Ready to get started? Here are a few of the top apps, including home security apps, for smart home management available for your mobile phone.

1. SmartThings

SmartThings gives you the ability to control a variety of systems in your home with an easy-to-use app interface. When paired with compatible devices, your app can turn the lights on and off, lock and unlock the front door, start the washing machine, and even help you monitor your home security system, from the alarm to the security camera.

2. Control4

Similar to SmartThings, the Control4 mobile app acts as a remote control for different systems in your house. Choose a movie on the app and stream it on the family room television, or pick an album to jam out to on your entertainment system. In addition to video and audio controls, the Control4 app also helps you connect to your temperature and security systems.
