Just like our phones, our home are becoming smart. To make them smart they are being fitted with:
- smart switches
- smart lights
- smart Locks
These once normal household devices are being made smart by connecting them together over a network, and then to the Internet.
Because most Homes built today aren’t smart they will be made smart incrementally,by adding smart devices to solve present day problems
Perhaps you might need to install a security system, so you install a smart security system. Later you want to integrate it with your lights so you install a smart lighting system.
In order to do this you will need a basic understanding of networking and how, or if, they can be connected to each other.
