Smart home products rely on efficient connections between multiple devices and their varying protocols and standards. As a rule of thumb any manufacturer uses one of the main protocols (Zigbee, Z-Wave, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi. See further information) and controls everything via an app. This is a standard method and can be seen in the Smart Homes Installer showroom.
However, if you wanted to use multiple devices from a variety of manufacturers e.g. wanted to use a lighting controller alongside a Smart thermostat, a more sophisticated level of overall control is needed. This is where the Smart Home controller comes in. Increasingly a Smart Home controller will operate across multiple protocols and control all aspects of the house. The controller can detect if you’ve left the house and ensure the lights are off, the thermostat is lowered, and the security camera is operational.
