Home automation is getting a whole lot closer for the average family. Currently the domain of top end residential builds and the tech savvy, the Internet of Things (IoT) is coming soon to a neighbour near you.
PCMag Australia has produced a rundown of the latest and greatest home automation products designed to let you run everything in your house from a single device. From lights to appliances, surveillance cameras to blinds, it can all be controlled at the flick of a switch or by a simple voice command. With retrofit options now widely available, home-owners and renters can all enjoy the benefits of IoT.
There is a broad range in price from the simple to the complex home automation set up, and some still require advanced tech skills to set up. However, brands such as Amazon, Logitech, Netgear and LG are making DIY easier with each new product release.
