What is a smart home?

It is simply integrating multiple smart devices up in your house. They can take away a lot of the manual effort involved in completing tasks around your home.

These devices can be products like smart locks, smart lighting or smart thermostats just to mention a few.

Hook these devices up to your WiFi connection, and now you have a powerful set of features and methods of controlling them.

You can control everything straight from your favorite devices like your smartphone, tablet or computer.

With a voice assistant, most of these devices can be controlled using voice commands.

What’s it like living in a home with smart home technology?

Over the past few years, I’ve been adding various smart products in my home. It’s been a fantastic experience.

While I don’t live a full-featured smart home, I have added enough to gain some insight into the experience.

One of the biggest things I’ve enjoyed so far is the ability to control my smart devices using a voice assistant. It feels so futuristic having everything so readily at my command.

One of my other favorites is the control I’m able to have over my house, without actually being at home. So if I have forgotten the garage door open, no problem, I simply pull out my smartphone, check it, and close it if I have to.

Left an appliance on? Simply turn it off with an app on your smartphone. Provided that you have the appliance plugged into a smart plug of course.

So as you can see, it adds an element of safety you couldn’t have before. The convenience factor is also a huge plus.
