What is Automation?

By definition Automation is: "the use of machines and computers that can operate without needing human control".

Automation is something that everyone is talking about – this concept is not new, but the technology which is all around us is now allowing us to introduce small automations into our life.

We all already have simple automations in our life – our home thermostats use automation to turn our heating on and off when it is needed within the time and temperature boundaries we specified. Paying via direct debit is also a form of automation where we are automating our payments, so we do not have to do it manually.
