Home Automation is the latest movement in the Building & Construction industry.  The residential extension of building automation, home automation ties to the upward trend of the Internet of Things (IoT), with Smart Home control systems that can be operated from a mobile device.  Now, once manual aspects of the home – HVAC, lighting, security, garage doors, cable systems, smoke detectors, window shades and even pet feeders – can be executed with a push of a button or a voice command.

JLM's roots in this industry started with Maxell, a company that developed a primary, non rechargeable 20 year lithium battery. The battery provides a reliable power source for AMR (automatic meter reading) and digital cable set-top boxes.
