In a nutshell home automation systems are designed to provide automatic control over things such as the lighting, heating and security of your home. Wherever you are in the world, you’ll be able to switch on the lights or programme the dishwasher, simply by using a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Whereas once wireless home automation was the stuff of science fiction, it is now a simple, affordable way to do all this and more.

The benefits of home automation

One of the most significant benefits of home automation is the convenience it can offer. We all lead busy lives and the chances are you’ve had times when you’re delayed at work, only to remember that you need to be at home to let the kids in. Home automation makes it possible to remotely deactivate the intruder alarm, turn on the heating or switch on the lights.

The convenience of home automation can also help to save you money by reducing and monitoring the amount of power you use. You could, for example control your central heating so that it switches on just as you leave work, or if you for get to turn the lights off, you could switch them off remotely. In addition, appliances can be programmed to run when most convenient for you, or at times of the day when electricity is cheaper.

Another significant benefit of home automation is in terms of home security. Lights can be turned on and off whilst you’re away, helping to make your home look occupied, whilst it’s also possible to remotely activate or deactivate a security alarm. Some automation systems can be designed to interact with a CCTV system, allowing you to check on your home from wherever you are in the world.
