Although SmarterHomeAutomation.com launched in August 2015, you’ll now find here, a number older reviews and articles relating to home automation and the smart home, going back more than a year. Those were originally posted on Projector Reviews, our oldest website (since 2000), but were been moved here when this site was completed.
Projector Reviews & Smart Home Automation
Welcome to Projector Reviews newest endeavor: Smarter Home Automation. Home automation has routinely started in many homes in the home theater, with people pressing a button turn on a home theater projector, that also triggered, lowering of a screen, dimming lights… As our projector review site tackled more home projectors suitable for rooms other than dedicated theaters, it seemed natural for us to consider expanding beyond projectors and to look at how to control other aspects of today’s home, aka Smart Home. Out of that has come this new website, which we expect will quickly grow in size and content.
It is our goal to be the most insightful website around, to help you keep up on trends, and to determine though our reviews, which are the best products – lighting, thermostats, locks and other security, sensors, shades, appliances, and more for you to choose from.
The "Dream Home Project"
Defining "Smarter" Home Automation
“Smarter” Home Automation: Automating a home in an affordable manner. In this Dream Home project we may not end up with the ultimate integration – a single application (such as Crestron), to rule every device and event. Although that’s ideal, if it takes two or three “apps” to automate the whole home, we think most folks will find that a fine trade-off if the alternative is a far more extensive, but drastically more expensive system. We want to home automate spending a few thousand here and there, rather than tens and tens of thousands. We’ll do our best to deliver on that.
Count on it. -art
