Smart home technology is transforming the way we live our lives. Gone are the days when you need to be in the house to set up or use your electronics. With smart tech, all you need is a mobile device and a network connection.

Smart home devices are all about control, convenience and comfort. It’s now easier than ever to manage the appliances within your home, because everything you need is at your fingertips.

What is a Smart Home?

A smart home uses a variety of internet-connected devices and appliances, which can all be controlled online via a mobile phone or tablet. Some of the most common smart home devices include lights, thermostats, cameras and doorbells. Because smart gadgets are managed remotely, you can switch them on, turn them off or adjust them from anywhere.

Want to turn on the heating and switch the lights on shortly before you get home from work? You can do it in an instant with smart lighting and a smart thermostat. Don’t want to miss a visitor or a delivery while you’re out? A smart doorbell lets you answer the door via your phone – you can even see who’s there, and have a conversation with them.

Smart devices bring far more benefits than convenience, though. By giving you greater control of your energy use, your home smart system can also help you reduce unnecessary usage. You’ll get access to insights that make it easy to identify where you’re using more energy than you need – a few simple changes can help you cut back and save money on your bills.
