What Does “Home Automation” Mean Today?
Home Automation means fully integrated, intelligent control over your home’s functions and features. This includes lighting, comfort, entertainment and security systems. Control is accessible from anywhere, delivered automatically, or by you with one-button simplicity.
An activity as commonplace as watching a movie, can be as effortless as if you had a fully staffed theater. And it should be. Music that matches your mood can welcome you at the door. It can make a suggested playlist based on your listening history.
Lights and blinds work in harmony. They harness natural light and reference the HVAC system for energy efficiency. They respond to everything from the sun’s nevus to changes in the weather. Fountains and landscape ambience can be ready for entertaining at the touch of a button.
Cameras can notify you if movement occurs somewhere it shouldn’t. But, they won’t bother you needlessly when the neighbour’s cat drops by.
Home Automation provides coordinated control of many unique devices with a single command. Because of this, quality Home Automation systems are custom designed to the homeowners individual requirements.
While there is no one size fits all, there are a few areas most Home Automation systems touch on consistently.
