Home Automation

Home Automation is the residential extension of building automation.

 

Home Automation RTI Graphic PanelThe popularity of home automation has been increasing greatly in recent years due to much higher affordability and simplicity though smartphone and tablet connectivity.

Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.

A home automation system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. The techniques employed in home automation include those in building automation as well as the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems, house plant and yard watering, pet feeding, changing the ambiance “scenes” for different events (such as dinners or parties), and the use of domestic robots. Devices may be connected through a computer network to allow control by a personal computer, and may allow remote access from the internet.

 

Home automation refers to the use of computer and information technology to control home appliances and features (such as windows or lighting). Systems can range from simple remote control of lighting through to complex computer/micro-controller based networks with varying degrees of intelligence and automation. Home automation is adopted for reasons of ease, security and energy efficiency.

 

As the number of controllable devices in the home rises, interconnection and communication becomes a useful and desirable feature. For example, a furnace can send an alert message when it needs cleaning, or a refrigerator when it needs service. Rooms will become “intelligent” and will send signals to the controller when someone enters. If no one is supposed to be home and the alarm system is set, the system could call the owner, neighbours  or an emergency number.

  • ~ Nirmesh Varsani (CEO, Kailash Joiners Limited)

    "We needed a CCTV system installed in our business premises. Zimcos AVS not only produced the lowest quotation but also specified higher end products than the other two competitors we had quote for the job. Installation was carried out quickly and professionally, time was taken to show us how to use the system both at the terminal and via our mobile phones and computers. When we had issues with our dynamic IP address Zimcos AVS knew of the problem before we did because of their attention to detail and great aftercare, and the next day came in to resolve issues and again setup all the external devices to veiw the system remotely. We have since had Zimcos AVS back again to quote for a door entry system and these works will be underway soon. It is a relief to find nice honest hardworking people who do not try and pass off faults once the job is completed even if the fault is caused by the internet provider they still endevour to find a solution. I will continue to use and recommend Zimcos AVS to other people."
