As society becomes more technologically advanced, technology plays an ever‐growing role in our personal lives and even our homes. Around the world, home automation is becoming a common practice, as more and more people are using home automation to control the systems that make their homes more comfortable.
Home automation works by controlling multiple systems in our homes that do the jobs that we would normally do manually. Home automation takes care of a number of activities in the house. For example, home automation can be used to turn lighting and HVAC systems on and off on a timer. Home security and sprinkler systems can also be automated. More advanced operations can be carried out as well, like sensing the presence of a person in a room or adjusting the volume of the music according to the day of the week and the time.
In many ways, it is much more efficient and cost‐effective to install home automation in a house during construction as many systems require room above ceilings and behind wall in order to save space. However, homes that have already been built can still incorporate home automation in a less intrusive way through wireless systems.
