What Smart Home Products will You Actually Use?

Jason - Smart Home Focus Blog

There are a lot of products out there, but you need to buy the right ones and integrate them together in the right way to truly get the benefits of a smart home. 

If done correctly, your home can become a smart home that is enjoyed by you, your family and visitors. If done poorly, it will create frustration for everyone and you will hear things such as:  turn that off, I just want to use the switch, or can I just do it the old way.  

On this site, you will find discussions and guides on the products, integrations and automation that I have used to build a functioning, usable smart home that works!


Where do you start?

Congratulations! You are about to embark on the fun, frustrating, and addictive journey of building a Smart Home. Chances are, you already have one or more components of a Smart Home (i.e. Amazon Echo, Google Home, Sonos Speakers, Hue Lights, Samsung SmartThings, etc.).Getting all of the products to work together can be as frustrating as getting my kids to play together nicely. But when it happens, it can almost be magical. And the good part…Anyone Can Do This!
