Home automation is a relatively new concept in South Africa however is one that is growing in popularity and demand at an astounding rate as home-owners begin to understand the phenomenal benefits of automating their home environment.

Home automation is building automation for a home, called a smart home or smart house.

It can also include home security such as access control and alarm systems as well as the locking or opening of doors and gates.

A home automation system, such as those installed by DBS, is a network of hardware, communication, and electronic interfaces that work to integrate everyday devices with one another via the Internet. Each device, called a “smart device” has sensors and is connected through WiFi, so that you can manage them from your smartphone or tablet whether you are at or away from your home.
