The dream of owning a smart home is now a reality for most homeowners. Thanks to advancements in smart home automation technology over the decade.
Home automation modifies your home to automatically perform different sets of tasks. Many of the home automation systems rely on “Internet of Things (IoT)” devices, which make it possible to control different functions in your home through mobile and voice technology.
A smart home automation system allows you to monitor, track and control various appliances that are connected to the internet and can be controlled either on an app on your mobile phone or computer.
Appliances like dishwasher, coffee maker
Heating and cooling systems
Security systems (alarm system, doors, windows, cameras, locks)
The smart home automation market is growing and has already impacted our lives. As the prices of IoT devices prices continue to decrease, the general public has found more and more benefits to these products.

One of the new trends in smart home devices is geo fence-controlled devices. Because users want to control who can access the device, they only make it accessible to a few people in the surrounding area.
This prevents many remote hacks by third parties
Recently, we helped a Texas-based company by developing a mobile-based application to control selected Smart home devices by Voice command from anywhere and anytime.
With the help of the application, the user can open, close, and monitor their appliances as well as schedule a time for any activity. Voice and text notifications are also shared to update the user on the status of smart home devices.
