There’s no place like home, especially if it’s a smart one. Who wouldn’t want to live in a place where the refrigerator makes the grocery list and the house warms up before you arrive? The idea of an automated home has been around since The Jetsons aired in the 1960s, but the reality of an interactive home came about in the last 10 years.
As technology has advanced, the options have become more affordable and homeowners have started scooping up home networking solutions, domestic technology products and other gadgets with which to ride this new wave. Now the Internet of Things (IoT) is making a smart home smarter than anyone could have expected and many homeowners want it all.
