A home automation system is a technology through which you can control the household appliances and security system of your house through your PC or smartphone using the internet. The first home automation systems or appliances were introduced in the 1900s. The first general home automation system was developed in 1975; but with the advancement of technology, the home automation systems available today have become way better.
Features of the home automation system
- All the appliances to be controlled by a home automation system are connected by the help of Wi-Fi.

Ease of life due to the home automation system
As a home automation system allows you to control many home appliances through remote controls or PCs or smartphones, you need not keep wasting your time by checking the appliances yourself every now and then. Thus, with the home automation system, all the controls of your home appliances stay at your fingertip.
If the security system of your house is integrated with the home automation system, you can always keep an eye on the perimeters of your house and get to know if there is any unrecognized movement nearby. So you need not worry about the security of your house at all.
The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning in your home can also be controlled by this system. So you no longer need to be sweaty when in your home or live in a cold house or feel suffocated in your house, as these parameters are automatically controlled by the home automation system as per your needs.
