Energy Efficiency at the Push of a Button!
Newer home automation systems make it easier than ever to achieve energy efficiency at home. In fact, it’s never been easier to control your home’s core systems from one central point, various points throughout your home or even via the Internet. Among the more common automated systems found in homes today are:
Heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems (HVAC)
HVAC automation can include temperature and humidity control. Via an Internet controlled thermostat, a homeowner can remotely control the home’s temperature – turning down the heat in winter when the house is empty or shutting off the air conditioning in the summer. This is not only good for the environment; it can also help you save a considerable amount of money in energy costs.

Controlling all your devices through one remote cuts down on both clutter and energy use, thereby increasing your home energy efficiency.
Automated security systems are also very popular but can be expensive. However, they encompass many valuable features such as:
