What is a Home Automation System?

Home automation is the automatic and electronic control of household functions, features, and appliances through a control system. This control system uses hardware and interfaces to integrate devices and allow them all to be controlled by a computer or a remote. You can control your home entertainment system, heating and cooling, lighting, security cameras or locks, and more through a control system. Computers, smartphones, and tablets are used as tools to control your home system, wherever you may be.

The popularity of home automation can be credited to the several advantages it offers.

  • Comfort – Keep your home at the right temperature. Adjust the sound or lighting to fit the occasion, all with a touch of a button.
  • Safety – An electronic security system monitors your home and alerts you to unwanted guests. You can remotely lock doors and turn on lights.
  • Energy Savings – Turn off appliances or lights when not in use or utilize timers to turn them on and off. Control electronic shades and blinds to allow in natural light when desired at various times of the day.
  • Adaptability – Technology changes rapidly. Most systems allow you to expand your system and are flexible to adapt to future technology. Upgrading or adding to your system becomes easy.
