The home automation industry is exploding. With the advent of more sophisticated wireless control systems, an automated home is no longer a futuristic goal. It is here.
A truly automated home uses centralized controls to interface with home security systems, appliances, lighting, sprinkler and fire control systems, doors and locks as well as HVAC systems.
Most of these systems can be managed either remotely or on the premises through a cell phone, laptop or tablet.
This access not only provides a higher level of control, but it also helps save money. Lighting and HVAC adjustments help improve the energy efficiency of any home or office.
