Smart Home Hubs
Most smart devices need to operate via a home hub using an operating system, so to take advantage of the latest technology solutions, you’ll need to start by choosing your hub. Probably the best-known system is Amazon’s Alexa which works through hubs such as the Echo and Echo Dot. However, other systems, such as Google Assistant (via the Google Home Hub), and the Apple HomeKit, allow you to control your smart devices with an iPad, iPhone or Mac.

Of course, home hubs can be used to manage a whole host of tasks. Take a look at these 15 unexpected ways to use Alexa.
