WilcoxsmarthomeeasierlifeImagine being able to access and control all the important features of your house from your home or at a distance. Think of the smart devices you currently use to make your life easier – mobile phones and voice activated assistants, for example. Now imagine the convenience of smart devices that can communicate with one another within your home.

What makes a home smart?

In a smart home, a fast wi-fi connection makes it possible for the homeowner to access and control the important features of the house:

  • Lights
  • Thermostat
  • Entertainment and media
  • Smart appliances
  • Door locks
  • Outdoor lighting

Devices within this system connect and communicate with each other over a local wired or wireless network. This often, but not always, requires system management software or apps, the installation of the devices, motion sensors, temperature sensors, and related components.

You don’t have to do it all at once. The beauty of these smart home options is that the features can be added in pieces. If energy efficiency is your main concern, your first step may be simply adding a smart thermostat.
