What is Home Automation?
Have you ever wondered how nice it would be if you could warm the house before you ever got home, or have the ability to turn off the lights or turn on sprinklers after leaving on vacation? Or ever wanted to control your home theater room’s lights, sound and visual all from the comfort of your theater seat?
The technology is available that allows a homeowner the convenience of home automation. The technology started with the remote control of the television, and with today’s technology can now apply to a myriad of electrical components and appliances.
Electrical mechanisms and appliances in our homes can be controlled remotely through intelligent linking technology. Imagine controlling your home electronics or appliances from anywhere in the world simply through an Internet connection.
For example, you can turn on, adjust, or turn off electronics or appliances such as:
- Indoor and outdoor home lighting
- Climate control with programmable thermostat
- Home security systems
- Garage doors
- Lawn sprinklers
- Televisions within the home
- Home audio systems
- DVR technologies
- Kitchen and household appliances
Whether you are on the road, in your office or even on vacation, you can easily ensure the safety, security, and comfort of your home with your home automation system. It works very similar to a personal command center in your home, from your traveling computer or even your mobile phone.
What are the benefits of home automation?
Home automation decreases the use of energy when electronics or appliances are not needed, therefore saving you money on utility bills. Not to mention the increase in comfort and simplicity, increasing your quality of life. Having all your needs built into one command center in which to manage all the automatic functioning of your home can save tremendous time and increase your peace of mind. Security is increased since the home security system is more convenient for you to check to arm or disarm. You can turn on your lights and thermostat several minutes before getting home, increasing your safety as well as your comfort as you arrive.
