About

Thank you for visiting.  On the web since 1996, Automated Home has been the centre of the Smart Home community for almost 2 decades.

Automated Home was born out of a lack of information on Home Automation on the web, when we decided to build our own smart home in the late 1990s. From the experience with our Self Build we created the Wiring Guide which hopefully has inspired and informed the hundreds of thousands of people that have read it.

We’ve become the trusted resource for information on home technologies for automation and entertainment in new builds and retro fits. Other popular features are our regularly updated News Section and on-line Equipment Reviews and Tutorials and our Home Automation Forums are the place for you to discuss systems and get your technical questions answered free.
