SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY is the fastest growing area of technology today, but it’s taken the longest to get noticed. Home automation and smart home products have been around for more than 20 years, yet for most people, the trend first started being noticeable only in the last couple of years. There are a few reasons for this, but primarily it’s due to the rise in inexpensive do-it-yourself (DIY) systems which have made smart home lifestyles more affordable and easier to get than ever before.
However, smart home systems don’t need to be confusing or intimidating. You don’t have to be an expert to set up and use one, but you should understand the basics of how the technology works. Electronic House’s new ebook, “The Complete Guide to DIY Smart Home Systems,” is designed to help both novices and tech enthusiasts automate their homes.
This downloadable eBook will explain the main types of smart home systems, the wireless protocols that connect them and the devices that you’ll need or want.
