Has this ever happened to you?
You’ve left your home and you’re halfway to work when it hits you: did you lock your front door? Then you have to decide, do you drive back home and check it? Do you head to work, but worry about the safety of your home all day?
Home automation is the solution to this problem, and so many more. Home automation allows you to manage different aspects of household management right from your computer or smart device. Automating your home can save your time, your money, and your sanity.
What is possible with home automation? Here are three ways automation can make your life easier.
1. Home Security
Automated security systems solve your, “Did I lock the door?” problem, and do much more. Automated security systems allow you to control your door locks, turn alarm systems on and off, and manage security alerts remotely. Going on vacation? You can check on your home right from your phone. Automating home security allows you to manage door locks, security cameras, alarms, and smoke detectors no matter where you are.
If you have kids that are always leaving the lights on, or you want to set the lights to be on when you’re not home, you can automate your lighting systems – both interior and exterior. From your phone or computer you can turn lights on and off, set timers, and control motion sensors for your outdoor lights. Automating your lighting can cut your energy bills way down, and can also go hand-in-hand with your automated security system to keep your home safe.
3. Energy Management
Heating and cooling account for a large portion of homeowner’s bills month-to-month. An extremely hot summer or cold winter can cause a big increase in your utility bills. Automating your thermostat can help you manage these bills while keeping your home a comfortable temperature. You can set your air conditioning or heat to turn on or off at certain times, and make adjustments based on your schedule or the weather. Investing in automating your HVAC system can save you money in the years to come!
