Smart home technology creates buzz (again) at 2012 International Consumer Electronic Show

The 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas wraps up today after a frenzied week of new product releases, technology presentations and swirling rumors.

Last year, smart home technology was all the rage at CES as companies like LG, Kenmore and Panasonic introduced appliances that work harmoniously within a connected ecosystem. Smart home tech promises improved performance and energy efficiency as homeowners can control functionality through mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of futuristic movies venturing to guess what the home of the future looks like. It appears smart home tech is it. If you’ve got 15 minutes this weekend, just watch this LG presentation from CES to get a sense of what’s possible from smart home tech.

Hopefully, it won’t be long before these technologies go mainstream.
