  A "smart home" typically is a domestic environment that has been partially automated. Home automation includes centralized control for lighting, windows, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliance management, and others home appliances and features. Systems can range from simple remote control of lighting through to complex computer/micro-controller based networks with varying degrees of intelligence and automation.
