Home automation allows individuals to automatically control appliances and security systems within their home using technology. This can be uniquely customised and also involve integration and communication between devices, remote access and unified control for all devices. 

Home automation encompasses the convenience of managing all devices and also saves time and energy. Functions that can be controlled using home automation include security, domestic cooling and heating systems, soft furnishings including curtains and blinds, lighting, audio and video, garden irrigation and watering systems. In addition to making life more convenient, home automation also brings sophistication and efficiency to the home.
