Home of the Future: Smart Homes

Ever wondered what it was about smart tech that has masses going cahoots? Think of the times when hundreds would join the never-ending lines outside of the Apple store just to get their hands on the latest iPhone. Or the first time a high-tech digital door caught your attention when watching a K-drama. From smart speakers like Google Home to the smartphones we own, the dream of building a Tony Stark worthy automated smart home seems more realistic than ever before! Yet, one question remains unanswered by many homeowners: Do I even need to own a smart home?

Imagine how convenient smart LED lighting solutions would be in these situations?

“Hey, Google! Turn all the lights off!”
