Have you heard someone use the term "Smart Home" and question what exactly does that mean? The easiest way to describe a smart home is when you can connect appliances and devices in your home to your smart phone so they can communicate with one another. By connecting these things to your phone, this is allowing you to have control of them at any given time.
Today there are several different things that will connect to your phone. For example, you can control your garage door at the touch of a button. Worried that you forgot to close it when you left to go to work this morning? Don't worry, at the touch of your phone you can check to see if you did and close it if you need to.
In today's age, any device in your home that uses electricity can be put on your home network and at your command. Whether you give that command by voice, remote control, tablet or smartphone, the home will react. Most applications interact with lighting, home security, home theater and entertainment, and thermostat regulation.
