What is Home Automation?

Home Automation is defined as a process or system (using different methods or equipment) which provides the ability to enhance ones lifestyle, and make a home more comfortable, safe, and efficient. Home Automation can link lighting, entertainment, security, telecommunications, heating, and air conditioning into one centrally controlled system. Automation allows you to make your house an active partner in managing your busy life. Your automated home is no longer a passive structure. Instead, it becomes a tool in helping you make the most of your time, enhancing your safety and security, even saving you money on your energy bills.

How does it work?

A central microprocessor (computer) receives signals from controlling devices, then forwards those signals to the appliances and systems in the house you want controlled. The central processor serves as a traffic cop by initiating and/or routing communication signals, panic buttons, TV screens, computers, telephones, hand-held remotes, or other devices.

Total Home Automation wiring adds approximately 3% value to the home.
