1What is a smart home?
Smart homes automate and connect your household appliances, giving you more control than ever before. Everything is typically connected using WiFi, though it can also use radio protocols like ZigBee and Z-Wave. Another new option will be Bluetooth 5, which is said to be a potential technology for connecting smart home tech.
With devices connected to the Internet, you can setup:
Remote control, for adjusting the thermostat from anywhere
Home automation based on schedules, motion, temperature, and Voice control using Alexa, and Google Home.
2What smart home products should I buy first?
Baby steps. Start with a small, inexpensive smart home gadget that’s compatible with other technology. We recommend Google Mini Gen 2 or Alexa Devices
3Should I get Alexa, Google Home, or something else?
That depends on your preferences. As more smart speakers join the market, it’s certainly becoming a difficult choice. Alexa and Google each have their pros and cons. Alexa has a variety of devices, including the inexpensive Dot and the impressive Show with a full screen built in. Google Home’s big benefit is that it understands and answers questions easier than Alexa
