Getting Started With Home Automation
Key features of most smart home devices can be controlled directly via Wi-Fi and optional mobile apps. This means you can pick up a new one, connect it to your home Wi-Fi, download the companion app and be on your way. Other devices rely on common wireless protocols like Zigbee and Z-Wave to help them communicate.
Building a smart home can feel like a giant logic puzzle with many different products in many ecosystems. But like any other task, breaking the process down into smaller chunks can help you make sense of it all. We recommend starting with one or two gadgets.

Before you buy specific smart home products, remember that you can use a smart plug to easily convert simple devices like lights, fans, and coffee makers into smart devices you can control with your phone. Plug them in, download the app, and turn on your non-smart device. Now you can use a smart plug to add functionality that doesn't exist yet, so you can't, for example, paint lights white. But you can turn them off at certain times. Some smart plugs support voice commands and can even tell you how much power you're using over some time. Other models have a waterproof rating, making them suitable for outdoor spaces such as patios and patios. Most plugs integrate with other smart devices, too, so you can trigger a light to turn on if a security camera detects motion, for example.
Kamonk’s smart plug comes with all of these features, including scheduling timers, geofencing, surge protection, and detailed energy usage report, and it can be controlled via voice assistants.
Smart lighting allows you to control individual lights or groups of lights. You can configure the color, color temperature, and brightness level on your phone to create a comfortable environment for eating, watching movies, reading, or relaxing. It can also turn on and off automatically based on various factors. The best part is that they are just as easy to install as regular lights. If you don't like lighting, consider a smart wall switch that can control existing light fixtures in your home.
Kamonk’s smart LED bulb features over 16 million colors, so you’ll never run out of options. It has smart features like geofencing, music visualization, voice control, and more.
Smart locks allow you to lock and unlock doors from your phone and, in most cases, control temporary or temporary access for friends, family, and employees. They come with various access modes like numeric code, biometric authentication, remote unlocking, RFID card, and a manual key. Most smart locks are complete kits that are relatively easy to install, but some models require only one internal component to be replaced.
