What is a smart home? A smart home is a home that makes use of advanced automation systems that help inhabitants monitor and control the functions of the building.
With a lot more things being internet-enabled, the market will evolve into a “Ubiquitous Home” setup – where devices can soon learn and adapt to the user’s behaviour or life style and be more responsive to their preferences.
Home automation allows homeowners to take control of the basic functions of the house through the use of computers or mobile devices such as door locks, lighting control, appliance control, and security surveillance. These automated devices can be accessed remotely or set to operate automatically through any internet-enabled device, whether a smart phone, a tablet or a laptop. Advanced home automation has paved the way for people to monitor and control their homes even when they are away.
With the growing popularity and need for home automation, you can expect more features to be developed, continually improving home security and convenience.
