Smart home lighting done well is a small piece of magic and happiness. Choosing the right kind of lighting and configuration makes all the difference. Getting started with smart lighting can be confusing since there are so many different kinds and applications. This will help you get started.
The real value of smart homes is smart device integration. Having your devices talk with each other and interacting is where the magic happens. If you are not home and you left the lights on or a door unlocked, having that taken care of for you is awesome. The more your devices can interact and respond to each other the more value you get out of your setup. I have several practical examples of how this can work for you.
If you have already started your smart home journey and looking for a smart hub or just beginning, this is for you. In Smart Hubs set up smartly Part I, I provided an overview of what a smart home is and Goldfeder’s rules of smart homes.
A smart home is a residence that has smart devices integrated with each other through a hub using automation where the events of devices trigger actions of others.
That’s my definition and this is a guide on how to get started – no matter what your level of technical expertise is.
