Make your home smart with these devices

The home automation sector is growing rapidly in Spain, so much so that by 2025, 21% of homes will be smart. The main reasons to start designing a smart home are privacy and homeowner security. However, there is a third element that is a main driver of this boom in technology: savings.

According to the Spanish Home Automation Association (Cedom) the savings in a house when using smart technology is 30%, as the automation systems allow you to control the different devices you have installed in your home. But what are they?


One of the most common devices in Spanish homes is the smart thermostat. This is a device that allows you to control and monitor the temperature in your home from your mobile phone or tablet.

Thanks to the Internet connection, it uses sensors and learning technology to adapt to your heating and air conditioning patterns. Thus, it will be able to adjust the temperature automatically.

Some of the benefits offered by a smart thermostat are:

  • Automatic programming: You can program it to adjust the temperature at different times of the day.
  • 24-hour control: You can control it from home, from work or while shopping.
  • Savings: Thanks to the above benefits, you will notice big savings on your electricity bill at the end of the month.
  • Warnings: Some thermostats incorporate a system of warnings and notifications in case the temperature does not adjust to the determined range.


Smart plugs have become one of the most versatile devices on the market, as you can control everything connected to them: from your TV, to your mobile phone, to your heating. We can control them on and off whenever we need to, even when we are away from home.

We can find, on the one hand, sockets with timers, useful for configuring a device that you need at a specific time. On the other hand, sockets with a programmer, used in many offices to regulate the lights and control their switching on only during the week. And finally, sockets with remote control, either by voice or by remote controls.


What would it be like to be in bed reading a good book and not having to get out of bed to turn off the light? Now that is possible thanks to the smart light bulbs that many brands have launched in the home automation market.

LED smart bulbs not only make everyday life more comfortable. You will also notice significant savings on your electricity bill. In addition, other benefits are:

  • You can adjust the brightness and colour of the light at any time.
  • You can create different customised lighting scenes
  • You can program the bulbs to turn on and off at specific times.
  • You can turn off the light if you are away from home.


Last but not least, smart security cameras have become the best ally to protect a home. Thanks to artificial intelligence technology, they capture all kinds of faces, objects and movements and then send alerts to homeowners and authorities if they detect anything suspicious.

Other benefits include:

  • Control access to the property at all times, preventing any unwanted intrusion.
  • Bidirectional communication that allows a natural and quality sound.

Since 2015, the number of homes with smart home systems has increased by a factor of 2.6 worldwide. The home automation and smart technology sector is booming. And you, are you thinking of incorporating any of these devices in your home?
