Living in the Future – Connecting Your Computer and Your Home

Living in the Future - Connecting Your Computer and Your HomeSome people spend so much time on their computers it seems like their life is spent almost entirely on the Internet. If you’re looking for a true connection between technology, your house and everything inside it, then read on. Let your Lenovo laptop take up some the slack in your life and unlock the true potential of your machines ability to work, rest and play.

Your television can be very receptive to technology. You can watch those downloaded movies on the largest screen in your house if you know how. For laptops often you’ll only need a HDMI cable and you’re good to go. If you’re looking for something more than a film on the TV every now and again then you might want to consider investing in a media center PC. This will store all of your downloaded movies and TV shows, play them in high quality and access Internet services such as Netflix, Hulu and Youtube. You’ll never have to worry about finding something on TV again.

Your computer could potentially be the centre of your home security. You can find a multitude of webcams that can be converted into a CCTV network (some even being activated by movement). There are some packages that can keep a constant eye out on your home, texting you with a picture if it senses movements. Staying on the subject of security and smartphones, the August Smart Lock, as seen here, will make you feel like you’re in the future.

It will detect you and other authorized phones and unlock itself for them and keep a detailed log of everyone who’s used the door, all without any keys or printouts. Other smart lock systems (yes, there’s more) include doorbells that text you pictures of your guests or even phone you to talk to them directly, choosing whether or not to let them in there and then.

Of course, you may want to spend time on your computer at home but find yourself away, perhaps at work or on a trip away. There is a solution, however – a remote desktop. Services such as Splashtop allow you to control your home computer from anywhere in the world so long as you have an Internet connection – a marvel of modern technology and fantastic for those occasions where you’ve forgotten an important document or if you just plain miss home.

Another strength of this service is that it adds a newfound power to tablet computers, enabling them to freely access your home computer and its hardware means that it can run programs beyond its potential. High end gaming and professional video editing can be available to you on your tablet wherever you go, so while it’s important to connect your home to your computer, it can be just as advantageous to connect your computer to your home when on the move.
