What is a Smart Home?
Smart Home is a technology that gives you, the homeowner, access to your home appliances, control and monitor them remotely no matter where you are in the world. These appliances include: lights, fans, ACs, TVs, security systems, entertainment systems and more.
Are Smart Homes useful?
There are many uses for a Smart Home. Most common ones are:
-Provides peace of mind knowing that you, your family members and your belongings are safe all the time. If something happens while away, you will know it INSTANTLY by receiving notifications on your phone.
-Helps reduce your monthly energy bill as it seamlessly reduces unnecessary power consumption. Like automatically turning off idle appliances when not in use.
-Brings convenience to your home by giving your house a brain allowing it to take care of you without your interference.
What is the difference between a Smart Home and a Security System?
Smart Home has several features and one of them is Security.
The main difference is that a standalone security system protects against break-ins by sounding an alarm and by the time you know, it is just too little too late.
While a Smart Home can do the following:
-Sounds an alarm.
-Sends an INSTANT notification to your phone and to other family members so you get to know on the spot.
-Allows you to view the cameras LIVE on your phone.
-Flashes all lights in the house to help warn you and others.
-Makes an emergency call on your phone in case you missed the notifications.
How does it work?
A Smart Home involves having a set of Smart Devices attached to your home appliances allowing them to be controlled via your smart phone where you could view them and control them from anywhere around the world.
Your home appliances will also be able to talk to each other to serve you better. For example living room lights and AC will automatically turn on every time you return home from work.
What is the best Smart Home system?
That is like asking: “What is the best ice cream flavor?” Every person has a different favorite ice cream flavor. Similarly every individual or family has a different lifestyle at home.

We continuously acquire and test products and brands. The ones that pass the tests stay while the rest go straight to garbage.

Absolutely NOT! Almost all of the known brands failed our tests.
