The computer age in this 21st century has given rise to the transformation of many every day devices into smarter versions of their predecessors. Today, there are smart phones, smart automobiles, and even smart watches. With them, more and more tasks are becoming fully or partially automated, making them easier to use and depend on.
In light of all these changes, why not also have a smart home? It can definitely make living in your home safer, easier, and in most instances, more cost-effective. Think of it this way: your espresso machine starts brewing as you wake up, outdoor lights turn on as you pull into the driveway at night, and your window shades are fully motorized, among many other nifty features. Essentially, your home reacts to your living patterns and automatically does things that would have normally needed your effort and time.
