Home automation is the hottest new trend in the home improvement market with more and more technological advances. Home automation means to literally run your home automatically. This central computerized control of the house allows home owners a systematic manner of going about household duties. Gone are the days when you had to check the clock for things that needed to be done at various times of the day. Now with one press of a button or flip of a switch you can let your house run by itself.
The use of control systems has gained considerable popularity in past few years. There are many home activities that can be regulated by automated devices and sensors. For example, automated security alarms controlled by sensors are of great importance. Having a smart home where most of the work is controlled by robots is going to be the future of home automation. All of the workflow in a house; entertainment, cooking, electric and gas system, plumbing, and security can be automated through wireless systems. In other words, home automation is capable of running most of the indoor operations.
A home automation system mechanizes your entire house from turning on of sprinklers at specific time of the day, activation of the cooling/heating system according to the internal room temperature, deactivation of heating/cooling system automatically when you are not in, shifting to the energy conserving mode when the house is unoccupied, turning on the lights of the driveway when your cars pulls in say only from 7 pm to 1 am and many more such functions.
VivaHomeComfort is done for a number of purposes. It can be to make the house friendlier for the elderly or the children, to take home security to the next level and to make home operations easier and to run them smoothly. A house automation system consists of various subsystems which are under its operations. These vary from lighting, security and air conditioning to entertainment, music, TV volume and motorized blinds and drapes.
The automation system consists of two main parts: the controlling system which is the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and a user operated device acting as a trigger or remote. The CPU is usually installed at one place inside the house and the user communicates with it via handheld pads, touch screens (installed or handheld) or remotes. These are the two basic components that every house automation system has. Apart from these every automation system has varying features, operations, intelligence, flexibility and functions depending on the price and sophistication of the system.
Although house automation sounds an expensive deal yet you can always find something in the market at both the high and lower end of the price range. The moderate automation systems control a few basic operations like security and lighting. The modern, expensive and sophisticated ones have a wide range of possible functions and can even be customized to the individual needs of every home and every customer.
