Automation used to be something that only businesses could benefit from, but now it’s become attainable for homeowners too. It has also expanded from merely controlling lights and air conditioning remotely to accessing anything electronic in your home. (Even your electrical outlets can be “smart”!)
This connectivity is a result of the ever-expanding Internet of Things.
Home automation provides the ability to control devices in your home, both while on your couch and from the opposite side of the world. This remote monitoring and access to devices—lights, security system, and even appliances—can simplify your life in many ways.
Here are three:
- Peace of Mind
Do you ever leave your house, get halfway to your destination, and then wonder if you remembered to turn off the coffee pot or arm your security system?
We’ve all been there…
Smart home automation allows you to check the electronics of your home via smart phone, tablet or computer. It keeps you connected to your house so that can you know what’s turned off, what’s on and when your kids walk in the door from school. It also provides an added sense of security allowing for better peace of mind.
- Improved Organization
Life is busy; it’s really easy to forget the little things. With home automation you can set a schedule for when the lights should come on or turn off, what time the security system should be armed and when the A/C or heat should activate. This advancing technology can help you stay organized and focus on the more important priorities in your day.
- Convenience and Comfort
You’ve cozied up on your couch with a big bowl of popcorn and are ready for a movie night when you realize you forgot to turn the overhead light off and can’t find TV remote. Sound familiar? Instead of getting up to dig under the cushions and flip off all the lights, you can grab your smart phone and control everything from there.
Some may call this lazy—we like to call it convenient.
