What is a Smart Device?
A smart device is something that you interact with which will then carry out an action in your home. This can range from turning on lights via voice command to adjusting the temperature in your home when you are away from it.
What do Smart Devices do?
Smart devices are becoming wider-ranging in their applications. For example, you can now get robot vacuum cleaners that you can control by your voice, Smart plugs which can turn on any electrical device plugged into a three-pin socket, and security cameras that turn on by voice command when you leave the house.
- light bulbs,
- weather stations
- vacuum cleaners
and even water valves that you can turn on with your voice to water your garden. And while you’re in your garden you can have a robotic lawnmower to mow your grass.
The devices are fairly easy to set up but if you have trouble, that’s what we’re there for, to help set up your smart home devices in West Sussex, South Surrey and surrounding areas.

What do I need for Smart Device Set Up?
The one thing you need to run your smart devices is Wi-Fi in your home. Once your home has good Wi-Fi coverage reaching every room, you can install all manner of smart home devices and automate your life.
The market leader is Amazon. Their Alexa range of smart devices powers a whole host of things. Everything in the above list and more. Personally, this is the range I use to automate my house. I find it handy to turn lights on and off from anywhere in the house. Also to know my weather and news in the morning and also to tell me what the traffic is like on the roads.
If you fancy having a smart device in your house but don’t know where to start, call (07771) 588577 today can get you started on your home automation.
By combining different items like the Amazon Alexa with lights it can make your life easier. We are familiar with the Phillips Hue range of bulbs and smart accessories.
Why Should I Have Smart Devices?
First and foremost, they make life easier. And who doesn’t want an easy life?
So many automated home appliances are available these days, with more and more coming out regularly. It seems fairly clear this is the way that things are going. And perhaps it’s best to be in on the ground floor in using and understanding these devices.
Unless you are unlucky, we will all get old and chances are automation will be far more common then than it is now, so knowing how to work with smart devices may be a big plus when it comes to ordering a large glass of wine in the nursing home!
