The Internet of Things is a reality, and more than anything, consumers are going to be the beneficiaries of this technology. The internet has enabled the ability for consumers to control their own lives, and the internet of things will only continue to get better.
As we see more and more products come to market that enable us to do everything online, we will see more and more technology that can control and automate our lives, too. This isn’t necessarily bad. Rather, it’s good because it will keep us (and our devices) more connected. The connected world will only get better.
One of the biggest advantages of the internet is that it has empowered consumers to control our devices, which is why we’re going to see a lot of connected things in the future. This includes things like smart TVs and appliances, home automation, and even home health care. In fact, the internet is already giving us the ability to control our food and water.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of my refrigerator going “buzz” when I make a meal, and I don’t want to have to look up to my microwave to see if it’s cooking. The solution is called fintech automation, which is the use of the internet to automate many of the mundane tasks that we do every day.
With fintech automation, you can tell your refrigerator to look up the temperature in the fridge if it is out of range, and then automatically add the right amount of water to the right serving that you need. It’s not exactly as glamorous as a smart TV or a smart stove or something, but it’s a step towards creating a world where most of our home tasks will be automated.
The first step is just to think about how much your home can automate. For example, you can only add fresh herbs to the kitchen if you have a digital scale. Even those who have a scale still need to manually check the weight each time they add a new ingredient to the recipes they use.
This is where fintech automation comes in. It’s a simple concept that is quickly gaining traction. If I can get a digital scale that only requires a few button presses to add a new ingredient, I can figure out how much water to the correct serving and figure out when a certain ingredient is needed. This is similar to how our plumbing systems work.
The digital scale that you can buy today can be programmed to take a few minutes and it is so accurate and flexible that it can be used for every recipe in the house. That’s why we have more than one digital scale in our house.
I like to think of it as automation without a lot of extra bells and whistles. I mean, the digital scales are very accurate and very flexible, but they have a lot of bells and whistles built into them. For example, they have a feature that lets you see the weight of any ingredient that you add into a recipe.
Technically, digital scales are not scales. They are a measuring tool like a yardstick. But if you want to be really precise, digital scales are not just precision measuring tools but also include digital scales. For example, the digital scale in our kitchen counter used to have an accuracy of 0.01 to 0.1 lb (0.1 to 1.0 g). But it was also very flexible, so you could set the scale to 0.9 to 1.
