With the Internet being ubiquitous and the fact that everyone now carries a smart phone around makes some amazing, even “Star Trek” type of things possible.
Imagine being on vacation and turning on your lights in the kitchen to make it seem you’re still at home? How about turning up the temperature on your thermostat on your way home so it’s at the temperature you want by the time you arrive? Forget to lock the front door before you left? Lock it from your vacation resort!
All of these things are now possible with a few simple, affordable devices and the Internet.
