The wave of the future will soon be automated smart homes.
I’m not talking about a home that can solve a math problem. Instead, how about a home where you can adjust the thermostat from your smartphone?
Smart home technology describes basic home amenities that have been fitted with communication technology, enabling some degree of either automation or remote control. It includes things like:
- Appliances — washing machines, fridges, and garage door openers
- Environmental controls, like air conditioning, heating, and lighting
- Home security systems
