To do this, we outfitted a home in the heart of San Francisco with smart home devices powered by Xfinity Gig-speed internet and beautiful furnishings from Williams-Sonoma's brands. Xfinity, the presenting sponsor of the home, has also equipped it with their full suite of entertainment, home security, mobile and Wi-Fi products. It's designed exclusively for CNET's Guide to Smart Living, and it's pretty damn cool. Just look at the setup!
But we're not stopping at smart home devices. The Guide to Smart Living will also help to make life easier through life hacks, like decorating tips, laundry hacks and even cooking inspiration (we love you, Instant Pot!).
Here are some features to look forward to:
Smart Home 101: The basics of building a smart home, including choosing a hub and installing some of the easy, simple devices that allow for lots of integrations, like lights and smart switches.
Automate your morning routine: Wake up to the gradual rise of lights (instead of a blaring alarm), immediately get the news, and get the coffee percolating the moment you wake up.
