How to set a home up to be smart
There is a large range of smart tools at your disposal, so you can choose the ones that suit you & your lifestyle. Some smart controls may need to be connected to a hub, this may be their own branded hub, or you may be able to use the likes of Google’s Home.
Once you’ve worked out what types of controls you want, you then need to work out whether or not they can interact with each other. Interaction between devices provides better overall control, but it isn’t overly necessary. You can set them all up individually if you wish, but this will create a larger number of applications on your phone or computer to manage.
Check out the table below to see what each manufacturer creates.
Once you have made your decision, installation is simple and all you need to do is follow the set-up steps provided to you. Once installed you can then start setting up your personal profiles. Profiles are created through the apps, you can then control the device itself through the same app.
