in System
Technology has advanced greatly in the last decade, thereby, giving you various devices and gadgets to make your lives simpler. While robots may not necessarily exist to perform tasks such as washing and cooking, home automation make it a little easier to perform daily chores. For instance, home automation will record a favourite program of your on television while you are out of the house or switch the air conditioner on or even the washer. This technology allows you to take control of various electronic devices from wherever you may be. Home automation system has a few basic requirements such as your network will need an interface card and the computer will require a router to set up LAN. Other connections and hubs include video modulators and distribution panels.

The home automation system consists of 3 components known as the microprocessor, structured wiring and connection center. The main component of these three is considered to be a connection center. Structured wiring needs to be installed around your house and connected to the connection center hubs. The microprocessor is similar to the systems brain and is also placed inside the connection center. The microprocessor can be programmed and it lets you control various electronic equipment including kitchen appliances and even lights in your house. The interface of this system contains remote controls, keypads and touch screens.

The home automation and security systems allow you to perform various security tasks. You can give your house an inhabited look in your absence by switching on the television or the lights. The home automation will provide your home with much needed security and give you peace and comfort while you are out. You can use home automation to even control a security system such as the wireless system and hardwired security system. Of these two the cheaper option is hardwired security, but installation takes a long time on this system. It is also difficult to hide the wiring and maintain a neat look. On the other hand, the hardwired system is said to be more reliable.

The wireless system can be installed easily. The wireless system is also easy to operate as the transmitters, receivers and controllers are convenient to use. Instead of new wiring being installed, the sensors of the wireless system can be placed in areas that are not easily accessible. Wireless systems have become popular in recent times as a result of there being no messy wiring to deal with.

Even if you forget to turn on the security system, you just need to use your home automation system to switch it on from wherever you may be. This allows you to stay relaxed during the entire day and not have to worry about the safety of your home.

Some home automation systems can be activated using voice. If you are groping around in the dark looking to turn on the security system, simply use your voice to switch it on. Enter a particular speech pattern so that the control panel recognizes it as your voice the instant you make a request.
