Android apps for your smart home

Are all the windows closed? Is the light switched off? Did not anyone make it into the apartment? If your house is connected to the Internet, it’s enough to look at the smartphone screen to see if everything is in order. This is made possible by smart home systems. And the most wonderful thing is that you can manage your home from everywhere. You just need to press the buttons on the smartphone’s screen to mute the lights in the living room, adjust the heating or turn on the TV.

In the heating system, the connection to the mobile device provides a smart thermostat. For windows, this task is performed by the sensor, which registers the opening and closing of the leaflets. A TV, a floor lamp or a coffee maker are connected to the Internet using smart outlets.
