Control, convenience, and peace of mind are the three major benefits consumers gain from the use of “smart home” systems – the not-so-new technology that allows for the remote management of home lighting, heating, security and appliances using a mobile device or computer. Just imagine: you're just about to board the plane to go on vacation, and you suddenly realize that you’ve forgotten to turn off the oven. No problem, you can turn it off right from your phone. Wait, no need... your smart system already turned it off for you when you left the house, along with the HDTV in the living room.
That’s what the “smart home” concept is all about.
