Early Home Automation

I stumbled across this antique while working on the remodel of a mid century modern home this week. It’s a low-voltage lighting control system, a forerunner to modern-day automation. Pretty high tech huh?!

Modern-day control systems like Lutron and Vantage have definitely come a long way! Today we can install systems that control your entire home including: lighting, security, audio, hvac, and more. The fact that many of these technologies can be controlled with a smart phone or an iPad makes them even more desirable! Imagine where we will be in another 50 years!
