A smart home is not disparate smart devices and appliances, but ones that work together to create a remotely controllable network. All devices are controlled by a master home automation controller. It is a hardware device that acts as the central point of the smart home system and is able to sense, process data and communicate wirelessly. It combines all of the disparate appliances into a single smart home app that can be controlled remotely by homeowners.
A smart home provides homeowner safety, comfort, convenience and energy savings by allowing them to control smart devices thru smart home applications on smart phones, wall switch or other networked devices.
