I want a smart home. Where do I start?
Start your journey with baby steps. Begin with small inexpensive devices that impact the in home experience that will integrate with other technology you bring home. If you enjoy the experience you can add more devices. Here are a few good choices to get you going:
WeMo WiFi Smart Plug – you will be able to turn a fan, table lamp, holiday lights or any small appliance into a smarter version of itself.
Amazon Echo or Echo Dot – this smart speaker with the built-in digital assistant “Alexa” is a great addition. It’s ability to control other devices you will implement is a big plus.
Nest Learning Thermostat – at a slightly higher price point implement this device and realize some hard savings on your energy use.
