Home automation: Your home on autopilot

Home automation is an integral component of any home energy management system.

What is home automation and what benefits does it deliver?

Home automation is the process of setting devices in the home to work according to a schedule or in otherwise predictable ways. It can be put into action for a variety of reasons (such as home security or energy efficiency) using a range of technologies (such as simple timers or smart plugs).

Although a home energy management system (HEMS) is not strictly necessary to automate a home, it definitely makes the process easier and promises better outcomes than a piecemeal approach. Increasingly affordable, interactive and versatile, HEMS like carbonTRACK are the future of home automation everywhere.
