That being said, technology such as smartphones have not only revolutionized the way we go about our daily lives but they also have become a digital Swiss Army Knife that we simply cannot live without.

So what exactly is a smart home and what technology do smart homes use?
A smart home is the use of automated and interconnected devices and systems around the home that will give residents the ability to control appliances and devices throughout their home from a central device. The time has come where we no longer have to get out of bed or off the couch to adjust the temperature, lights, or any other connected devices or appliances in your house. Devices such as Nest thermostats, Amazon smart plugs, LED lights and energy-efficient appliances can be accessed by various smartphone applications that not only can save you money, but they also can help save the environment as well.
Installing these devices around your home can be quick and painless, but before you purchase these expensive items think about buying one at a time. Simply because these devices can add up very quickly. Remember, you don’t have to build a smart home in one day. Gradually add more devices to your network and sooner or later you will be able to control just about everything in your house with the simple touch of a button.
