4.central vacuum system
5.lighting control system
6.climate control
7.Home networking

Home automation refers to the use of computer and information technology to control home appliances and features (such as windows or lighting). Systems can range from simple remote control of lighting through to complex computer/micro-controller based networks with varying degrees of intelligence and automation. Home automation is adopted for reasons of ease, security and energy efficiency.

Garage door openers and automotive key fobs have been working reliably (secure convenient home automation) for decades---because they simply work. Recent efforts to automate access to your residential front door via a smart phone app; whether the new deadbolt door hardware uses Bluetooth, infrared, or NFC (near field communication)--ALL these can easily be hacker magnets. Most new Remote Control Deadbolts aka Smart Locks are often OVERPRICED as they replace your existing deadbolt, do not fit on the door, are ugly, require a locksmith, are hackable, or all of the above.

Finally-I'll stick to the proven one in four billion RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Control) and use my key fob.
