It wasn't so long ago when it was thought that home automation systems were exclusively for a selected few. These systems, which appear to be taken from a science-fiction movie because they allow the central remote controlling of all the electronic and electrical devices of a home, are today, to a greater or lesser extent, within the reach of The majority of users. Thanks to these smart systems, it is possible to open and close windows, programme the air conditioning units, or switch on/off the lights using a simple mobile phone with a WiFi connection.
However, not all automation systems are the same, so, when installing one, it is necessary to take into account a number of factors. As far as homes are concerned, it is important to consider the number of people residing in the house as well as how many hours a day they stay at home. This is mainly due to the fact that a holiday home is not the same as a primary residence.
