The 21st century offers us multiple technologies, to which human beings have been adapting more and more. With all these advances, we are in constant need to seek new ways to help us perform daily tasks, automating systems that make our work easier helping to optimize time. That's when, then, what we know today as home automation emerges.
The word domotic, better known as home automation comes from the union of two words, domus in Latin means house, and tic that comes from the word in Greek automatic, meaning that it works by itself. Home automation is also known as innovation science that is growing at an accelerated level, so that large industries have been increasingly improving their products in order to provide greater comfort to their customers.
"Houses of the future will be smart", this is an idea that we have been digesting for years and years and that, in part, has already become a reality for some. This is achieved through home automation, which involves the integration of technology in the intelligent design of a house thanks to a system of automations that provide an easier, comfortable and safer life.
Everyone wants to control their house from anywhere and automate the most routine activities within it; The real challenge is how to do it in an easy and affordable way.
ZipaTile awarded in the last edition of CES in Las Vegas with the "Innovations Award Honoree", is a home automation controller of the Zipato brand, one of the major players in the home automation market and one of the most dynamic and innovative brands.
