In simple terms: home automation is just one of the many things that go into a smart home. If that doesn't make the point clearer for you, think of it this way: smart home technology consists of connected devices that run on network technologies such as Bluetooth (in the case of HomeKit) or specialized technologies such as Z-Wave to connect and interact. with other devices in the house.

what about home automation?

It's simple - all your smart devices know how to interact with each other. And you can customize what they convey and do in a way that makes your life easier and more automated.

Let's take a look at some examples.

Using your smartphone to turn on the living room light before opening the front door? This is a smart home job. Set up your home automation system to automatically turn on your living room lights if you open your front door after sunset?

Or better yet, you can program your system so that one of these actions automatically triggers the other.

And the easiest way to do this is to buy all home automation devices on the same platform, like Z-Wave or Home Kit.
