By Carl Davis

In these times of stressful jobs and family lives, there is a need for a little more comfort. It may be the ability to turn down the lighting on movie night from the phone. It could also be a voice-activated coffee maker. How about house robots? These are great advancements in home technologies. This is a guide on how to make your home smart. Of importance is to avoid rookie mistakes. Meticulous precision is required where technology is concerned lest it turns around and smacks everyone in the face.

It is important to look at every room individually. Consider the needs of that room. Think about the ways in which the room is functionally deficient. How then can technology step in to change that? This step allows for all sorts of wild dreams. Anything one might dream up is allowed in this step. Hell, even think about a house robot. It is all apt.

This step shakes everything up with reality. Think about how practical it would be to get a house robot to answer the door. How necessary is it? Where does it rank on the scale? What are features more important than this? Make a list with two bunches. One with the wild dreams that are not entirely necessary. Another with the practical stuff like security and automatic coffee maker or motion sensitive lighting.

Once the above step is complete, it is time to draw up a budget. Now, financial capability varies. A budget ensures that one does not get unnecessary gadgets and leaving out those that could actually be of use. The internet will provide ballpark figures in terms of gadget pricing and installation.

The system should allow for software upgrades that are inexpensive. For example, when an app on the phone needs an upgrade, one can just log into the play store and download a new version without having to get a new phone. The smart system should work in the same way.

This reduces the chances of human error-caused glitch. The gradual process might also highlight areas in need of technological intervention that might have been bypassed before.

Having a smart system could definitely earn one a spot on the cool wall of fame. However, this should not be a motivation. Vane reasons could easily lead t detrimental decisions regarding the system.
