Chances are, you’re more familiar with Serial Connections than you realize. This is just a fancy name for a hardwired connection.  Most of our Computer monitors in the last 10 years were a type of Serial connection. It’s the funny adapter with all the pins in it.  You plugged one side into your computer, and the other into your monitor.  That’s a serial connection.

Smart Home systems use serial cables to connect different Smart Devices in the home.  Many people in the industry still prefer this method of connection to all others.  It isn’t susceptible to home network related issues, and it allows for 2-way feedback — When you use your Smart Home App to tell the door to lock, you want to know that the door is now locked.  The door updating your app with its new status is a type of 2-way feedback.  Not all connections support 2-way.  Serial always supports 2-way which makes it a very popular connection choice.
