And does your home need to be smarter?
Smart Home is a general term that can refer to any number of features in a house that are Internet-enabled — with the purpose of making your life easier and your home more efficient. These can include turning on lights, monitoring security cameras, adjusting your thermostat, and much more.
The simplest to install smart home components include Internet assistants, like the Amazon Alexa or Google Home, that perform simple tasks when asked by voice. These devices utilize the internet for commands like: remind me to check the oven in 30 minutes, what’s the meaning of a certain word, or, play some country music.
With additional connected devices —and fast, reliable Internet— these assistants can pre-heat your oven, unlock a door with smart locks, and even start your car on a cold day, all from the comfort of your couch. Plus, you can do all this away from home with a mobile phone or computer.
