SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY
It’s here. It’s no longer just for the affluent or tech-obsessed young consumers. Smart home technology is becoming an integral part of our everyday lives.
What is a smart home? It’s a home equipped with smart products connected through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to control or automate the functions of a house. Thermostats that learn to adjust the temperature automatically based on your schedule, lightbulbs that you can control from your phone, doors that automatically lock when you leave the house are just a few examples of home automation.
