a.k.a. domotics

Internet of Things comes to life. Home automation refers to automatic and electronic control of household features (lighting), appliances, and activity. Various control systems are utilized in this residential extension of building automation.

Some components of an automated home may include the centralized control of appliances, windows, lighting, surveillance cameras, security locks on doors and gates, and HVAC systems (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). The advantage of an automated home is the ease with which functionality can be managed on an array of devices including desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
