In Short

Home is where the heart is, and it's also where you spend most of your time. Nearly every aspect of the home has become connected — from the living room to the kitchen to the garage. Connected homes have smart appliances, connected lights, streaming media players and much, much more. The home space for connected accessories is growing bigger and bigger. There are already tons of companies getting in on the action with no signs of slowing down. Thermostats, cameras, door locks, scales, kitchen appliances, TV's, stereo's, lighting, and even toothbrushes are all connected, meaning the 'home of the future' is becoming a reality.

Android stretches far beyond just phones and tablets now, and we're seeing it in more and more places. We have Android Auto on the road, and a slew of Android-powered devices in the home. From Nest cameras and thermostats to connected ovens and lights — the home of today is the connected home of the future.
