[Discussion] [Weekly Debate #14] Does Smart Home System Really Consume Too Much Power? Share Your Views!

Hello Mi Fans,

You're leaving work early one afternoon so you go online and adjust the thermostat to preheat your home. On your way to work the next morning, you forget to lock the house and turn off the lights but you pull out your smartphone and set the house to "away" – problem solved. Home control and automation products are gaining speed, enabling these types of scenarios in what marketers call the smart home.

Every day new always-connected gadgets arrive on the market and invade our homes. Whether we want it or not, our homes are turning into smart homes. But how much do these comforts weigh on your electricity bill?


The question may seem trivial, but there are a lot of variables to take into account. Are we talking about consumption at rest or during use of the equipment? And above all, what smart gadgets are we talking about? Smart speakers? Smart bulbs? There truly are a lot of variables. Over the last few decade we've seen a few major pushes around lowering our energy consumption. “Smart” home control devices promise to do many things, including helping households reduce their energy bills.

Devices such as “connected” lightbulbs and smart plugs let you operate or automate lights and other appliances from your smartphone. However, research suggests that these devices are not the “easy” answer to energy management. Households can use them in ways that increase energy use rather than reduce it, and that many people find them too complicated to get up and running.


Ultimately, whether a smart home is an energy-efficient home has more to do with the owner than the technology. Adjusting heating and cooling schedules and installing efficient appliances can reduce a great deal of wasted energy, but only when those features are activated. The danger is in assuming that lower power bills can come neatly packaged in a box – the reality, as always, is more complicated.
