Understanding Home Automation and What it Can do For You

smart-home

Our homes have been automated for decades now, whether you realize it or not, from closing the garage with a remote to flipping the lights on. Nowadays, the automated homes have evolved into smart homes thanks to the internet, sensors, and connectivity. In the modern day home, we can operate light switches, window shades, room temperatures, alarm systems, and so much more with a touch of a button. If you have been wondering what the smart home hype is all about, you’ve come to the right place! We will explain what home automation is, what it can do for you, and how to pick the right installer.

What is Home Automation?

Home automation was created to help simplify the home experience by localizing all your home functions and features into a centralized system. A homeowner can access their home controls from a secure and user-friendly app on their favorite Apple or Android device at all times from anywhere in the world. In an instant your shades can go down , your lights turn off, and your alarm goes on.

Below are some examples of the most common automated home functions

•    Lighting control including outdoor

•    Heating and cooling control

•    Pool

•    Motorized Shades

•    Audio and Video Distribution

•    Sprinkler Systems

•    Security Cameras

•    Electronic Locking Systems

 

What It Can Do For You

•    Savings:  Automated devices such as thermostats, sprinklers, lights, and water heater modules can cut down on energy and water use.

•    Control: Many things inside the home, from lighting and temperature controls to garage doors and locking systems, can be controlled remotely through apps on smartphones and tablets.  You have full control even when you are away from home and need to set your house alarm from work or check on the pets from Maui.

•    Convenience: Having your entry lights on, the TV on your favorite sports channel and the doors unlocked as you arrive home, making life a little easier and more luxurious. But convenience isn’t all about luxury. Electronic locks can allow you to grant access to certain people so you don’t have to give out a key or rush home.

•    Security: Keeping your family safe by utilizing the following automated devices, will put your mind at ease. Items such as a visual doorbell can help you see who is at the door via you smartphone or TV. Another, such as automated lights, can mimic your real life activity to make it appear like you are at home. You can also receive alerts when the garage or exterior doors have been opened or your security system has been disabled.
