You can already use your face to unlock your phone—what about unlocking all of the smart technology in your home?

Imagine entering a room and, without speaking a command or touching a button, the lights automatically dim or brighten, the temperature adjusts, window treatments lower, and your favorite Spotify playlist comes on. Facial recognition intelligence in your security camera or smart display has learned your jawline, eye depth, and the shape of your cheekbones. Once connected to your specific preferences, it reads these defining characteristics in an instant and communicates with your smart home to launch your tailored choices. In other words, your home recognizes you and reacts to your unique lifestyle.

An Increasingly Intuitive, Personalized Home

Your home can greet you by name at the front door, unlocking it so you don’t have to worry about juggling groceries or your child while searching for your keys. Missed messages, calendar events, commute times—the information you are used to receiving in a general way on your smart display—is delivered specifically for you. This rapidly evolving technology learns and stores multiple faces, with preferences set for each individual, so other users receive information unique to them. It can even recognize your cat’s face and portion out food for your fur baby.

An Increasingly Secure Home and Community

Of course, not only is facial recognition a key component of a more intuitive smart home, it’s an added step in home security. Cutting-edge technology lets you know who is at your door. If the person isn’t recognized by your system, you’ll get an alert and a picture. In this era of working from home, facial recognition allows you to verify guests or clients upon their arrival for safer, more secure business interactions.

When integrated into high-rise, condominium, and townhome communities, facial recognition scans passersby or delivery drivers to confirm who is on a pre-approved list and who is not. Because the process of recognizing a face is so fast, this technology verifies a person in incredibly efficient real-time. This is a true benefit for companies looking to increase security during an era of advanced hacking tools and cyber attacks.

An Increasingly Enhanced Lifestyle

Sleek designs and smart motion tracking mean your system can blend seamlessly into your home and life—and thanks to privacy switches, ensure it’s not blending too much. Cameras and audio can be turned off for extra privacy. And, unlike a password, it’s difficult to hack because facial features are unique.

With facial recognition technology, your smart devices adjust automatically, reacting to your presence and needs without waiting for commands. Get one step closer to an effortless home that works for you.

Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
