British Gas has come under fire from angry consumers after their Hive smart home devices, including security cameras, were switched off after being discontinued.

Smart devices are a state-of-the-art technology that allow homeowners to directly control technology like their central heating system or security setup through wifi and their phones. As a result more and more homeowners are now looking at how to design a smart home as part of their renovation and self build projects.
