Description

Note: You may experience an issue with the free preview that Udemy support is currently working on. The video transition between lectures is not working in the full screen mode. Please hit the "ESCAPE" key on your keyboard to come out of full screen mode and then select the lecture you would like to preview. That should work. This issue is only with preview. The transition seems to be working fine in the actual course. My apologies for any inconvenience.

Would you like to learn DIY home improvements to turn your home into a Smart Home? How about turning your driveway and living room lights on in the evening automatically to welcome you home? Have you run into the situation when you don't remember whether the garage door was closed? Did your friends and families have to wait outside just because no one was at home to open the door for them. The list goes on and on. A Smart  Home can help you solve all these problems and many more. Are you wondering how to get started?

This course is precisely meant to give you step-by-step guide on how to set up a Smart Home, commonly used Smart Devices and Smart Hubs. We will cover Smart Home setup from scratch - right from planning and budgeting to key concepts. This will be followed by an overview of Smart Hub - the brain of Smart Home. Next, we will dive into commonly used Smart Devices, SmartThings Hub and useful Smart Home scenarios. This will also give a general idea on how to use other Smart Hubs. Continuing our journey to a smarter home, we will go over Amazon Echo's (Alexa) integration with your Smart Home. The course will wrap up with tips on how to manage Smart Home more efficiently. Additionally, the course resources will provide common Smart Home product recommendations that I have found to be useful.
