My Smart Home Adventure

By Lee Sands / 17th November 2015 at 12:45

There is a fast growing group of products that aim to make your life easier by reducing the burden of everyday tasks, connecting to each other in clever ways and allowing you to easily manage your home from anywhere with an internet connection. These "Smart Home" products bill themselves as time and money saving in a space where little has change for many years. Can these new devices really do that? Can devices from multiple manufacturers co-exist and not only play ball with other but work together in ways that we always wanted them too?

I have long planned out my smart home journey, the results of which are impossible to confine to a single article. The sections below break the topic into relevant areas and will be released over the next few weeks as I come to grips with all of this new tech and answer the burning questions about this new niche of home gadgets - Are they worth it?
