Welcome to Target's new Open House. Designed to showcase how smart home tech works together, the retail giant's newly opened space in San Francisco is a place to learn about both new and up-and-coming connected gadgets.
One of the products on display in the Garage, the Brilliant Control replaces a standard light switch. You can then use the touchscreen to control your smart home gear. It even works with Amazon's digital assistant Alexa.
This is actually Target's second such installation. The first Target Open House was similarly themed, but both the Garage and the Dream Home are brand-new. Above this Open House is a Target retail branch, and surely Target would love nothing more than for a product to get positive feedback in the Garage, move to the Dream Home and the Forum, and finally earn its way onto the shelves of Target stores.
