It isn’t unknown to anybody that technology has made its way into people lives and is here to stay. Nowadays properties, like Bluewaters apartments in Dubai and new projects by Emaar or other developers are designed to work alongside with technology.

There are things such as smart locks and smart video doorbells. Also, there are others a little more known by people these days such as Siri, Alexa, and others (these are called voice assistants). And you can find some simpler ones like motion-activated lights (highly recommended by Dubai real estate agencies).

But first:

WHAT IS A SMART HOME?

Thankfully, developments and technology these days are so specific and well-done that you can set up one or many devices in your property that can help classify it as a ‘smart’ one. This is just a term that’s been used lately to describe an internet-enabled system.

Of course, a property can be as smart as you want it. Depending on the smart system you install, you can start with simple things like a smart lighting or a smart lock or with more bigger smart systems.

HOW DO YOU MAKE A HOME SMART?

There are several hundreds of types of smart devices and systems to install in your property. There are some amazing smart appliances that can connect via wi-fi or Bluetooth to your phone.

REVIEW YOUR NETWORK

You need to have your local and home network in consideration because almost all of the smart devices need wifi access or at the very least a Bluetooth connection. Remember that when you have a ton of devices all connected to a single network, you may cause it to slow down.

The one thing that should be the FIRST of your concerns is security. All of those devices will be transmitting data. A lot of that data can be sensitive or private so you have to make sure that your network is secure.

PURCHASE AND INSTALL YOUR TECH

Now you can start setting up the smart home of your dreams without making much effort. Just invest in those appliances you think will make your life easier. Devices that can be controlled via smartphone or voice commands are among the most popular! So give some of them a try and start living your smart dream!
