While there are no simple or immediate solutions for the warming up, the requirements in energy consumption are varying to achieve a sustainable evolution, mainly at the production of electricity. In Mexico the industrial sector registers the highest consumption, but at the residential sector - the second highest consumer of energy - more people might get to know the relevance of taking care of the planet. Now that different options might provide energy to Mexican homes, there is a tangible opportunity to develop residential energy management and efficiency models, as well as energy generation, transmission and consumption [mainly solar panels, societies of auto-generation, or buying power from the nearest generation-plant]. Home automation may provide a means to achieve this. A well-done planning is fundamental to create a clear concept of a solution; therefore, a reachable conceptual design of home automated solutions to energy conservation may emerge from this proposal.
