A smart home is a residence equipped with advanced automation systems and devices that can be controlled remotely or through voice commands. Smart homes use the Internet of Things (IoT) technology to connect various devices and appliances, allowing for seamless communication and interaction between them.
Examples of smart devices and systems commonly found in a smart home include smart thermostats, smart lighting, smart locks, smart security cameras, smart speakers, and smart appliances like refrigerators, ovens, and washing machines. These devices can be controlled using a smartphone app, a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, or a dedicated smart home hub.
Smart homes provide a range of benefits, including convenience, energy efficiency, improved security, and greater comfort. They can also help homeowners save money on their energy bills by automating energy use and allowing for more efficient management of appliances and systems.
