Smart Home Benefits
Home automation provides peace of mind to homeowners, allowing them to monitor their homes remotely, countering dangers such as a forgotten coffee maker left on or a front door left unlocked.
Users can set their preferences to “greet” you as you arrive home, such as, your garage door will open, the lights will go on, the fireplace may roar to life, and your favorite music station will be playing on your smart speakers.
Smart Technology Drawbacks
However, home automation can have its drawback in that it is sometimes perceived to be too complex. Some people have difficulty with technology and will give up with the first challenge in setting up a new device.
A home automation system needs to have devices that are interoperable with one another regardless of who manufactured them. Although things are getting better, there is currently no standard for home automation.
