In the automated home, “smart” appliances are controlled by a single “hub,” which functions as the heart – or brain – of your smart home, delivering messages between devices and your smart phone or tablet. Typically, a wireless network – but not your WIFI signal – is programmed throughout the home and then set to “communicate” with home security systems, temperature controls, entertainment systems, and wireless lighting. This network is what the hub – and all related devices – run on.
Once your hub is installed, it’s simple to add smart devices one by one. This includes your lighting, inside the home and out. Once your wireless network is up and running, your wireless lighting system will go to work, gathering information about your needs and making your lights work intelligently for you.
