Once upon a time, robot butlers were science fiction. Now, the technology is here.
It’s not hard to see why more and more Longs households are embracing home automation. Many busy families find it makes their lifestyle more safe, convenient, and organized.
When you’re at home, you can:
- Ask your virtual assistant to vacuum the living room.
- Automatically open or shut your blinds and adjust lightning with custom settings.
- Use cameras to keep an eye on your kids while you’re working in another room.
- Have artificial intelligence (AI) technology learn your energy usage habits with smart lights and smart thermostats to maximize energy efficiency.
- Receive data on which appliances are using the most electricity each month.
When you’re away, you can:
- Feed your pets and keep them off couches or tables using a prerecorded message.
- Control lights and appliances to save electricity—or act as a theft-deterrent, giving the appearance that you’re still home.
- Answer your door virtually with a security camera doorbell connected to your phone.
- Receive real-time notifications during a break-in, flooding, carbon monoxide (CO) leak, or fire.
Home automation technology is fully customizable. That means you can add or subtract features as time goes on. Plus, engineers invent tons of new compatible products every year—the sky is the limit.

How Does Home Automation Work?
The three main components most home automation systems have are controllers, actuators, and sensors.
- Controllers—With any home automation system, you will use a controller to manage the functions in your house. The controller can be your smartphone, your computer, or a tablet. By downloading an app, you’ll be able to access and play with the features in your Longs home.
- Actuators—Actuators perform the function that your controller tells them to do. A specialist will install actuators in your home. When you use your phone (the controller) to turn off a light, it sends a signal to an actuator that cuts off the current to your lightbulb. For automated curtains, the actuator pulls the curtains to open or close.
- Sensors—Sensors are the eyes and ears of your home automation system. They monitor things like motion, light, and temperature. Once you program your home automation device to its desired setting, it will automatically rewire itself to accommodate your preferences.
