About Smart Home
From kettles to doorbell cameras, as technology continues to advance, our homes are becoming increasingly smart. In today’s digital world, we have a larger need for convenience and computerised security. With MyMemory’s range of smart home accessories, you’ll be sure to find the perfect solution for your home.
What is a smart home?
What if all of your devices could connect to the internet? Not just your computer or smartphone, but speakers, lights, doorbells, windows, curtains, boilers and even your kitchen appliances?
Smart homes work by allowing your devices to communicate, listening to your commands, and relaying information to you.
Making your home ‘smart’ means creating a communication network – usually via an intelligent personal assistant – that connects different appliances and allows them to be remotely controlled, monitored and accessed.
The adaptation of smart homes is often referred to as ‘The Internet of Things’, because it allows you to monitor your devices and appliances remotely – so, no more wondering if you’ve turned everything off before leaving for work!
Which ‘things’ can I connect to the internet?
As smart homes become popular, more and more household items are being adapted to become ‘smart’. From locks that can be controlled via your iPhone to smart fridges that order milk when you’re running low, electronic products are becoming smarter to make our lives easier.
MyMemory has a range of smart home gadgets, from door cameras to Bluetooth lightbulbs. Whether you’re looking for security or synchronicity, you’ll find plenty to make your home smarter at MyMemory.
Are smart homes safe?
Whilst connected devices are obviously more vulnerable than unconnected ones, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, and there are steps you can take to make your home network as secure as possible.
So, yes, your smart home is relatively safe. However, like all things involving the internet, it is important to utilise your gadgets’ security features. By doing so, you limit access points available to hackers and avoid cluttering your system with unnecessary vulnerabilities.
