SLHL: What does a homeowner need to start the process of a home automation system?
Scott:
Our systems are designed around a single interface that is the same across any device.  So, we can simply start with a smartphone (from Apple or Android) or a flat panel to provide the basis for a home automation system.  A high-speed Internet connection also helps with features like streaming music and remote access.
