Hmm.....
