SMS messaging is used by the majority of the world’s population and for good reasons. SMS messages can span different carriers. Messages can be quickly sent and received. And now with companies using AI-backed SMS message technologies, people can text companies to get immediate responses to request and inquiries. But the powers of SMS messaging do not stop there.
People can also use SMS messages to interact with other smart devices.
Texting Within a Smart Home
Smart homes and appliances now have the ability to receive and send SMS messages. One example is a smart thermostat. You can send an SMS message to your thermostat to request an increase or decrease in the set temperature. And since SMS messages do not require a wireless internet connection or an installed app, you can even control the temperature of your home from anywhere you go. Imagine that you just left on vacation and are an hour away from your house. You forgot to turn off the air conditioner so now the air conditioner will be running the entire week that you will be gone. You can text the thermostat to turn off the air conditioner.
The Potential for SMS Messaging
The potential for smart appliances and SMS messaging is expansive. Imagine being able to send a text message to set the alarm system or receive a report of what is in your fridge. Because SMS messaging is so versatile, it sets up the potential for unlimited use and growth.
Whether you need to send a text message to a friend or message a question to a company, SMS messaging is a great tool for communication. AI-backed SMS messaging services allow companies to expand their customer service and marketing tools. The versatility and potential of SMS messaging is endless.
