What’s a Wall Tablet and Why Do I Need one?


    If you grew up watching Disney
    Channel in the late 90s to the early 2000s, you may remember a DCOM named Smart
    House. In the movie, a boy wins a smart house for his family with an AI. 

    The AI was able to control all
    aspects of the house, from cleaning, house temperature, water temperature, cooking, along with many other features.

    Technology has not caught up to that
    of the house in Smart House, but we do have tech that aims to turn your home
    into a smart home. A wall tablet can be the central hub of your smart home,
    with the capability of controlling all of its aspects.

    home automation and how a wall tablet can help you.

    Is a Wall Tablet?

    A wall tablet can either be a tablet
    you already own, like an iPad, or a touch screen whose sole purpose is to
    control your smart home. 

    A tablet will cost less money, but
    it doesn’t have the optimization that a touch screen does. You can get a tablet
    wall mount, but if you plan to use it for streaming, games, or other things, it
    won’t stay in that location permanently. 

    That means that you may have to
    search for it if you need to access the hub for your home.

     have pros and cons, depending on the type you decide to use.
    The one real con of the integrated touch screen, however, is the price.


    Below are some of the features
    available when you use a wall tablet with your smart home.


    With your tablet, you can arm your
    security system and even lock your doors if you have a smart lock. 

    One of the other great security
    features this offers is the video doorbell. When someone gets within a certain
    range of your door, a camera by your door will allow you to see who is there
    through your tablet. 

    You can even talk to them via the
    camera so you don’t have to open the door.

    Your Thermostat

    With a smart thermostat and your
    tablet, you can control the temperature of your home no matter where you are.
    You can even adjust the temperature if you aren’t at home.

    For example, if you are on your way
    home in the winter and want to turn up the heat, you can do that from your

    Smart thermostats can also
    save you money
    . They have the ability to learn your schedule and adjust the
    temperature as needed. Some systems can even detect room occupancy levels and
    adjust temperature levels.

    Your Lights

    With smart lights, there are plenty
    of things that you can do with lighting home, besides turning them on and off.
    Smart bulbs are LEDs, so they consume less energy than incandescent

    Smart lights also have motion
    sensors, which will light up once they detect that someone enters a room. From
    your tablet, you can also adjust the brightness of your lights.

    You can even set mood lighting if
    you’re looking to have a romantic evening.

    Some smart bulbs also allow you to
    change their color, which means you can liven up your home for guests and when
    you have parties.


    One of the best features of a wall
    tablet is the ability to control your entertainment center. You can turn on
    your TV, change the channel, record your favorite shows, and so much more.

    Beyond your TV, you can also control
    your stereo system and select a song or playlist to play. You can also control
    game systems with your tablet, affording you total control of the devices that
    provide you and your family with entertainment. 

    Another boon for parents is that you
    can set restrictions and timers for your kids, so they don’t access anything
    they shouldn’t or spend all day on these devices.

    Laundry Day

    With your tablet and a smart
    washer/dryer, laundry is the easiest its ever been. First, the washer and dryer
    will ping your tablet when a load is finished with its cycle. 

    You can also make changes to the
    washer and dryer from your tablet.

    One of the best features that some
    smart washer/dryers have is the ability to sense if you are in the house via
    your phone. If you have to run out while your washer is on, it will continue to
    lightly tumble the clothes so they don’t sit, wet.

    Once you return home, it will stop
    since you can extract your clothes.


    There are many smart appliances you
    can employ in your kitchen to revolutionize the way you cook. 

    With a smart scale, you can weigh
    your food, and if you are tracking your nutrition, you can log these numbers
    through your tablet. With a smart oven, you can preheat it from your tablet or
    phone, if you are on the way home.

    There are also some grills and
    pressure cookers that you can control through your table as well.

    Roomba or RoboVac to take care of cleaning your floors for you. Through your
