Smart Home Technology: The Basics

Smart home technology is the term we use for the basic home facilities that have been connected with communication technology. The interconnected amenities offer remote control or certain automation to make our home a more secure and well-managed place to live. Yep...that even includes vacuuming robots that would make the Jetsons green with envy.


From the kitchen to the bathroom, smart home technology comes in many shapes and sizes. Choose from:

  • Home entertainment systems

  • Security systems

  • Washing machines

  • Smart fridges (my personal favorite in this list)

  • Air conditioners/heating systems

  • Camera equipped door bells (great for pranking the FedEx guy)

  • Lighting system

  • TeleFrame (in the near future)

  • And plenty more

You can control all the appliances mentioned above with the help of various devices including Nest, Alexa, Ecobee and many more. The devices that grants us such automation typically offer access through the help of software or mobile apps.
