Smart home management solutions provide a platform to monitor and manage other consumer IoT devices, including thermostats, lights, security systems, and appliances. They enable smart devices to communicate, exchange data, and be controlled by third-party software.
Smart home management solutions enable users to get the most out of their smart devices, without having to keep track of multiple devices. According to a 2018 study by Parks Associates, 75 percent of consumers who planned to buy a smart home device said it was essential that their device be interoperable with their existing and future devices.
By enabling smart home devices to communicate, consumers can automate processes and routines implementing multiple devices – for example, setting the lights to dim when the television is turned on or turning on the lights and lowering the thermostat when the front door is unlocked.
Key Benefits of Smart Home Management
- Enable smart home devices to communicate, exchange data, and trigger actions based on each other, despite different manufacturers and brands.
- Automate processes and create schedules that engage multiple devices.
- Access different devices, no matter their brand, from one interface – preventing users from having to learn and manage multiple apps to manage and operate their smart home.
