If we want to change our home into a smart home the most economical decision is to start with lighting. If we are new to smart technology is best to start with one thing at the time. Smart plugs are a great place to start. If we decide to buy a remote plug, we don’t need smart bulbs or smart appliances. With a smart plug, we will never have to worry again that we left something plugged in. It’s doesn’t matter if it’s an iron, a curling iron or a light fixture. If we have smart plugs in our home, we can turn them off remotely through an app. The app is also giving us measurements of electricity consumption. However, it’s recommended that we change our lightbulbs to LEDs. They use less energy the bulbs last longer and they give us far more natural lighting.
