If you haven't added smart technology to your home, you're missing out. My family and I have many smart home items that make our lives easier and help us save money. We have cameras that allow us to monitor exterior of our home remotely. Our thermostat can turn itself down to keep our energy costs down. We also tech that allows us to tell us weather, news and play music all over our home. Smart thermostats that allow us to change the temperature of our home. Once you have smart items installed in your home, you wouldn't be able to live without them. Setting up a smart home is very easy, but you need to have the right smart home hub to make it easy to control all of your connected devices. There are several brands of hubs on the market, some you probably already own. Check out my list of favorite smart home hubs, so you can get started creating and enjoying your own smart home.


Before we proceed, understand there are a large number of companies that are competing for your smart home dollars and many of these devices will not work together unless you purchase all of their products or get smart hub system that works with every smart home product on the market. Also, some smart home hubs are wireless and others need to be connected to a router. With that in mind, let's move on. Also, keep in mind before you think about setting up a smart home, make sure you have strong wifi coverage all over your house. If you have spotty wifi, there are a number of devices you can purchase to give you a strong wifi signal.
