About

On the web since 1996, Automated Home has been the centre of the Smart Home community for 25 years now.

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

We sold the house in 2018 and began our second self build the following year. We finished it in the summer of 2020 and you can read all our post on the new Automated Home 2.0 here and find the sources for all the products we used here.

Automated Home 2.0 - Move In Day

Over the years 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 New Products Section and on-line Equipment Reviews and Tutorials and our Home Automation Forums and Facebook Group are the place for you to discuss systems and get your technical questions answered.
