Automation can be viewed in various settings and scenarios. Smart home energy and security automation is one example. Basically automation refers to the control of various things in a house such as the house’s lights, security and surveillance systems, home theatre system, thermostats, phone systems, and even sprinklers in your garden or lawn.
The most popular form of automation is the control of security systems and surveillance systems. This includes both the alarm system, and also any surveillance cameras that one may have installed. Generally, these systems also include what is often referred to as access control systems, where one will be able to open, unlock, or close doors even if he is not at home.
