We are in a smart home era! Our homes in Springfield, Mo and Surrounding Areas are becoming SMART! Now, with the development of smart home products, our homes want to become an even greater role as they know our habits, simplify our lives, and SAVE US TIME AND MONEY!

The editors at CNET.COM set these standards for smart homes:
*SMART HOME, A HOME THAT IS EQUIPPED WITH NET-WORK CONNECTED PRODUCTS! (i.e., "smart products" connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or similar protocols) for controlling, automating, optimizing, functions such as temperature, lighting, safety, security, or entertainment, either remotely by a phone, tablet, computer, or with a separate system within the home itself. It must have a cable, satellite, or DSL internet connection and equipped with at least three smart home features including security/and or temperature."
