Home Automation

Home automation is the system by which your heating, lighting, appliances and other systems are centrally controlled to provide more convenience, energy efficiency and security. This concept was initially brought in when managing the environment inside big high-rise buildings. Latterly, it was introduced to single homes as well.

Residential automation integrates all the electrical devices in the house and allows you, the home owner, to control activities even like watering the yard, pet feeding, changing the amount of lighting to create a different ambiance. Everything is connected via a computer network and can be controlled by a home computer or even remotely by the internet. Home automation is built in during construction by planning out the wiring and accessibility through the walls, power outlets, number of rooms etc. to accommodate the technology that is required. Wireless systems can however be fitted into existing homes as they reduce the need for wiring changes. These systems communicate via existing power wiring or infrared signals that have a central controller. However, there may be a need to install extra network sockets in the rooms where you have appliances and AC power receptacles.

Home Automation Uses

The ability of household devices to interconnect, talk to each other and be controlled via monitoring signals takes away from yet another mundane task, which is the physical monitoring and controlling of all these devices. These systems are very useful for home owners who have young children in the house. The rate of accidents can be managed and even reduced. Furthermore, these remote control networks are invaluable for older or disabled people who are restricted in their movement.

Home automation is not a D.I.Y task, and MUST be installed and maintained by professional electrical contractors who are familiar with the process.
