Imagine this: after a long day of work your autonomous electric vehicle pulls into your garage. The new mat you installed on your garage floor wirelessly powers your car with the energy produced from your solar shingles — no more plugging in or having to fill your car's tank.

You head to your back door, and you hear a click — no more fumbling with your keys, your door knows who you are, so the lock releases and you step right in.

As you walk from room to room and into your kitchen, lights turn on and off as your phone communicates with the bulbs as to where you are. You ask your refrigerator to place an order for dinner from the new Thai place down the street. It knows you like to eat around 6pm and has it to your "dronebox" just in time for you to sit down for dinner.

This likely isn't a reality for many homeowners in 2017, but already, smart home devices are changing the way we use our homes. Hear from our panel of experts on how Smart Home Devices and the Internet of Things will change our lives in the very near future.
