Apple Patents Home Automation Technology

I came across an article that I was puzzled by at first, and as I read it I thought “This sounds like really cool technology”. Just when you thought Apple couldn’t up their game with a new kind of product, they seem to be heading in that direction...


Apple has decided to join the dark side per say and patent a home automation system that can work based on your location.

The article states “The elaborate setup would make it possible for Apple to use location data fed from things like your iPhone and iPad, as well as use of credit cards or RFID badges to inform automated systems of a user’s whereabouts, and do things like turn on or off power, climate control, lights and more.” Though this sounds extremely cool, I couldn’t help but think that this kept reminding me of how our society is always being tracked and this would just be another tracker.

“It’s a little more complex than simple geo-fencing, however. The patent describes an information-gathering system that would be able to incorporate not only where a user is and where they’re going, but also what activities they’re engaging in along the way. This would make their location predictions more accurate, since they could include estimates about when exactly someone will arrive.” I think this quote makes my last statement seem pretty valid.

Though the actual technology has not been set into motion yet, it seems like Apple is moving into our homes in a whole new way. It could be years until this known and loved company starts building this system. Who knows, maybe in 10 years there be actual Apple houses with this home automation technology, with iCouches, iBeds, iTvs, iPools, and iKitchens.

What do you think about this new system?
