Unsourced material may be challenged and removed (September 2010) Home automation (also called domotics ) is the residential extension of " building automation ". It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care. A home automation system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. The techniques employed in home automation include those in building automation as well as the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems houseplant and yard watering, pet feeding, changing the ambiance "scenes" for different events (such as dinners or parties), and the use of

Lutus (double-click any word to see its definition) Introduction One of my early "personal computers" (1980). Among urban legends , one of the most persistent is that "real soon now" we'll have computer-controlled houses with refrigerators that tell us what we forgot to buy, coffee makers that spring to life unbidden and lights that turn themselves on when we enter a room. Technology demonstrations like Disney's "House of the Future" (1957) and several more recent projects have tried to show what kind of environment would result from the fully realized marriage of a computer and a house. I've always been an early adopter An X-10 wall switch. Note the two dials at the top one for House Code, one for Unit Code. The problems with the X-10 system quickly became apparent:
  • It was meant for incandescent lights, no fluorescents or appliances that included transformers (a special control with a noisy relay could be gotten for the latter).

    What is Home Automation?
    Home Automation makes your life easier, it makes your life more comfortable, it saves you energy, it gives you more security, a peace of mind and not to forget it is fun too.
    But most of all we believe it is what you want it to be. For some of you, it could be as simple as controlling a light or appliance with the same remote you use to control your TV.
    For others, it is a completely automated home that is controlled by a computer interface completely programmed to fit your personal lifestyle. From now on, your home automation system performs all the difficult tasks.
    Whole house audio/video and remote video surveillance can be an exciting part too.
    Only your imagination is the limit of what Home Automation is capable of doing for you.
    All the Home Automation products we offer are X10 Home Automation systems (or X10 compatible).
    They can all be found in our online catalog at low prices.

Home automation / integration is the ultimate blending of technology and house management. Home automation adds greater comfort, convenience, and capabilities to your home, as well as even saving you money.
Heating, air-conditioning, and lighting can add up to high energy bills. Home automation controls these systems to help reduce your expenses. For example, it can sense when a room is no longer in use and turn off the lights and turn down the heat. But cost-efficiency isn't all a home automation system provides convenience and comfort are just as important. Say you wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. When you step onto the floor a pressure sensor under the carpet can transmit a signal to the system which then brings up the lights but perhaps to only 5%, enough to find your way, but not enough to disturb your still-sleeping spouse. After returning to bed, the pressure sensor detects you've returned, and the lights automatically fade to off. To ensure you get the most from a home automation system you need someone who understands and works with all the systems in your home.

Log home automation? Excuse me?
By Tom Heatherington
On first hearing the term "home automation", most log home owners will say something like... I didn't build a rustic log home to turn it into a high-tech, silicon powered "smart building" I couldn't agree more, the ever-changing technology of our fast-paced, hyper get-ahead world is one of the things most of us were trying to leave behind. But don't let misinformation (or misunderstanding) keep you from achieving your original goal of simplifying your life. Most of us can recall the first time we felt the excitement of making a light turn on with a timer, or changed channels on our TV with a remote control. A home automation system is about automating everyday tasks like those while getting the most from our energy dollars and protecting our home. Further good news is that we don't have to call in the professionals to make it all happen. Today's home automation products are effortless to set up, even for non-geeks, and the cost is amazingly inexpensive. A typical starter kit, which includes home automation software several modules, remote controls and sensors is less than $100. Also, one of the best features of these systems is that you don't have to leave your computer turned on for everything to work (additional modules for lamps and appliances cost as little as $15).

C-Bus and Elan Clipsal C-Bus Home Automation Systems Description
"I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others... I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent." Thomas Edison's invention of the incandescent light bulb in 1879 revolutionised our way of life, creating a future bright with possibility that few ever could have imagined. Today, we rely on electricity to operate our homes, offices, and industries; power computers and the Internet; run various forms of transportation; provide communications and of course power our home entertainment! We have come a long way since Edison's invention of the light bulb in 1879. Clipsal C-Bus Electrical Management Enter Alfred Gerard. In 1920 he developed the first Clipsal products in South Australia, a range of adjustable conduit fittings that 'clips all' sizes of conduit, inspiring the brand name Clipsal. Like Clipsal adjustable conduit fittings did more than 80 years ago, the company has changed the electrical industry through its focus on producing the world's most advanced, yet user friendly, range of electronic switching and energy management automation products. The turning point for Clipsal in building automation came in 1994, when they launched the Clipsal C-Bus Energy Management System, which has been instrumental in helping people to understand the importance of large scale energy management with the benefit to substantially reduce power usage and thus save money! The end user has also been provided with advanced functionality that is easy to use and flexible to enable system functions to be modified or more features added at a later date.

We are still verifying details on some of the less frequently used features of these systems as well as preparing sections covering differences in the system programming features and tools. The latter is probably of more interest to installers and dealers than to a homeowner. Please check back with us for updated information. If there is some specific information you would like to see as part of this comparison, please send us an email
We also would welcome your comments on the usefulness of this comparison as it relates to your project and how it helped you in your selection process. (Send feedback.)
And finally, if there are other manufacturers or types of controllers you would like to see compared, let us know . We'll consider all requests, but priority will be placed on those systems and manufacturers that have features and functionality appropriate for use with our custom Home Management Systems. The next comparison we're preparing is for HVAC control systems from Trane, Carrier, Siebe/Barber Colman, Johnson Controls, and Alerton. That's a fairly large bit of work that we expect to have finished in two to three months. Until it is done, there is a page in place right now from which you can request an email notification be sent to you when the HVAC comparison is complete.
