Imagine arriving at your home in the evening, your house alarm recognizes you, your driveway gate opens, and a path from the garage to the kitchen is lit – no struggling to find switches in the dark. When you walk up to the door, a smart lock unlocks the door with your code or by smartphone and disarms your alarm. Each person you grant access to your home will have their own code and you’ll receive a text message when they enter or leave. At a press of a button when you leave, your smart home system sets the thermostat into ‘Efficient’ mode, turns off all lights, TVs, music, arms the alarm and then checks to make sure the door is locked after.
