Home automation is a new way for you to have complete control of your home with a few simple taps of your finger. Thanks to this advanced technology, there are a whole array of different ways for you to save time, money, and energy. Here are some of our favorite ways to improve a home through technological automation updates.
1. Stay Safe with Increased Security
Having automated security systems makes it much easier to protect your home. For example, you can receive a text or email any time an alarm is triggered, helping you to know whenever your possessions are in danger. Additionally, you can manage your alarm right from your phone, lock or unlock your doors, or even close your garage door if you forgot to shut it.
2. Keep an Eye on Everything
Getting notifications that your home alarm has gone off is great, but it doesn't help you to know if it's a real break-in or not. Luckily, thanks to live security camera technology, you can actually keep an eye on the live happenings in your home. This also helps you to catch irksome nighttime scavengers or monitor gardeners or landscapers.
3. Save on Your Energy Bill
Lights burn up a surprising amount of energy. However, by using Lutron lighting in your home, you can save money on your monthly energy bill. Lutron lighting lets you control all the lights in your home using a remote control or your mobile device. This makes it easy to turn off lights you may have forgotten about, decreasing the amount of electricity you use.
4. Manage Your Systems on the Go
With the invention of apps to control your home, it makes it possible to make changes to your home's configuration even when you are thousands of miles away on vacation. If you forgot to lock a door or shut off lights, it is the perfect solution.
5. Turn Appliances on and off at Will
Lights and your security system are not the only electronics that can be controlled through automation. Whole house audio and whole house video systems can be entirely controlled through your phone or remote. You can even turn on a slow cooker while you're still at work so dinner is ready when you get home.
