WHAT IS HOME AUTOMATION?
Home automation is building automation for a home, also referred to as a smart home. A home automation system will control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, window blinds and appliances to name a few. It could also include home security such as access control and alarm systems. When connected with the Internet, all of these devices are part of the Internet of Things.
A home automation system typically connects controlled devices to a central hub. The user interface to control the items are either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application and may also be accessible off-site through the Internet.
