Home Electronics automation is automation of the various systems within a home. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), entertainment systems, security and access control systems, and telecommunication systems to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.
The popularity of home automation has been increasing significantly in recent years due to much higher affordability and simplicity through internet and centralized connectivity. In a nutshell, a home automation system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. Devices may be connected through a computer network to allow control by a personal computer and may allow remote access from the Internet. Through the integration of information technologies, systems within the home are able to communicate in an integrated manner which results in convenience, energy efficiency, and safety benefits for the home owner.
