Smart Tech

Smart technology is a category of devices and software that can connect to the internet or other devices, enabling them to collect and analyze data to make decisions or carry out functions. Voice technology, such as Amazon's Echo and Google Home, has revolutionized the way we interact with technology by allowing users to control devices and access information using voice commands. This has opened up new possibilities for accessibility, and the technology is being implemented in everything from homes to businesses. Smart technology also includes devices such as smart thermostats, security systems, and home appliances, which can be remotely controlled through a smartphone app or voice command.
