What Is Home Automation and How Does it Work?

Feb 10, 2016

Have you ever heard of “the internet of things?” It’s the term used to describe the complex and revolutionary phenomenon of technological devices and gadgets linking up, providing us with better control of our homes and making our lives infinitely more convenient.


Home automation is having the ability to control your lights, the volume of your surround sound system, your air conditioner, your washing machine, and even the locks on doors to your home with the touch of a smartphone button. It doesn’t matter where you are or what time it is. You can check in on your home with Foscam video surveillance cameras. You can crank up the A/C 20 minutes before you leave work so you’ll return to an optimally comfortable home. You can check to see if you left any lights on and switch them off after you’ve gone to bed, without having to get up.


Home automation works because technologies have been developed that allow you to use your smartphone as some kind of super universal remote control. A smart home installation professional can configure and streamline your devices so that you can use your phone just like it.


An automated home can enhance several aspects of your life, including convenience, safety, security, energy savings, and your home theater experience. If you’re looking to have place transformed into a state-of-the-art Phoenix smart home, Integrated IO® can help. Call us at (480) 836-1446 to schedule a free Phoenix smart home system installation assessment.
