Smart home and automation - South Africa sales
Home automation gives you access to control devices in your home from a mobile device anywhere in the world.
The term may be used for isolated programmable devices, like thermostats and sprinkler systems, but home automation more accurately describes homes in which nearly everything -- lights, appliances, electrical outlets, heating and cooling systems -- are hooked up to a remotely controllable network.
From a home security perspective, this also includes your alarm system, and all of the doors, windows, locks, smoke detectors, surveillance cameras and any other sensors that are linked to it.
A smart home is a home equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by smartphone or computer.
Smart home may also be controlled with voice commands. These devices may be controlled by a network connected voice command device that links Amazon Alexa (Amazon Echo) or Google (Google Assist).
Smart devices may either be controlled in real time or may be scheduled to perform certain function at set times.
