Latest Technology in Automated Home Control is an easy to follow system design, installation and programming manual. This book is a must for anyone taking a hands-on approach to automating their residence. Learn how to design, install and program powerful residential automation systems by following the 'Example Home' room-by-room, step-by-step format.

This publication centers around a fully illustrated' Example Home' that realistically describes and demonstrates various methods of automating practically any electrical load found in the home.

This book includes system design information required to automate both interior and exterior lighting, ceiling fans, attic ventilation fans, window coverings, air conditioning systems, pools and spas, multi-zone audio/video systems, multi-zone sprinkler systems, garage doors, property access gates, security camera surveillance systems, integrated security systems and much more!

The primary intention of the 'Example Home' format is to provide the reader with a concise fast-track and easy means of learning and applying automated home control design concepts to their own personal projects. This unique whole house approach will provide basic as well as advanced design and interface methods. Realistic scenarios are also provided to help the reader understand what could be experienced during the process of automating a home. For example, at the beginning of Chapter Two, this manual describes a scenario of a system designer individual who approaches the 'Example Home' for the first time for the purpose of examining the house prior to designing the home automation system. This individual looks at the electrical loads in the home and how they are manually controlled to obtain the information required to automate these devices. The design individual also performs an X10 signal strength test and electrical noise test to potentially find any problems with the existing electrical system. This process is easily performed and is described in a step-by-step format. This information is then used to provide the appropriate solutions before a system is designed. After the design individual has determined what there is to work with in the 'Example Home', the design process leads the reader from room-to-room to teach the appropriate design techniques for each and every application.

Programming the system is only required when a Home Controller is incorporated as part of the design. Residential automation systems that do not utilize a Home Controller can provide powerful automation features; however, they cannot provide the wealth of control possibilities, versatility, convenience and decision making capabilities that a Home Controller can furnish. Programming is easy to perform and should not intimidate anyone. The programming is written the same way a human naturally thinks.

IF button number one on a transmitter is pushed and it is after sunset, THEN the Home Controller will run the‘Entertainment Mode’.

IF the Garage door is open and it is 10;00 PM Sunday through Saturday, THEN the Home Controller will automatically close the garage door (Check garage door closed).

IF I push a secure transmitter button from my car when arriving home, THEN activate the ‘Arriving Home Mode’. This mode will open the garage door, disarm the security system, turn on a light in each room only IF it is after sunset for safety purposes, turn on some favorite music, change the heating and cooling temperature set-points and any other control function you wish to occur.

The various design sections of this manual also contains the programming lines of a wide variety of ‘Events’ or ‘Modes of Operation’ that provide the family with many valuable features to fit their lifestyle. This makes it easy for you to program your automation system without having to come up with ideas from scratch.

The information contained in this book can make your home more convenient, comfortable, secure, fun, and energy efficient.

  • This book is an excellent reference even though it was written in 2003. Robert N. Bucceri provides clear illustrations and schematics for tackling home automation projects. This information is not for novices but will make perfect sense to those who are practitioners of the home automation field.

  • I purchased this book because I was interested in smart wiring my home for some basic automation. Although I'm familiar with electrical wiring diagrams this book is not for a person looking to make a couple of cool updates to his/her house or apartment.

    Personally I was disappointed with the content of this book.

  • I am writing this review because this book was one of Amazon's recommendations when I looked for "Structured Wiring". The only information about structured wiring in this book are a couple of references to his other book on structured wiring, which is not particularly well reviewed.

    While I was not interested in an X-10 system when I bought this book, I found that it had a lot of interesting ideas for controlling a home beyond the usual opening and closing drapes, turning lights on and off with a remote control. My own personal bias is that controlling such functions from a remote instead of a switch is not much of an automation improvement. For me the more interesting subjects were topics such as: Interfacing a home controller to an alarm system to integrate their functions; controlling electrical loads such as your electrical water heater, HVAC, and attic fan to save energy, controlling sprinklers, etc.; using a single button to turn off all of the lights in you house before going to bed, etc.

    The book is intended to be read from cover to cover. It is a step by step description of how to fully automate an example home. While I haven't implemented such a system, the examples appear to me to be more than adequate to come up with your own implementation.

    I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 for several reasons: The layout/format/typeface makes the book a bit harder to read than most books. It could also use some editing (spelling and grammar errors that sometimes have you scratching your head for a few seconds).

    Would I buy the book again? Absolutely: I just wish that they had done a better job producing it.

  • Home/Office automation is growing so fast that few printed books could keep up. This book gets basic wiring principles and organization worked out right away, and then proceeds to X-10 coverage and programming. I will use the basic principles laid out for years to come, but it may be better to skip the X-10 stuff and the specific cable types it recommends (Cat5e should be replaced with Cat6, etc). The book also focuses on Internet in the Home/Office based on a stand-alone PC that acts as a server. Routers with firewalls are now the way to go. The programming code does however hold basic structure and logic that is carried over into newer technologies, so it's worth going over. The illustrations could also be updated, but that's already been said. Overall, it was worth the money, and I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to get a good comprehensive coverage of home automation.

  • I've ordered both books from the author and I must say they were quite an eye opener. I've been browsing through the internet for various sources and unfortunately these two books are some of the very few in existance. Both books are more like an technical implementation manual intended for x10 system integrators and are packed with details, suggestions and walkthroughs. Both books focuses mainly on wiring and logical setup. But they go in details of how to actualy do things right. There are numerous examples, floorplans, blueprints for everyone's taste or occasion.
    These books are not for everyone, they are too tecnical and way too specific although they do contain some general information. I gave 4 stars due to the way knowledge is presented (sometimes quite difficult to read) and becouse of the lack of information on computer software controlled systems. Otherwise splendid work.

  • Having a book center around a fully illustrated example house is a great idea because it made it easy for me to automate my home. I just followed the examples for the devices I wanted to automate and applied the information to develop my home automation system. The book even told me what control components I needed to use to automate my lighting, ceiling fans, air conditioning, pool equipment, vertical blinds and my audio video equipment. I also plan to integrate my security system in with my automation system.

    What is cool about my automated home is that I can push one button when I leave to control devices on/off or open/close. Another cool control is pushing a button on the transmitter in my car that starts the arriving home mode. This mode turns on lighting inside and outside my home only when it is dark out. It also opens my garage door, turns on the garage lights, changes the temperature set points on my air conditioner to lower my electric bills and opens my verticals. When I integrate my security system, the modes will also arm and disarm the security system. I have other modes like the morning mode, good night mode and entertainment mode right now but I plan to add more modes. This book is great because it provides detailed information on how to automate your house. If you like convenience, security and entertainment, I highly recommend this book to you.

  • I really like this book because it actually taught me how to design my automated system and it has lots of drawings and pictures to explain things easily. It taught me how to automate my lighting, air conditioning, whole house audio and video system, garage door, water heater, security system and pool/spa. It was easier to automate these things than I thought it would be. I think it was the example home shown in this book that helped me apply design preocedures and installation methods to my own automation system design. I also bought the book How To Automate Both New & Existing Homes by the same author and also found it to be an excellant resource. Thank you Mr Bucceri for the information I needed.
