Today’s Home Automation


Would you like to control every aspect of your home with the push of a button? From one universal remote you can close your blinds, turn off the lights, control the thermostat, lock your doors, arm your security system, and more.

A Little Background

The idea of home automation has been around for a while, being shown at the World’s Fairs in the 1930s. The first “wired homes” were built by American hobbyists in the 1960s and the term “smart house” was coined in 1984. However, home automation was limited by the technology of its day and even in the late 1990s, only available to businesses and the super rich.

Becoming More Affordable

One of the big names today in home automation is Savant. Their Apple iOS based-systems control every aspect of your home, including the TV, fireplace, stereo, etc. and go from $2,000 to $200,000.

Fortunately, more and more smaller companies have found ways to offer home automation services for a fraction of the price.


In Northeast Indiana, Simplx Security offers a security system with the capacity for many home automation functions. This means you can start off with a basic security system and add smart locks, automated lighting, garage door openers, thermostats, driveway sensors, cameras, and other household appliances whenever you like. All of these home automation services can be controlled from your security system keypad, smartphone, tablet, or computer.
