Fibaro lite review
The fibaro home lite did not impress me quite a lot in terms of its design. It is a bit bulky and large and takes up a lot of space. Therefore, I wouldn’t give it much praise in terms of aesthetics. On the other hand, its features are simple and useful. It has a variety of ways in which you will be able to control your devices. Which increases convenience and is also a convincing point for someone looking to buy.
I’d be happier if they increase the strength of connectivity, by which I mean to refer to the range of the device. Also, a significant change in the design and size of the device would be very much welcome. Other than that, it is quite a useful device and does deserve a buy.
