There are four very practical reasons that people invest in smart house technologies. In no particular order, these are:
- Convenience – smart homes can help to simplify complex tasks, or to automate them completely.
- Security – using sensors and communications technologies, homes can be carefully and constantly monitored from anywhere.
- Comfort – climate and lighting systems can be automatically adjusted according to the time of day, the outside temperature or your individual mood.
- Efficiency – Smart homes can control when things turn on and off, and keep track of exactly where and how much energy is used in your home.
