Hello Fanus:

Here's a PC Mag article on Smart Home Automation that I think explains
things better than I can:

As for a Smart Tv, it needs internet access via your WI-FI setup to work.
Regardless of the OS in play, there's an app that must be installed on your

Hello list
When I read about home automation the term Smart Hub comes up gfrequently.
Can the gurus please explain what is meant by this? I consider to replace my
old tv, so does Smart tv's have built-in smart hubs?
