If you’re already living in a smart home, then this part isn’t for you. 

Now for those who are new- if you want to build a smart home, then at first you must get a smart home hub. Now, what is that? 

When you connect a smart assistant (e.g. Alexa or Google Home) to a multi-protocol controller, then it becomes a smart home hub. Basically, the hub has to contain Bluetooth, Z-wave, WIFI, and Zigbee radios. 

This hub will control all your smart devices. Here’s the thing- all your smart devices can act on their own but to synchronize everything in one place, you’ll need smart home hubs. 

So, long story short, you must have a home assistant and a smart hub for making a smart home. 

Smart Home Cameras

In some cases, these devices also fall under the outdoor smart home device criteria. 

You’ll get three types of smart cameras in the market. The first one is the outdoor surveillance camera, up next is the doorbell camera and lastly the indoor monitoring camera. 

Outdoor cameras can protect your home from unwanted visitors. Most of these come with night vision. And some of these have once click 911 features along with motion tracking and auto zooming. 

The indoor monitoring cameras are the best smart home gadgets for seniors and children. You can keep track of the inside activities even from your home with these. 

With the doorbell camera, you can see who’s outside and talk to that person without opening up that door.
