What Is Smart Home Technology?
In general terms, it’s a home that’s equipped with smart devices to automate and control household systems such as thermostats, lighting, security cameras, and more. The benefits of a smart home include everything from saving energy and money to increasing security and convenience.
Smart home devices can be managed remotely through an app on your smartphone or computer, with many also responding to voice commands using digital assistants like Alexa. Smart devices often communicate with one another through protocols like Z-Wave and ZigBee to create a home automation network.
Is the smart home system complicated to use?
Not at all. Yes your home or business will be high-tech but your life will be streamlined and more secure. Everything is controlled from a wall-mounted keypad, hand-held remote, tablet or smartphone, all labeled with the tasks each can accomplish with the touch of your finger.
