Being the tech-geek I am, it might actually surprise you that I did not start with any home automation until end of last year. Most of my friends were early adopters, but it never really seemed necessary to me. It was only last year when I attempted dipping my toe in the smart home “pool”, and oh boy, dip I did. What started with borrowing some old Philips HUE bulbs from a friend, quickly became a first purchase of my own.
What happened exactly between a couple of months ago and now, is still unclear. All I know is that when someone rings the doorbell, speakers announce it to me. When evening comes, lights eliminate the living room as my curtain automatically closes. And when I wake up, music starts playing by itself. I might be a late bloomer in the smart home ecosystem, but boy am I a fan 🙂
