Modern technologies are penetrating every sphere of our lives, and the household is no exception. Today no one is surprised by smart appliances that can be controlled via your smartphone from any place. But what if you would like to manage your place as a system and have control over multiple appliances via a single application? Aqara smart things come to rescue and help create a smart ecosystem in your house.
Various smart scenarios can be pre-programmed with sensors and controllers joined together by control centers (hubs). For example, with a smart thermostat you can control the temperature remotely or set it to a certain level. This way you can not only optimize your heating, but also reduce the bills for it. Smart relays are installed into socket boxes and make lighting and any plugged appliances controllable.
Smart sensors expand the possibilities of a smart home even more. Motion sensors installed in rooms can send signals to turn the lights on when someone comes in. With door and window open sensors, you can create a home security system that will send a notification if someone comes in and also sound an alarm. The scenarios can be customized according to your needs and are numerous.
