Home automation is a way of connecting all of the electrical devices in your home. The devices around your home will be linked to the ‘smart hub’. Usually, you will be able to control the devices using the mobile app, either inside your home remotely. You will then have to purchase smart devices to link up to your system.
I spent a while looking for the best smart home systems in the UK and decided I would pick a system that could incorporate devices from different manufacturers so that I could choose the appliances myself, instead of having to choose them all from the same manufacturer. I was unsure about the whole process, but I got in touch with a home automation company and they helped me to choose a system and appliances. They also helped me to understand what wiring changes would be required for the installation.
