At the moment I‘m doing some renovations and aim to include smart plugs and smart switches as an alternative to the standard switches and plugs. To be honest though I’m only dipping my toe into this Smart Home thing at the moment and have more questions than answers !

I’ve been reading about IFTTT and the number of applet available but I’m also looking at Apple’s HomeKit and wondering if it is pretty much the same thing with Apple trying to tie their users into their system. Is it?

Am I right in assuming that anything I plug into a Smart Switch or Socket makes that item ‘Smart?’

Two final questions. What’s your favourite applet ? Do you know of any I can use for foreign language learning.

I have an iPad and iPhone and a PCwhich I hardly ever use
