A smart home is any property that contains ‘Internet of Things’ devices. These devices usually contain an electronic ‘brain’ that allows them to perform actions based on specific, user defined conditions. For example a normal light bulb can be switched on and off using the light switch. A smart light bulb can be turned on and off via a smart phone, and it can also turn itself on and off based on pre-programmed rules, such as when the sun sets, or when a person arrives home. By taking away the ‘manual’ part of its operation, it essentially becomes smarter, and in turn makes your life easier.
