What is a smart home?
CNET, an American media website that publishes reviews, articles, and more on technology and consumer electronics, defines a Smart Home as: "A home that is equipped with network-connected products (aka “smart products,” connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or similar protocols) for controlling, automating and optimizing functions such as temperature, lighting, security, safety or entertainment, either remotely by a phone, tablet, computer or a separate system within the home itself.”
