About Smart Home automation

Home automation is when different technologies and systems are integrated together into a single control system which allows one system to automatically control another without you explicitly having to request every action.
The extension of commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls into the residential market alongside smart lighting and security solutions has since revolutionised how home owners interact with domestic systems and appliances through an expanding combination of hardware, communication protocols and electronic interfaces.

Certainly, the use in domestic environments of IP cameras, motion detection hardware, door opening sensors and remote controls has surged, though from a low base.
The ubiquity of wireless networks using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and to a lesser extent ZigBee and Z-Wave in the home has also helped. They have provided the communications channel that devices, sensors and back-end software systems need to transmit, store and analyse the information collected.

Home automation low in the UK but set to grow extensively

The home automation sector in the United Kingdom is set to grow in spite of the fact that it is seen as one in its infancy stage at the moment when compared to the rest of the developed European countries like Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands or the United States.
Home automation is popular in small households as well as large corporate buildings in many European countries. But the United Kingdom has been quite slow in adopting the new automation technologies and standards. However, there are quite a number of companies that are emerging and moving home automation in the UK to a whole new level. These companies are making use of the UK’s growth potential in this industry and developing technologies that are readily available to end-users.
Though they have steadily fallen in price, home automation devices remain expensive and are likely to remain so until their popularity reaches a tipping point that will persuade large scale manufacturers to drive down costs further by producing equipment in higher volumes
