Home automation means building automation for a home, and is often referred to as smart home. This typically comprises of control and automation of lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning system, and general security. Home appliances such as washing machines, ovens and refrigerators can also be automated. Remote monitoring and control is usually done through Wi-Fi. Modern systems are typically made up of switches and sensors connected to a central hub where the system is controlled using a user interface. The Qolsys IQ panel offers such interface that keeps you connected to a complete collection of smart devices giving you control over your entire home.
