While you have been home these past few months, I am sure you have thought; Can I turn on my lights with my iPad? Can I turn on my lights and tv at the same time from a push of one button? Can I see what doors are unlocked at once? Well the answer to those questions is yes, if you had a smart home. With technology in your home the options are endless. 

Some of the things you can do today with a smart home are:

  •     Control all the lights around your home
  •     Get notifications and video when someone is at your door. You can even unlock the door and communicate with the person there
  •     You can monitor your home security system when you go back to the office

SMART HOME WITHOUT AN OS

Unfortunately, most of the time you have a smart home you have multiple apps that you have to manage, but with a smart home OS you won’t have to change apps you can just one to manage all of your smart home needs. It really is more convenient.

Traditional smart lighting might sound like it would be useful and they would be, but what if you don’t have your phone or Alexa. Well then you would have to get up and manually turn on the lights, now you have disrupted the connection between the lights and the app. The disruption could also mess with your default settings.
