Revolution in the home automation system
In the early 1900s when the home automation system was first introduced, there were appliances like washers, dryers, air conditioners, etc., which had to be operated manually. Along with the development of technologies, those appliances later became automatic and so they no longer need to be operated manually. But in the present scenario, due to the development of the internet, computer systems and smartphones, home automation systems have now become the part of our lives.
