The motive behind most applications is to enable a process where earlier it was either impossible or very difficult. Whether it is the use of a simple device like a pulley or a lever, or a more complex one like the mixer-grinder, the basic objective has always been to make things easier. Home automation products have developed steadily since the middle of 20th century in USA and Western Europe after the war years. Running water, electricity lines, cheap gasoline, piped cooking gas and the thousand and one devices using them, made life much simpler for people in both towns and villages.
Home automation devices are those electronic or mechanical devices which automate certain everyday processes, requiring less of human intervention. Thus, the mixer-grinder and juicer made mixing, grinding and juice extraction processes simpler. The washing machine required little effort in washing clothes now that the whole process was automated. The dishwasher helps cleaning the dishes and plates after every lunch or dinner saving a lot of hard work. The vacuum cleaner not only does a better work at cleaning than the standard duster and broom, thus ensuring a healthier environment, but it also does it much faster and with a lot less effort.
