Install multiple thermostats to create smaller zones for heating and cooling, and create temperature setpoints for simple, yet effective environmental control.The Home Automation system intelligently manages temperature in your home which can help to shrink your carbon footprint and your heating costs.
The most obvious way of HVAC or heating control with the use temperature sensors in different rooms to control heating. The correct placement of sensors and the use of automated timers can reduce energy use. With an automated system it is possible to heat living areas only when people are home and to only to heat the bedrooms once night time and the morning come around and only whilst those rooms are occupied
You can also automate the hot water system so it can be switched off when not needed, like when house is vacant. Like everything else that is automated in your home it is possible to remotly control the system via your mobile phone or any computer on the internet. The glory with this is that you can remoly tell the system to switch the heating on before you get home.

A home automation system allows you to operate equipment only when they are needed, appliances can be switched off when not required and this can lead to energy savings. The automation of equipment is particularly useful if the appliances normally use standby power,when they are not in use, for example a DVD player your Stereo or your TV.
How the home automation systems works is by controlling the electricty going to the equipment. This control can be implemented by sensors and a centralised processor which allows timed events to be programmed allowing for the control of equipment throughout the house.
A home automation system can control to some extent any appliance in your home, through its electricity supply like Appliances, home entertainment equipment. lighting, window openings, water pumps, pool pumps, garage doors or sprinkler systems. Sensors could include, motion sensors, light sensors and temperature sensors, these respond to changes in the environment,like the presence of occupants or changes in the internel or externel temperature. Centralised control of the system can be through wall keypads, touchscreens or computers either locally or remotle via the internet or even mobile phones.
