These systems and appliances are then operable using connected devices such as mobile phones, tablets, computers or via web interface software. Smart home technology enables compatibility and interaction through computing technological devices that predict and respond to requirements of the home owner in an effective and efficient manner. Fingerprint identification, retina identification, and key card technology are some of the security-enabled systems used in smart home applications.
