26.11.10 Home Automation Scotland
The development of home automation has made it possible to automate most things within the home. The sky is the limit when it comes to the possibilities of home automation. However, your budget might not reach these limits. Take a look at the advances you can make with home automation technology.
Use home automation to set the scene in your home with a range of different light settings. The lighting in your home can be easily altered to a setting to reflect what you are doing within your home. Lighting design will provide the perfect lighting for scene setting:
- Watching television
- Romantic dinners
- Dinner parties
- Office lighting
Lighting automation can also be set so your hall light comes on when there is movement in the middle of the night or when your car reaches the driveway the driveway lights automatically turn on. Special settings can also be set up to alternate the lighting within your home when you are on holiday or out late in the evening.
Home automation can hugely increase the security of your property (domestic or commercial). Home security systems can be wired into your home automation system so they are always at your disposal.
You can check your security systems on your television whilst watching your favourite soaps or check up on your home whilst you are busy working late at the office. Lights can also automatically come on in your property and garden to warn off unwanted intruders. Home automation gives you extra piece of mind about the security of your home.
