What’s a smart home?


  • Smart homes use smart technology to meet the needs of different lifestyles
  • Smart tech is always evolving and helps families and individuals create the perfect home environment
  • Check out our Smart Home Store which sells lots of products that you can install yourself.

A smart home uses smart technology to enable ‘smarter living’. Smart appliances and devices use technology to fit in with your lifestyle and your household’s needs.

Smart home products include: voice-controlled assistants; appliances that can be controlled via smartphone apps even when you’re not at home; security kit such as outdoor lights and cameras; and mood lighting. They also allow greater control. For example, most heating systems use timers that can only be set for the same time every day. With a smart thermostat, you can turn on your heating only at the times you need, even when you’re out and about.

Some smart tech could help you save energy too.

Smart technology is constantly evolving with new products coming to the market all the time, so it can be confusing to know how to introduce smart tech into your homes. Our Smart Home Store sells carefully selected products from trusted brands that are easy to use and install. You’ll find some helpful advice on the products too.
