Introducing you to the Building Blocks of Smart Home and Automation.


Our WHAT IS? series of articles are designed purely to get you familiar with the Building Blocks that make up the Smart Home.

Building Blocks are the device types and technologies that make up the Smart Home. There are many ways to build your ideal Smart Home, but no matter what you decide you should understand the Building Blocks before investing.

WHAT IS? is an ongoing project which we will constantly be updating.
