For many years now, future tech in movies has almost been a prescient to what we’re putting in our homes today. Here are four examples of smart homes in the movies.
Tony Stark’s AI virtual assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. is the ultimate voice-automated flatmate who not only guards Stark’s mansion and Tower but also operates everything within, including opening blinds and providing morning surf reports.

Back to the Future: Part II
The McFly’s home of the future covers plenty of smart home features we could easily adapt to our homes with existing tech, including thumbprint locks, cameras on the front door, video calls and voice controlled TV.
