Advantages of Installing a Wireless Home Automation System

Modern homes are becoming increasingly automated and self-controlled because of the advantages these features provide in terms of convenience. A Home Automation System (HAS) provides homeowners the capability to control electrical appliances, heating & cooling, security, access, and entertainment devices in their homes.

The conveniences become even greater if your HAS is wireless. Even an older home can take advantage of the 21st century technological benefits provided by HAS. Work with a trusted local licensed electrician for the best results and safety.

Wireless Benefits

Wireless communication provides a number of advantages that aren’t possible in wired networks. The following is a list of benefits derived from a wireless home automation system.

Decreased Installation Costs

The installation costs for a wireless HAS are decreased significantly as cabling will not be required. In contrast, wired systems require cable installation, and this is more expensive as payments for professionals and equipment will be required.


One of the chief advantages of a wireless network is scalability. Should demands increase in the future, expansion will be fast and easy. This cannot be said for wired systems as additional cables will have to be purchased. In addition, a technician and perhaps a contractor will be needed for the installation.


In addition to being able to cover larger spaces, wireless networks preserve the aesthetics of buildings because cable installation is unnecessary. Houses of architectural or historic importance will not have to undergo alteration for the laying of cable.

Mobile Device Integration

Modern mobile devices like smartphones and tablets can be adapted to control home automation systems. As a result, a HAS may be accessed anywhere and at any time, providing convenience and peace of mind to homeowners.
