When you’re not home, nagging little doubts can start to crowd your mind. Did I turn the coffee maker off? Did I set the security alarm? Are the kids doing their homework or watching television? With a smart home, you could quiet all these worries with a quick glance at your smartphone or tablet. You could connect the devices and appliances in your home so they can communicate with each other and with you.
A smart home refers to a convenient home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere by the user. For example, controlling security access to the home, temperature, lighting, and a home theatre remotely. A smart home’s devices are connected with each other efficiently. Thus, it can be accessed through one central point—a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or game console.
Door locks, televisions, thermostats, home monitors, cameras, lights, and even refrigerators can be controlled through one home automation system. The system is installed on a mobile or other networked device. The user then can create time schedules for certain changes to take effect.
