The correct incentive for applying automation is to increase productivity and quality that is possible with current human labour levels so as to realize economies of scale and realize predictable quality levels. Home automation identifies a rising practice of features in residential dwellings and increased automation of household appliances, particularly through electronic and electrical means that allow for impractical things , highly expensive or simply not possible in recent past decades.
