At Closet Tec, we are constantly “taking the pulse” of the home improvement industry. I have a background in high technology so I often get excited when I see developments on the technological front. Although the idea of the smart home appliance is not one that is new to the industry, when a major technology player invests serious dollars, people take notice. Recently, Google invested $3.2 BILLION dollars in a company called Nest. Nest has taken the concept of the smart home appliance to a new level.

Furthermore, imagine having a smart appliance that can learn and adapt to your habits.
Will this be the next big revolution? Some people are betting on it!!
