Smart Home Tech Trends to Watch in 2020

by Ronald Elias

1. 5G

2020 won’t be the first year that 5G makes headlines, but it may just be the year where it starts making headlines that count. Some cities are already seeing 5G expansion, but it’s been a strategically narrow rollout so far.

There’s a lot that could be improved for all of your smart home devices to communicate better, and if 5G manages to do that it could be a game changer.

2. Where There's Smoke 

The best smart home technology makes your life easier, simpler, and relieves something you’d normally have to worry about.

That’s exactly what smart smoke/carbon monoxide alarms do for you. It can alert you when the alarm goes off -- even if you aren’t home -- giving you peace of mind that no matter where you are your family, pets, and house are being monitored. 

3. Riding the (Micro)wave

We don’t cover smart appliances that often here, but we are sure you are all up to speed on the many different smart appliances that can make your kitchen and laundry just as much fun as your entertainment center. 

One thing that you might want to keep an eye out for in 2020: Smart microwaves. Amazon already has one, so you can expect that other companies won’t be far behind.

4. The DIY Stuffs


There are a lot of turnkey solutions for smart products, and some people like the feeling of being able to do cool projects by themselves! It seems likely more and more of these products will continue to hit shelves as the market keeps growing.

Of course, DIYing stuff yourself can be fine for smaller projects, but wouldn’t it be easier to just have a professional come in and take care of the really cool stuff? We think so!


5. To the Future, and Beyond

Smart technology -- and its integration into your home -- is just getting started. Adoption rates are only expected to increase, and as more and more homes use the technology, you can expect the future to really explode with possibilities.

Like what? How about a smart wardrobe that organizes and helps you pick out outfits? Smart sofas that can adjust to your personal comfort needs? The sky’s the limit!


Are you ready for 2020? Well, it doesn’t matter, it’s here, and a whole swathe of new technology is coming along for the ride. Keep your eyes -- and browser -- peeled right here to stay on top of the latest in smart home tech throughout the year!
