We’ve all been in situations where we have left the house only to remember that we’ve forgotten some pressing household matters. Like the gas is on, the water taps aren’t closed properly or we aren’t sure if the air conditioner is still on. Then the doubts begin to creep up. We play the blame game with our spouses and kids. Whose responsibility was it to switch off the upstairs light? Who was watching TV before leaving?
We feel helpless and we are then faced with yet another dilemma. Should you turn back home to double check or should you keep on worrying till you come back home again?
Smart homes put an end to this vicious cycle of doubt and frustration. Imagine a scenario where you whip out your Smartphone and with the press of a button, you make sure that all the doors are locked and all lights and other electrical appliances are switched off. How about coming home to your favourite music on the stereo, while your coffee machine percolates coffee, even before you step into the house? Feels like heaven right?
