New - Home Automation Glossary

Ever wondered what a ‘Mesh Network’ is, what’s the difference between a ‘Group’ and ‘Scene’ or what a ‘Gateway’ does?

You’re probably not alone – home automation has lots of new words and terms that can be confusing, especially if you’re new to the technology.

Our new Glossary provides a simple, and hopefully clear, explanation for all the common words that you’ll come across when looking at home automation technology. Making it easy for you to understand how everything works and enable you to choose the products that best fit your needs.

So whether you’re a ‘newbie’ or a home automation veteran, I’m sure the glossary will be able to answer your questions.

You might also want to take a look at our resources section that includes more detailed explanations and comparisons of key technologies such as Z-Wave, ZigBee, and LightwaveRF.

If you have a suggestion for a word that you think should be added to the glossary or you’ve got an idea for a new resource section, let me know – leave a comment to this post.
