The controllers of the home automation systems are like the ‘brain’ of the home automation. They are where the information of all the devices being controlled are scheduled and stored.

The Devices

The devices are the things that are controlled by your home automation systems. They are such things as lights, security cameras, curtains, thermostats, just to mention but a few of them. These devices communicate with the controllers using a specific network protocol so that their operations may be controlled as scheduled in the controllers.
