Most people have absolutely no idea what a Smart Home is. Is it a fancy word for home security? Is it a way to spy on your kids when they get out of school? Is it about being smart with your energy consumption? Does it talk to you when you are lonely and cook you dinner? Okay, maybe that’s asking a little too much. But in all seriousness, most of us have really never thought about automating our home, and that’s okay, we’ve been getting along just fine without it.
