A Living Home – What Can Home Automation Control?

What is a living home? Your home can be a ‘living’, or ‘smart’ home, making possible the higher efficiency of your home’s functionality, saving you money, and allowing you more time to relax.

It is common to now have your electrically connected home systems integrated into your computer network and through apps on your smartphone. Apps can monitor real-time data, offering automatic adjustments while making your life more convenient.

 

Here are some popular controllable home automations and a few unique offerings from your friends at Alarm Tech.
