“How will being able to remotely control your house improve your life?”

There are many ways that remotely controlling your home can improve your life and these include:

  • Security – automated door locks and lighting, or cameras dotted around the home whose pictures you can view in real time on your hand held device. These are just some of the ways that home automation can increase the security of your home.
  • Energy efficiency – being able to remotely control your appliances and home heating together with sophisticated software that monitors their use means that greater control of your home’s energy efficiency can be achieved.
  • Savings – when your home systems and appliances are used only when needed you will see  reduction in your utility bills.
  • Convenience – being able to control your home systems and appliances without actually having to be there – convenient control of your home is at your fingertips!
  • Comfort – ensuring your home is at a comfortable 22 degrees when you set foot through the door and that you bath maintains a temperature to suit you.
  • Peace of mind – no more worrying whether you have left a window open or an iron on after you’ve left home for the weekend.

The list above provides a snap shot of some of the benefits we can experience today, but how will home automation evolve and be part of our lives in the next ten years?
