The latest entry into the smart home market is the Eaton Home Automation Hub. 

Eaton says that its Home Automation Hub is a solution that provides professional integrators, home builders, and homeowners the ability install and control a variety devices. 

"As connected home demand continues to increase, builders are challenged to deliver reliable, intelligent devices that can integrate into a central hub, which can add significant complexity to the home building or remodeling processes," states Grayling Love, product line manager, Eaton. 

"With the introduction of the new Eaton Home Automation Hub, we hope to dramatically increase the adoption of connected home technology and educate builders and contractors that installation doesn't have to be complicated."
