									Home Automation Controls<+>Home Automation Controls and
Projects<+><+><+><br><br>It's always a typical situation when you arrive
home from work. The lights are out, the house is dark, and it's cold even
in the inside. For most people, this is a natural scene but for those who
are tired of the same old thing and want to experience change, that's
already possible.<br><br>With today's advanced technology, you don't have
to come home in a dark and cold place anymore. All you lights, interior
or exterior, will automatically turn on when you arrive from work. Your
home will welcome you with just the right temperature, even your garage
door will open for you. Impossible?<br><br>Today, that is very much
possible. Homes of the future, as many people prefer to call it, are now
more affordable. Before when there were a few suppliers of home
automation devices, the prices of these cool devices are rather
expensive. Only the well-to-do families can afford this luxury. But now,
it's not just about luxury. In fact, time will come when home automation
will be a necessity.<br><br>Why should you automate your home? The three
good reasons are convenience, security, and savings.<br><br>Let's start
with convenience. If you have an automated home, you can save lots of
effort and time. Your routine activities can be done automatically like
watering the plants/grass, thermostat settings, turning your lights
on/off, and arming your security system at night. And not only that, you
can also have a wonderful theater time at home by having your television,
DVD, and lights turned on automatically. And this includes the automatic
phone mute, curtains close, etc. this technology is made possible with
only one touch of a button.<br><br>In terms of security, you can benefit
greatly from an automated home. Even if you're away on vacation or you're
in your office, you will be alerted when something's wrong. If you're
asleep and there's a fire, you will be waken up. Or when there's a shut
down of your ventilation system or the gas, the lights will be turned on
automatically so that you can escape and the fire department will be
notified instantly.<br><br>If you have an automated household, you can
save a lot of energy. The house will take charge in all of its lighting
operations, HVAC system, water heater, irrigation systems, appliances,
entertainment components, and other devices. <br><br>Are you convinced
now of how home automation can benefit you and your family? Perhaps you
need to have a few ideas so that you'll know where to start. Here are
great home automation ideas for you:<br><br>- Pager system; if you have a
family member with hearing difficulties, you can use this system; the
person will be notified by a vibrating pager when someone opens your
front door or gate, or when someone pushes the door bell. This system can
alert anyone in a mile's range<br>-     Link your computers to the
cable/DSL modem<br>-   Operate home electronics even when stored in
cabinets or closets; some homeowners prefer to have their entertainment
systems inside stylish cabinets or closets and through home automation,
the entertainment system can be operated using a remote control; the
command travels through IR Eye and into your cabinets/closets<br>-
      Install an intercom at your front door; you can use your existing
phones at home<br>-    Activate the light controls in your home by simply
speaking<br>-    Children will be protected if you have a system for door
and pool alert; this can detect unsupervised access to the pool area or
doorway; and this is especially helpful if you have little kids at
home<br>- Install a security camera with recording capabilities and
motion triggered; this is for the security of your family and home<br>-
      Have a door camera for your front door; when your door bell rings,
you can have a clear view of your visitor<br>-     Have wireless control
of your UPB switches<br><br>These are just some of the excellent projects
which you can incorporate in your home. If you can't have all these
things done in one setting, you can do it one by one, as long as your
budget permits. Invest in home automation and you can get unlimited
benefits of a home that will work for you.<br>
