Smart Homes come in several flavors. The most common one is when you buy wireless equipment and plug it into the wall and use a ‘hub’ and the vendors App. These are typically run from your phone and you make schedules. Examples would be wifi plugs. Other vendors offer light bulbs with WiFi built into the bulb. You can then use a hub or your phone to configure the ports to turn on and off as you like. Another kind of Smart Home is a switched system where the wireless is built into the light switch. These are also configured with your phone or a hub. Finally, there is integration. Alexa, ADT, environmental monitoring , security cameras. For example, if you want to have a house where Alexa can do everything by voice then you would choose a system that is tailored to that. Or if you want a security system and the ability to schedule your lights to go on and off automatically would be another kind of scenario.
