Forbes contributor Harold Stark walks readers through the process of building the best infrastructure to support a new home. The root infrastructure required for the proper functioning of any smart home is the home network, a giant mesh-like system that connects all the various smart appliances from toasters to refrigerators. A variety of home network technologies are available from wired and wireless to wired-and-wireless, the best known being Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You’ll also need a smart home hub that acts as a central communication system between the different devices in your network and allows you to issue commands and get results.
