Wired / wireless internet connectivity – so that they can be monitored, controlled and updated over the internet. They have a number of input ports, so that they can be connected to buttons and sensors.
Output ports, so that they can turn on motors, devices or alarms. The use usually low power devices, meaning they down use a large amount of electricity, especially in standby mode.
