What is a Smart Home?

 

A smart home is a convenient way to connect many devices in your home and set them up for control from a remote device. This setup is commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).  These devices are most commonly connected to the internet allowing control from a remote location and integration with multiple types and brands of things.  This can allow for control of security access, temperature, lighting, sound, cameras, and home theatre setup.  The types of devices available for programming and integration are increasing every day. 

How does it work?

A central device phone, tablet, or console is used to access each system with a device specific or integrated control application.  Then once connected via a wired, wireless, or mobile network and placed online the user has access to control many devices from a single point.  Additionally, devices compatible with various platforms can integrate devices and commands which can allow for the simple control out to the complex instruction and multilayer controls depending on the user’s preference.
