How to “smartify” your home

February 6, 2020 @ 7 pm

Keller Williams NY Realty
120 Bloomingdale Rd. ****location map***
White Plains, NY 10605


Plan now to attend!

Anything and everything is "smart" these days. Smart TVs, smart speakers, smart homes, smart buttons, smart whatchamacallits.

But how do you start?

We'll begin by demonstrating how to set up a smart plug and a smart cam. If time permits, we'll also talk about IFTTT (IF This Then That) and how it makes your life, not just your home,  smarter.




Oh, and one more thing...................
