For a long time, the Smart Home seemed an incomplete and elusive vision of the future but today it has become an omnipresent reality. The trend towards the networking of light, entertainment, heating and alarm systems in the home is accelerating and the market is in a state of change every day.

homeandsmart needed a dependable Digital Experience Platform (DXP) - eZ Platform to publish its ever changing content of articles, reviews, test results and blogs.

And, since the beginning of 2017, homeandsmart.de has been offering a comprehensive range of information and trends in the Internet of Things (IoT) and on the Smart Home initiatives on the German-speaking web. New products are scrutinized, analyzed and tested by its reviewers. The portal is independent, and is not linked to nor endorsed by any manufacturers or vendors.
