What is Home Automation?


Home automation (also called domotics) is the residential extension of “building automation”. It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly or disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.

    Thank you to Mr. Van Zyl for the lecture on High Tech today. I have gained a new respect and appreciation for all appliances in and around my house and will take this knowledge into my new career as a professional butler.
