You create information wherever you are; the question is how and where to store it until you need it next. If you have a server, this is the natural place to store it. If not, it's another reason to invest in a reliable server. Your information is critical - the server should have redundancy, meaning at least one backup of itself that can be restored. Once you've got your information to the server (by copying over the network manually or with automated backup software) you can either backup your server's information manually (which is a rather wasteful endeavor) or choose a server than can do this automatically. For most servers, the minimum requirement here is two hard disks, of which one will be a mirror image of the other (known as RAID 1). If one disk fails and all information is lost, the other retains an exact copy. Given the higher importance of digital information today such as photos, documents, designs and such like, implementing a redundancy system is critical. Aside from storing your important files, web-accessed information such as news can be downloaded via your network and accessed on any smart device such as a tablet or screen. For example a screen in the kitchen to access recipes or check the news at breakfast time.
Smart Home devices range from light switches, thermostats, security systems and even fully functioning robots. Smart technology is being implemented pretty much everywhere in the home right now, and this trend shows no sign of slowing. While the diversity of Smart Home products varies quite considerably, a key factor in its overall success must be "usability". In a highly-competitive market place, any product that is not intuitive to use, the customer will simply switch to a competitor's product... fact!
With the way technology works these days, owning a smart home has become even more exciting. From your home's lighting, temperature control and even safety, the devices you can add are almost limitless. These things can easily make you want to keep adding more. If you already own a smart home and are currently thinking of upgrading it, here's a quick rundown of what you need to do to make your smart home "smarter."
