A simple start
In December of 2012, we began proceedings to buy our first home in Washington state. Shortly after we moved in I started finding areas where I could make common tasks in the home easier. As I recall, while my wife was out of town, I added a calendar based timer to the front lights and occupancy switches with fan timers to the bathrooms. These had smarts, but they were not smart. My first truly smart device was a Nest thermostat… and it was only the beginning.
