The Problem with DIY Smart Homes
It seems like everyone keeps saying, “there’s an app for that.” But if you continue to add apps to your smartphone, not only will you overload your phone, but you’ll also get app clutter. When it comes time to clean out the closet so to speak, you have to assess which ones you actually use on a daily basis and which ones you can do without.
DIY smart homes create app clutter because each time you buy a new device you have to download the app onto your phone. Buy a Nest thermostat for your Connecticut property and then you need to download the Nest app. Have a Sonos soundbar? You have to open the app every time you want to change the music or turn up the volume.
But what if you could simply open one app and use it to control your Sonos speaker, Nest thermostat, Honeywell smart locks and so much more? The answer is integration. You are connecting separate systems into one unified system. With home automation you can control every separate device with just one user interface. You can get rid of all those other apps and just use one for all your needs.
Your Whole Home in One Touch
