Home automation is increasing in popularity because it allows the home owner control of devices from remote locations. Lighting can be turned on of off via automated timers or controlled directly from you phone from anywhere in the world. You can adjust your heat, feed a cat, turn on a pump, check on your alarm all from within your home or remotely.
A smart home system typically connects controlled devices to a central hub or gateway. The user interface for control of the system uses either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application, or a Web interface, that may also be accessible off-site through the Internet.
