One aspect of life that technology has revolutionized is how you live at home. With smart gadgets and systems, millions can automate and switch up their quality of life. Fortunately, your luxury condo in Manila can also become a futuristic haven by purchasing smart appliances. To help you live in the future, this guide will list down smart gadgets you should have in your luxury home!

Understanding Smart Gadgets and Smart Systems

It sounds tongue in cheek, but a smart home is made up of smart gadgets that communicate with each other to create an ecosystem that meets the homeowner’s needs. A smart device interacts and shares information with the user and other smart devices located in the smart home.

Meanwhile, a smart home system is a branch of the IoT, a network of smart devices that exchanges information without the need for human intervention. Simply put, smart gadgets are devices that you can control independently (usually via an associated app), while a smart system is a centralized platform where users can manage all of them.

If you’re a fan of Samsung’s ecosystem, it will be best if you purchase smart devices that are compatible with it. Once you’ve booted them up, you can easily control things by connecting them to the SmartThings App!
