What’s Home Automation?
The simple answer is - anything you want it to be!
Home automation is anything that enables you to use your home’s lighting, heating and appliances more conveniently and efficiently.
It can be as simple as remote or automatic control of a few lights, or it can be a complete system that controls all major parts of your home, custom set to your own personal preference. Home automation is anything that gives you remote or automatic control of things around the home.
