An automated home lighting system allows you to turn on or off lights remotely—either from another room in the house or from somewhere off site, 像办公室. 另外更方便, 舒适和安全, 家庭自动化系统提供了能源效率的额外优势. 如果你不小心忘了拿东西, you can turn it off from as nearby as an adjacent room or from as far away as another country.
More comprehensive and sophisticated home automation systems integrate all household electrical devices—暖通空调(采暖, 通风空调), 娱乐, 制冷, 灌溉, 安全, surveillance and more—enabling their operation and monitoring from a single source, 通常是电脑或无线设备.
一种节能方案是调峰. 许多智能电器都是可编程的, so that homeowners can take advantage of lower utility rates at times when the demand on the utility is low. More sophisticated home automation systems can communicate with utilities so that appliances such as washers, 热水器, 暖通空调(采暖, 通风 & air conditioning), are automatically deactivated during the peak demand periods.
光电传感器, occupancy and remote control technologies have a proven track record of energy savings and are also the first energy-saving applications in home automation systems.
Occupancy sensor technologies save the automated home’s owner energy and money by limiting lighting, appliance and space conditioning use when rooms or zones are unoccupied for a certain length of time. 光敏传感器可以调节房间的照明，以充分利用日光. 当与家庭自动化系统绑定时, heating and cooling systems can be adjusted to account for passive solar heat gains. Systems connected to a home automation system can also be turned on by telephone, 所以当主人来的时候，家里是舒适的.
Home automation systems operate as programmable 恒温器 and regulate household temperatures on a room-by-room and zone basis, 而不是整个房子. When hooked up to 入住率传感器, the zones are only activated when occupied. In one high-tech application, people carry sensors that are programmed to their personal preferences. The system reads these when people enter a room and adjusts the environment accordingly.
单个设备只能控制一种设备或功能. 例子包括可编程挫折温控器, 运动探测器, 入住率传感器, 光电池照明控制和计时器. Individual control device applications range from outdoor lighting to 安全 sensors.
