What is a smart home?
A smart home is defined by the National Association of Home Builders as: “a home that has been designed, built, and/or installed so that it is capable of responding to signals from devices such as motion sensors, lights, thermostats, and appliances to automate the operations of various devices.”
In other words, a smart home is a home that has been adapted to allow it to be controlled through technology. It allows you to control your house using your smartphone or tablet.
You can turn lights on and off, lock doors, adjust heating or cooling, and more, all from the comfort of your living room couch.
