"Smart home" is a pretty broad term, covering a huge number of connected gadgets, systems and appliances that do a wide variety of different things. "Home automation" is slightly less broad, referring specifically to things in your home that can be programmed to function automatically. In years past, those automation's were pretty basic -- lamp timers, automated holiday lighting and so on -- but that's fast been changing thanks to the recent sprawl of smart-home tech aimed at mainstream consumers.
The possibilities are immense, ranging
from lights and locks to cameras and
coffee makers. The common denominator
is automation and a promise that these
devices can save you time, save you
money or make your life a little easier.
An automated lamp might turn on by
itself as soon as you walk into the room.
An automated thermostat might turn the
air conditioning up when it detects you've
left for the day, then back down when it
thinks you're on your way back.
