A Smart-Home Quick-Start Guide

Any home can become a smart home. All it takes is a few key essentials and you're on your way to time-saving automation and energy efficiency.

According to the US Energy Information Administration, smart thermostats save people living in the state of Alabama an average of 24.5% on their energy bill every year.

So how do you make your home a smart home? It really isn’t as complicated as it may seem. You simply begin with a smart hub, or a digital assistant, which is the brains of the outfit—the digital command center that not only serves as your personal assistant, but also links whatever smart products you choose to add. Turning the lights off and on and controlling other connected devices is as easy as giving your digital assistant a voice command.

You can select from a wide variety of smart products to make your home a connected home. Things like smart thermostats, video doorbells (also known as doorbell cameras), smart plugs and switches, security and home monitoring systems, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, smart locks, and even smart appliances are just a handful of the growing roster of smart products on the market today.
