Smart technology has made many homes more convenient. However, there are still those who avoid it because of the misconceptions surrounding it.
Some smart home technologies can be expensive, but not all upgrades have to be. You can start with budget-friendly smart light bulbs just to see if you like them. Also, some brands do frequent sales and promos. Keep in mind that you don’t have to upgrade every part of your home at once.
Easy to Hack
You don’t have to worry about this if you have a secure WiFi network. Hacking through smart home devices would require physical access or, in rare cases, remote network access.
Hard to Use
Upgrading to a smart home shouldn’t be complicated. You just have to do it one step at a time, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the technology. At WiHome Integration, we will guide you through your custom home automation upgrade. It can get a bit complicated as you add more devices to your home, but it will be a breeze once you get used to them.
Smart Products Always Hear You
Voice assistant devices, such as Alexa and Google Home, only get activated when they hear their trigger words (“Alexa” or “Hey Google”). These devices don’t send information to Amazon or Google unless they hear the said words. You can easily spot a significant change in your internet usage if these devices are uploading everything to the cloud. Both providers let you view and delete every voice command you ever made.
