Every year, the newest technological advancements are showcased by leading companies at the famous Consumer Electronics Show. Known as the Global Stage for Innovation, the CES is the long-awaited platform where the year’s best new gadgets are displayed for the world to see. 

This includes the latest smart home upgrades. Tech-based living is the new big thing, and luxury homebuyers are eager to implement the most recent tools taking the world by storm. The high-end home market is being shaped by technology’s extensive influence, enhancing everything from doorbells to AC units. 

Let’s look at the most impressive recent innovations of the smart home industry. Here are the top five most anticipated technological trends for 2019 and beyond.

Smart Lighting 

Traditional light fixtures just don’t cut it anymore--smart lighting is one of the most desired amenities for luxury shoppers. Their proficiency in setting the perfect mood allows users to totally customize their environment and cultivate the ideal atmosphere for any situation. 

This tech-savvy lighting system is taking over both indoor and outdoor illumination devices. The new Philips Hue Econic family is a set of outdoor wall-mounting fixtures perfect for porches. Modeled in various shapes and sizes, they are conveniently motion sensing. Plus, users can choose from 16 million color variations. 

Smart Clocks 

Waking up will never be the same. A new line of smart devices was announced this year by Google, and the first of these state-of-the-art clocks was created by Lenovo. The smart clock’s ultra sleek design is a miniature version of a Google Smart Display, so you have access to the time, weather, and anything else you’d need to know from the warmth and comfort of your bed. 

Smart Artwork 

Thanks to the new Meural Canvas 3.0, Luxury homeowners now have the perfect place to display their magnificent art collection. This digital platform is a picture frame that utilizes a matte screen to amplify the artwork’s true essence. 

This smart frame obtains a natural look by automatically adjusting to the brightness of the room. This upgraded edition features new sizes, varying frame designs, and other key improvements. 

Smart Security Systems 

Safety is one of the main motivations for luxury homeowners to go smart. Arlo’s new security system is highly sought after, with its highlighting features such as motion detection, carbon monoxide and smoke detection, temperature changes, and window or door monitoring. 

This security system can also work with other Arlo products, such as their esteemed collection of security cameras. If an opening door is detected, the nearest camera will automatically start recording. 

Smart Locks 

Keys are becoming a thing of the past as more and more luxury homeowners are choosing to utilize new key-free options. Yale’s new Assure Lever Lock is the company’s first non-deadbolt option, so it works great for single-hole doors. The smart lock is touchscreen and works using a customizable keypad code.
