An introduction to Smart Home

It’s quick and easy to set-up, so you’ll have more time to do the things you love, with the added comfort and security of knowing that the control of your home is in your hands, wherever you are.  


All our Smart Home products are compatible with Zigbee Ø  enabled products and associated apps, including our Lidl Home app.
