When it comes to installing smart home technology in your house or apartment, there are so many options. If you want everything, you’ll have to prepare to invest a lot of resources. If you’re on a budget and you have to make some difficult choices about what you absolutely need and what you can maybe live without, it’s a good idea to prioritize your smart home design.
A smart home can be as simply as a video doorbell and as complex as having everything automated – even your coffee maker and your bathroom lights. The benefit of this technology is that you can focus on what you really use the most. If your lawn is more important to you than your appliances, start with smart irrigation and sprinklers that are programmed to turn on at certain times. Then, start adding additional features to your home as you can afford them – smart thermostats and automated lighting, for example.
