Why Use a Home Automation System?

We are continually bombarded by new innovations, from smart phone apps to fridges that know when you’ve run out of milk, the list is endless. With so much on offer you could be forgiven for questioning how much of this home automation is strictly necessary.

The light switch & the dimmer have served us well for years, so why stop using them? Opening and closing blinds and curtains is not really a hardship, so why get an electric motor to do it instead? The heating, lighting and audio-visual systems in your home work perfectly well as individual systems, do you really need to have greater control of them?

The simple answer to all of these questions is yes, there are significant benefits in bringing these technologies together.

Home automation isn’t just about replacing existing systems for the sake of it, just to be different, “innovative” or “clever”. Home automation goes much deeper than that, changing the way you use your home, making it easier, more efficient and above all, more enjoyable.  It’s about making the most of your living space and  improving how you live in it. It’s about enhancing not only the appearance of your home but also how it operates.

To illustrate these points, let’s delve a little deeper into what this actually means in reality.
