5 Automation Startups Pushing Technology Forward

In the world of home automation, there are two big issues to overcome: one is the price and the other is integration and centralization. Right now, many people have DIY home automation controlled by numerous apps. Homeowners have to open one app to water their yard and another one to change the thermostat. This simply doesn’t make sense, and some people think it’s more trouble than its worth. Fortunately, in addition to the established home automation companies like Control4, URC, Crestron, and others, a few key startups are starting to take a more centralized approach to automation.

Often, it’s the little guys that cover the most ground with new technology. Keep an eye on these startups as they change the face of home automation. In addition to making features more cost-effective, they’re all gravitating toward the centralized approach that makes much more expensive automation solutions so convenient.
