What Is a Connected Home?
If you have a smartphone, you've already taken the first step in setting up your connected home! When you buy gadgets like voice assistants Amazon Echo and Google Home, a smart thermostat, or a Bluetooth speaker, you are buying something that can communicate with your smartphone in one way or another. These gadgets usually come with their own app that communicates with the gadget you bought, and can connect with one other device as well.
A connected home simply means that the smart devices you own in your home can communicate with each other through the Internet of Things. For example, you can use your voice to tell your voice assistant to pause your smart TV and change the temperature down to a comfortable 72°F.
