Boost Your Smart Home With TE Connectivity

Just think about how you interact with your home environment now, and compare that to 10 years ago. As I sit here and write this from the office, I can also communicate with my home many miles away. For example, I can monitor and control its environment, and interact with the devices inside and outside. Connectivity is the key to all that the smart home has to offer. It allows us to control devices, turning them on and off via an app on a smartphone, monitoring the energy consumption of devices and equipment, or having your white goods send out messages to inform you that you may need to consider something, like changing a filter. Yes, connectivity is so important, so with this in mind who better to speak to than TE Connectivity and discover just how they help to make the smart home smart.
