Recap: Smart Home Guide

“Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation.”

– Dean Kamen

Smart homes and connected devices are the way of the future – are you staying up to date with all of today’s innovations? If you missed it, make sure that you read our Massachusetts Smart Home Guide from last week, where we outlined many of today’s smart home devices, including:

  • Thermostats that you can set without even leaving the couch.
  • Light bulbs to turn on and off without having to cross a dark room.
  • Security cameras that you can watch in real time while you’re out.
  • Switches and outlets that can turn any device into a smart device.
  • Speakers that can control smart devices with your voice and will answer your burning questions.

These devices can make your life a lot easier, especially if you are someone who is never far from their phone. Make sure that you do your research before buying, however – some brands and devices are meant to be used together, and others won’t play nice with each other.
