20 years ago having an electric garage door opener or motion light sensors on the outside of the house was something we thought was very cool. Drive your car up and BAM! there was daylight at night. Today the idea of a "Smart Home" moves inside and has so much more to offer owners. These include Wifi and blue tooth capability for the occupants,smart temperature thermostats for heating cooling, security system and refrigerators that tell you when your almost out of milk. The possibilities are unlimited.
My favorite is the simple smart plug outlet for your cell phone and charger. you canlook at alot of these gadgets at http://www.smarthome.com/ to see just a few. New home builders ans well as current home owners are adding many of these features to todays homes. I guess were just making life easier or are we?
