For some it may be something as simple as remote or automatic control of a few lights. For others, security may be the central application.

As a very basic definition, we tend to refer to home automation as anything that gives you remote or automatic control of things around the home.
Adding home automation to an existing home is surprisingly affordable and simple. Our average product costs less than $40 and most require no new wires! We've taken the guess work out of what to buy and created a "Good, Better & Best Product Comparison Chart" for both existing homes (retrofit) and new construction homes. We included everything from lighting control, surveillance, irrigation, whole home audio/video and more!
