While at his home in Wellesley, Richard Kasper sometimes wonders whether he forgot something at his summer residence on Cape Cod.
Did he turn the thermostat down? Leave too many lights on? Is the garage door open?
Now Kasper can use remote-control "smart home" technologies on his iPhone to check whether he did indeed adjust the thermostat or dim the lights before leaving his Chatham home. With a few more taps on his iPhone, he can then make any necessary adjustments, such as closing the garage door or turning off some lights.
