What Is A Smart Home And What Goes Into The Technology

What Is A Smart Home And What Goes Into The Technology

  Have you ever had anyone ask you or have you had to ask yourself, what is a smart home? The term "smart house" was introduced in the 1980's by the National Association of Home Builders. The term was coined to refer to a home with integrated phone lines, phone lines, audio, lighting and security. These homes required special wiring and typically cost thousands of dollars. As time has progressed so has the concept, it has evolved now using smartphones to operate less expensive devices and can make data accessible online.

  Some are actually calling for a change in the definition of a smart home, and would like to define it as "equipped with network-connected products", connected via Wi-Fi, Buetooth, or similar protocols to optimize functionality.  To be labeled a smart house each home would need to have internet access, smart security or temperature system, and at least two other smart features. In luxury markets these features have moved from an impressive upgrade to almost always expected.

  In these high-end markets many home owners who are thinking about listing their homes are installing these smart systems thinking they will be at a disadvantage without one. Builders are now installing smart devices in new construction at a rapid pace. The Belkin WeMo Switch, AmazonEcho, and Nest thermostat are a few of these smart devices. Many of these new devices could be had at a reasonable cost of a few hundred dollars or less. Which leaves many to believe that older homes and lower-priced listings may very well be jumping into the smart home mix.
