Technology is paving the way for Smart Homes, but fancy tools can cost a fortune. However, there are still low-cost gadgets that will help transform your house into a “smart enough” home.

Install automatic motion sensors to turn on lights when you enter a room. Check out the Lutron wireless remote, which lets you set mood lighting and turn lights on and off from anywhere in the room.

Temperature controls also make it easy to make your home comfortable. A Sensi thermostat uses Wi-Fi so you can adjust the temperature from an app on your phone or computer.
