According to a 2011 poll, man’s best friend, the dog, is in danger of being bumped off as number one on the list, only to be replaced with the PC. It’s not surprising as technology has become so integrated into every aspect of our daily lives that it’s almost impossible to imagine a world without it.
It’s almost impossible to find a home of the 21st century that has not been modified by home automation in some way or the other. Almost every home has some form of technology enhancing it and making life easier for those who reside in it. Home automation can be accurately defined as the connecting of various devices such as lighting, security, and entertainment functions, through one centralised system or unit that allows for automatic control of the said applications.
