A Complete Guide to Smart Home Automation

Smart Home is one of the buzzwords in the last decade, but what exactly does it mean? A Smart Home refers to a home where certain electrical & electronic appliances are connected to the Internet, otherwise known as the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. These could be everything from light bulbs that turn on to your voice command to smart security cameras that give you a live feed of your home on a mobile application.

Possibilities with a smart home are many; voice control through Artificial intelligence-powered voice assistants such as Apple Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Samsung Bixby, automating actions, such as having your window shades open to the morning sun & turning on the water heater to prepare your bath while playing your favourite music. With geo-based automation, your home can know when you are away or coming back home and change your thermostat reading to save energy. A smart home makes your life effortless & convenient and helps you focus on doing things that you love such as reading a book to your little one, learning a new language or working on a passion project.

What is a Smart Home?

In short, a smart home is any home with electrical or electronic devices that can be controlled remotely using smart devices or respond to pre-set conditions like time-based schedules, geo-based triggers, or sensors output.
