Home automation is a broad term that can apply to many home systems. We think of it as easy, all-purpose control that makes life simpler, safer, more fun, and saves energy-all at the same time!
A typical home has many systems in it. These can include whole house music, intercom, distributed video, networking, security, lighting control, heating and cooling systems, cameras, pool and spa control, gate control, and so on. A home automation system ties all of these systems together so you can interface with them from one point of contact.
With custom programming, you can automate all kinds of things to make your life simpler and make your home a safer place. For example, custom programming can allow events to happen contingent upon other events. A fire code from the alarm system can cause the home automation system to tell the lighting system to flash your exterior lights so your home is easy for emergency personnel to find. The fun of custom programming comes when you are ready to relax or entertain and pressing one button starts a whole sequence of events: for instance, setting lighting scenes, starting music in the appropriate rooms, and telling landscape lights to stay on late since you’re having a party.
Autonomous and Collaborative
A complete home automation system includes and communicates with all of the subsystems mentioned above. Any single subsystem can operate independently in a well-designed automation system. By using wireless touch panels, wall mounted touch panels or keypads, and even iPhone or iTouch, you tell your home automation system how to control all of your subsystems.
