Bodkin Technologies need a better way to operate and control their smart home devices because their customers currently use a rudimentary web application, initially developed to test the functionality of the connected devices, making it less user-friendly.
The application enables you to control all your equipment at home from anywhere in the world through your smartphone tablet or PC.
