Home automation gives you access to control devices in your home from a mobile device anywhere in the world. It is possible to control via voice commands and augmented reality. Augmented reality enables yet another unique feature: the user can control KNX devices by using the camera of the smartphone. By aiming the camera towards a real world object, the appropriate controls appears on the camera screen (compare Pokemon Go).

Home automation include lights, appliances, electrical outlets, heating and cooling systems. From a home security perspective, this also includes your alarm system, and all of the doors, windows, locks, smoke detectors, surveillance cameras and any other sensors that are linked to it.
