Are you one of those people that like to control things with one single push of a button in or away from your home? Well watch out security industry because looks like we have a new neighbor in town.


Home automation is creating a new market for residential security. Technology keeps changing on a day to day basis and with change comes new products and services. Home automation is now going to allow for people to centrally and remotely control such features as energy use for their homes, lighting and door access, and view their cameras from anywhere in the world. Most of your DVRs already come with remote access to view your cameras even from your I phone or android phone.  However, home automation is taking things to a whole other level. More and more people are getting security systems for their home and  wanting the ability to control every aspect of technology within that home.


Some in the industry are staying away from home automation because they say there is a lack of demand. However, others argue that technology will prevail in the end. That might as well be true, because who would have thought that you could access your complete surveillance system through your cell phone. However, just think about if you could turn down your ac before you get home, control your lighting in certain areas of your home say around your garage, *access your cameras all before you pull into your driveway! Wow!


Home automation is and will transform the security industry, especially in the residential sector.
