What is Home Automation?

Home automation is the high-tech way of transforming a traditional home into a smart home. Basically, it is technology that gives homeowners remote or automatic control over devices and appliances within their home. An automated home controls security, temperatures, audio/video, lighting, and more.

Homeowners everywhere are discovering the advantages that home automation offers.  Convenience, security, and value are just of few of the benefits. Whether you are updating your existing or building a new construction, home automation makes life easier.

Remote Access: With remote access, your automated home can be controlled easily from your cell phone or computer, even when you are miles away. Total control of your home is always at your fingertips. Having your home programmed to perform routine functions automatically saves you time and effort.

Energy Efficient: By managing the energy-consuming devices and appliances in your home, you are able to reduce the amount of energy you consume.  This technology allows homeowners to regulate the operation of lights, HVAC system, entertainment components, water heater, and many other household devices so that they are only on when needed. This type of automation is not only good for your wallet, it is good for the environment as well.

Improve Safety: Home automation means that you never have to come home to a dark house.  You can program your exterior lights to turn on as you enter the driveway and your interior lights to turn on as you enter the door.  When you leave town, you can have your lights turn on and off throughout the day to appear as if someone is home.  Plus, your system will notify you via email or phone call if something happens while you are away.
