What is home automation?
Home automation is the process of using technology to connect home appliances and devices to perform actions autonomously. The development of these home automation devices has been called IoT (internet of things). IoT allows for your home appliances to become interconnected and connected to the internet allowing for unified control of these devices through apps, voice assistants and automation software. We have seen many devices developed over the last few years that will enable your home to become connected, these include:
- Lights, the lights in your house can become connected and be easily controlled by voice assistants, controls, and apps. You have full control over the colour, brightness and even timings.
- Blinds/Curtains. Automatically opening and closing blinds and curtains allows for the user to have hard to reach windows, like sky-lights, covered when required.
- Doors/Security. Security is one of the significant factors when it comes to your home. There have been significant developments in security devices that keep your home secure, through smart doors, doorbells and even CCTV systems.
There are many more smart home devices that homeowners are starting to implement in their homes.
