I look forward to seeing you there!

In this month’s mag we have decided to bring it home. One can never underestimate how valuable it is to have a connected home and how much extra time you can save. From Alexa and Google home giving you travel times to work and daily weather to fridges that let you know when your milk is running low. There has never been a better time to embrace all that home automation has to offer. The best part is that it really doesn't have to cost a kidney to do so.

By reading this month's mag as a digital copy and not on physical paper, you have already begun to embrace one of the key components of smart home automation: convenience. As humans, we are constantly striving to make things simpler, better and faster. The current state of home automation allows us to do so much more, so much quicker and we are now seeing devices becoming more interconnected. Wristwatches can now detect when you have fallen asleep and switch off your lights, lights can change to studio lighting if you are taking a selfie and so much more.

We hope you enjoy this month's mag while I dim the lights, play some music and chat to a friend all using voice commands. Read it here.
