The Ecobonus for home automation is a national measure to encourage home automation that was originally introduced by Law No 208 of 2015. Since it was confirmed by the Budget Law promulgated at the end of 2018, it can also be used in the case of expenses incurred in 2019.
The measure is very interesting for those who build a home automation system, because it allows to deduct with a rate of 65% those solutions that increase the efficiency of the heating system and inform end users about their consumption.
The Ecobonus focuses on those parts of the home systems that are traditionally responsible for most of the energy consumption: heating and domestic water production are in fact worth an average of 80% of domestic energy consumption.

For expenses incurred between 1 January and 31 December 2019, there is a deduction for the purchase, installation and putting into service of multimedia devices for remote control of heating systems, hot water production or air conditioning of housing units, aimed at increasing awareness of energy consumption by users and to ensure more efficient operation of the systems. The deduction is made to the extent of 65% of the total amount spent.
These multimedia devices must have specific characteristics. In particular:
The measure facilitates, in addition to the supply and installation of all equipment (electrical, electronic and mechanical), the electrical and masonry works necessary for the installation and operation of building automation systems inside buildings for the control and monitoring of thermal systems.
