7. Advanced Techniques > 99. Control Your Home from a Web Browser

Control Your Home from a Web Browser

If your home automation computer is tucked away in a closet or the garage, it can be inconvenient when you need to access it directly or add a new event. Set up web-based access, however, and you can take control from any computer in the house.

Software that enables you to control your computer remotely is invaluable for home automation. Let’s say you want to add a new scheduled event, or you just want to brighten a nearby lamp that’s not already set up for access from a minicontroller. Simply open your laptop, connect it to the home automation server, and make the change. You can do all of this without leaving the comfort of your easy chair. Could life possibly get any better?
