Let’s get Connected!
Home is where the heart is and that was no different for Mobile World Congress’s (MWC) Connected City.
The connected home is looking like the next big technology revolution that will dramatically change many aspects of our daily lives. These connected services range from entertainment, home automation and security to healthcare and controlling energy use. The connected home will be a single environment where we’ll be able to keep control of the network, the devices and the data.
AT&T was showcasing their Digital Life at MWC. A self-service, self-monitored home security, automation and energy platform. It offers a turnkey solution that allows you stay connected using your smart device.
A lot of this technology is already available in the US.
Olenick & Associates has been leading the way in the energy vertical through our longstanding relationships with energy providers and most recently, our involvement in the BGE SmartGrid project that monitors SmartMeters for utilities.
The result is that as consumers we have more information and more choice, plus the flexibility to control appliances through smart-phone apps.
And coming to every well-connected bathroom – the new Oral B interactive electric toothbrush with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity!
The clever combo of Bluetooth connectivity and the Oral B app brings oral health right into the 21st century allowing you and dental professionals to program the app to create personalized brushing.
The electric toothbrush handle can store up to 20 brushing sessions, the data is then transferred the next time the app is connected to the toothbrush and updates your records.
The idea is that this will drive patient compliance which in turn determines a large part of the success of your dental appointments. The app also delivers news, weather and oral care tips to keep you informed and motivated as you brush. It will be brought to the German market in June and rolled out across the global after that.
