What is Home Automation or a Smart Home?

Home automation is a system of devices interconnected via wired or wireless connection to a central hub that can be controlled locally or remotely by the home owner. Whether you are home, at work, on vacation, you have full control over your entire home. Some devices that can be connected to the system are entertainment systems, lighting, security, climate control, sprinkler systems, or shades/blinds.

Home automation has come a long way in recent years and is now within reach of general consumers, not just commercial businesses. The cost for these systems has dropped drastically, and now almost anyone can attain a smart home while increasing the value of their home.
