Control for your home has many names - automation, integration and smart home technology to name a few. Control simply means having a convenient way to turn one or many devices on or off, up or down, etc.
A control system can be used to:
Individual control for systems is nice, but the real power of home control is the ability to set into motion a sequence of events.
Consider a morning routine: At your preset wake-up time you are gently awoken by your favorite Pandora station. The thermostat has already adjusted the temperature to your desired level. Lights slowly rise in the bedroom and bath to guide your way. Later in the kitchen the shades are opening to let the morning light in as the television tunes to your favorite news channel. When you head out the door the system assures all lights and shades are lowered, music and televisions are off, and the thermostat is adjusted for energy savings. As you are pulling into the office, you receive a text letting you know you left the garage door open. Just a tap of a button on your smart phone app and the garage door is closed for you, leaving your home safe and secure. A bit later you get a call from the housekeeper, who can’t find the house key. In just a few seconds you’ve unlocked the front door, without leaving your desk.
