Today, almost anything can be connected to the internet, and with this connection comes the ability to turn your bedroom lights off from another country, tell your thermostat to create a weather-appropriate lighting scheme, and answer the door without ever leaving your armchair.This book introduces you to Alexa, Siri, and every major technology competing to smarten your home and improve your life. You'll learn how to choose between them, how to optimize their function, and how to avoid the pitfalls that cause new adopters to wish they'd never let a computer into their home.
