What is a smart home?

A smart, or with other expression, connected home is networked to enable the interconnection and interoperability of multiple devices, services and apps which are delivered over multiple interlinked and integrated devices, sensors, tools and platforms. The system allows them to be remotely controlled, monitored and accessed, to provide connected, real-time, smart and contextual experiences for the household inhabitants. Smart devices connect to the internet also many of them have smartphone apps, allowing us to access and control them over Wi-Fi.

What can a smart home do?

Using the smart home technology, we can control and see what is happening in our home, even when we are not there using a smartphone, tablet or in some cases computer. For example, we can install a home camera that allows us to check in on our pets or other house inhabitants whenever we want. There is also the potential to lower the cost of our utility bills, as we get the chance of remotely monitoring our heating, water and electricity. Connected homes can also protect the most vulnerable part of society. Some devices can trigger an alert if an elderly person fails to take their pills, falls over or is behaving outside their normal routine.
