Commercial Products

 Various commercial products are available but most use proprietary network communications to connect to their proprietary controllers.  The controllers allow for connecting to multiple remote sensors or actuators and usually have proprietary iOS or Android apps that interface with them.  Buying from multiple vendors can be costly as you will usually need multiple controllers that cannot talk with one another.

Recently there have been newer controllers that can interface with multiple vendors networks and allow you to view into your automated devices.
