What is a smart home?

A smart home is equipped with smart lighting, heating, and electronic devices that you can control with your phone or computer. Smart devices either use automation technology or connect to the internet to become 'smart'. There are many options available, from smart lights and smart thermostats to security options like smart locks and windows.

Having a smart home and smart home systems gives you more control over your energy because you can turn things like your heating and lights on and off even when you're not at home.
