As you will learn soon, homeowners notice a big difference between a house with some Internet of Things (IoT) devices in it and a completely automated, streamlined home. We understand how those two concepts might seem synonymous at first. When someone walks into a residence and notices anything tech-forward, they might assume it’s a “smart home.”
Not so fast: Total home automation requires a higher level of connectivity, compatible devices and a central control system to streamline all these IoT tools.
