Home automation systems are becoming more and more appealing to homeowners looking for an extra level of security and control when they are on vacation or away from their homes. There are many options to choose from do-it-yourself to professional systems. So, where do you start?

Enjoy music and videos? Keep track of your family? Another important factor to consider is how you would like to connect to the system—do you prefer doing everything from a portable smartphone or tablet, or would you prefer to use an in-wall keypad or touch panel that’s in the same place every time you need it? Imagine which tasks might be made more efficient with the help of a home automation system.
