What is Home Automation ?

Essentially, all you need is a smartphone or a tablet with the appropriate app to switch things ON / OFF (lighting and heating elements) or Decrease / Increase (Temperature of AC or Volume of music system) as you wish. You can even use home automation to dim lights or set them to desired brightness while you are relaxing on your recliner or control them when you are away or on vacation.
With home automation, you can also integrate the security systems and it is possible to remotely lock and unlock your home and check the status of it. This is an awesome feature available to lock the door for those who may have forgotten to lock the house while stepping out in a busy day or while going out on vacation. You can check the status of it too remotely.
Home automation is a step towards what is referred to as the "IOT - Internet of Things," in which everything has an assigned IP address, and can be monitored and accessed remotely.
The first and foremost obvious recipients of this approach are "smart" devices and systems that can be connected to a LAN (local area network), via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. However, electrical systems and even individual points, like light switches and electrical outlets, were also integrated into home automation networks, and enterprises have even explored the potential of IP-based inventory tracking. Although the day is still far off when you'll be able to use your mobile browser to track down a lost shoe, home networks are capable of including an increasing number of devices and systems.
