HOME AUTOMATION
19/02/2010 at 09:00
For some it may be something as simple as remote or automatic control of a few lights. For others, security may be the central application. Still others may choose to install advanced controllers or use voice recognition. As a very basic definition, we tend to refer to home automation as anything that gives you remote or automatic control of things around the home.

Adding home automation is surprisingly affordable and simple. We included everything from lighting control, surveillance, irrigation, whole home audio/video and more!
We at X10-SA think that home automation should be what you want it to be. Whatever your automation project might be, we\'re confident that using X10 products will make life around the home more convenient, safe and fun!

WHAT CAN I CONTROL?
Lighting
Probably the most popular control category and a great way to get involved with home automation. Dim light fixtures you could never dim before, and control them from anywhere in the house (or world via the Internet).

Security Systems and Access Control
Have your home call you and/or loved ones if there is an alert situation. You can save money on security monitoring services or even monitor for non-traditional security events like water in the laundry room or basement.

Home Theater and Entertainment
Just imagine replacing that pile of remotes with just one controller. Now, imagine not having to know all 10 steps to starting up your home theater - just press the HBO icon and your home automation products/system will do the rest. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers are especially popular with homeowners as they provide beautiful sound throughout the house while adding no clutter whatsoever.

Irrigation
Have your sprinklers turn on only when it\'s not raining. Some of our customers even turn the sprinklers on when there\'s motion in the yard at unwanted times - imagine an intruder trying to explain the wet clothes to the police!
