How does it work?
A cell phone with the proper app is the usual interface between you and the home automation
The heart of the system is the controller or central hub. This device receives signals from a computer
or cell phone and transmits them to the various components in the home.
The signals from the hub are sent through the home's electrical wiring, by wi-fi or both to the
devices and their controllers. These local controllers turn appliances and systems on and off based on
In addition, sensors such as door position, motion detection, smoke detectors, flood detectors, etc
send signals to the hub when they detect an abnormal situation in the home. The hub then sends alerts to
the cell phone and can cause appliances to turn on/off.
