Choosing a security system for a home, in most cases we do not even think that the same system can perform elementary tasks to automate our home.Today, more and more attention is paid to home automation solutions, or, as they call it, "smart Home automation". Endless possibilities - from simple control of lighting, heating or music playback to automatic delivery of food to your home when the refrigerator is empty. And you don't have to be at home to do this - it's all done remotely.
From household devices to smart home
So how did we achieve this? It has come a long way since the early 20th century, when the first household appliances appeared. Today it is no longer possible to imagine a house without a washing machine, microwave oven or even a refrigerator! We take all of these things for granted, as well as any improvements to our living conditions, such as central heating or air conditioning. But we still have to manage all this manually - and this is where automation comes to the rescue.
Technologies merge and become available
In the late 90s and early 2000s, the popularity of home automation increased significantly. Manufacturers saw the potential of this large market and began offering affordable solutions.The next important step was the development of Home automation networks, as well as their closest "relative" - the "Internet of Things" (English "Internet of Things"). From now on, it has become possible to combine all automated devices into one network and manage them centrally, from one PC, ideally via a Wi-Fi network. Add to all this the rapid development of smartphones, and as a result, homeowners can manage their property at any time, from anywhere in the world.
