Home Automation Technology

Smart homes present some very exciting opportunities to change the way we live and work, and to reduce energy consumption at the same time. Imagine being able to check messages, open windows, operate lights and curtains and monitor how much money your house has made you from your renewable energy system, through your smart phone, from anywhere in the world! Home automation technology has developed so far that the only limit is your imagination.

Internet Connectivity

 Security is one of the biggest reasons why many people are interested in smart homes. If you're away at work or on holiday, making your home seem lived in is a good way to deter intruders. A basic smart home system is a wireless, Internet-connected system that can turn the lights and the TV on and off from anywhere. Effectively, it's a computer-controlled system with an interface you can access over the Web. You can hook up webcams to watch your home (or your pets), switch appliances on and off in real time, or even reprogram the whole system.

Going Green

 Smart homes use 'home automation' technologies to provide home owners with 'intelligent' feedback and information by monitoring many aspects of a home. For example, a smart home's refrigerator may be able to catalogue its contents, suggest menus, recommend healthy alternatives, and order replacements as food is used up. A smart home might even take care of feeding the cat and watering the plants.

Smart home technology

  Smart home technology which may also be termed Home automation is the use of devices in the home that connect via a network, most commonly a local LAN or the internet. It uses devices such as sensors and other appliances connected to the Internet of things (IoT) that can be remotely monitored, controlled or accessed and provide services that respond to the perceived needs of the users.[1] It stands for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. The technology was originally developed by IBM and was referred to as Predictive failure analysis.[2] The first contemporary Smart home technology products became available to consumers between 1998 and the early 2000s.[3] Smart home technology allows users to control and monitor their connected home devices from smart home apps, smartphones, or other networked devices.[4] Users can remotely control connected home systems whether they are home or away. This allows for more efficient energy and electric use as well as ensuring your home is secure. Smart home technology contributes to health and well-being enhancement by accommodating people with special needs, especially older people [5][6][7]. Smart home technology is now being used to create Smart cities.[8] A Smart city functions similar to a Smart home, where systems are monitored to more efficiently run the cities and save money
