What is a "green home"?
Does it mean Energy Star appliances, a LEED building certification, a programmable thermostat, low-E windows, and low energy bills? Does it mean the building was constructed using recycled and/or local building materials? Does it mean a home that uses solar panels to generate power or rain-catchers to re-use rain? Maybe it means to use “smart home” devices to reduce power consumption. Or maybe it’s just an extension of responsible lifestyle, including how you live, and your impact on future generations.
A “green home” could mean any of these, and so much more.
A "smart home" (also called home automation) supplements a green home's focus by offering automation of routine activities such as lighting, security, power management, entertainment, and comfort. These systems can be operated from a smart phone and rely on devices used to control on/off functions (plugs, light fixtures, etc.). A smart home typically includes sprinklers, appliances, lighting, security systems, and other electronic devices connected wirelessly to a central internet hub to enable remote monitoring and management.
The homeowner enjoys the convenience of operating their house even from another side of the world with the benefit of optimizing energy consumption. A smart home can also learn your preferences and automatically change them based on your presence.
