DIY Smart Home: A Step-by-Step Guide

Smart Home Automation Kitchen

Getting started with home automation can be a daunting task. Every day, more and more products are hitting the market and they're all fighting for our attention. If you're like I was when first becoming interested in smart home technology - you're not quite sure where to start.

In this guide, I'll walk you through what I've learned over the past year as I've pieced together my system. I'll show you what I've installed in our home, and give product reviews where I can. There are some things I'd have done differently, and I'll share those things along the way too.

To get started, I recommend reading through the list of topics in the order they are listed below, but if you are already familiar with some of them, feel free to skip around.

  • Smart Home Hubs
  • Voice Assistants
