What Is a Smart Home?
Making your home “smart” is the ultimate opportunity to control the hard-to-prevent things in life, from rising utility costs to security breaches and beyond. Choosing to make your home “smart” means upgrading your ability to react at a moment’s notice, all from the convenience of your smartphone.
Smart bulbs for your lights, doorbell cameras, remote control door locking systems, house speakers; there are many examples of how to automate your home into a practical, fully optimized smart home. You have free rein to adjust settings for all these devices from one convenient app that you carry with you anywhere.
Forgot to lock the door on your way to work? Simple – just lock your doors from your phone with smart app technology.
Benefits of Home Automation
Increased Security and Safety
Smart devices like doorbell cameras, automatic and remote-control door locks, and active alerts help to keep you in the loop and in control. Enhance your ability to see danger and prevent it with automated home security system technology from your phone.
Automated devices provide real-time updates and remote-control monitoring from your smartphone and provide accurate data reports on activity and application use. Simply set your devices to your preferences, look at the numbers when you please, and adjust your appliance use.
Increased Energy Efficiency and Savings
With accurate real-time rundowns of energy spending, smart homeowners never have to worry about spending an extra dollar they don’t want to.
All appliances can turn off or on when needed and even run on low-energy settings to keep costs down. With energy control and monitoring provided, energy efficiency and savings are guaranteed.
Improved Appliance Functionality
Older appliances use up a lot of energy, especially as they get older. But unlike older models, smart home appliances are specially built to be more durable and energy efficient, even with consistent use over a long period of time.
Answer the Door from Anywhere
Lost your keys? With smart devices services, it only takes the push of a button to access your home.
You can open the door for whoever you need to, from wherever you are, with smartphone apps that put you in control of the front door.
Types of Smart Home Devices
Home Security Systems
Home security systems restore your confidence in your home’s defense. Automated security systems come equipped with an array of smart tech security cameras, audio, smart locks, and active alerts to keep your house secure.
Smart Locks and Video Doorbells
Whether locking the door behind you or locking up for the night, smart locks can be engaged for maximum security with the touch of a button, while video and audio assess if there is a threat on your doorstep.
Remote control thermostats keep your energy bill low with minute-to-minute monitoring of energy consumption. With the ability to conveniently raise or lower the temperature with the touch of a button, smart thermostats are the best way to cut costs while staying comfortable. Smart thermostats can also alert you if the temperature or humidity in your home rise above or drop below a desired level, allowing you to take action before the situation becomes an emergency.
Energy-efficient lighting can be turned to low power settings whenever necessary. As a result, you’ll save energy over time and keep your utility bills low. Avoid buying light bulbs from the store with energy-efficient smart bulbs that are designed to conserve power when you need it most. These systems can also be easily programmed to randomly turn lights on and off when not home to make it look like the house is occupied.
Blinds and Shades
Automated blinds and shades are some of the most convenient features of smart device services. Is too much glare from the sun hitting the TV screen? Simply set the blinds to lower at a certain time of day with your smartphone.
Sometimes the extra pair of hands you need comes from a reliable voice assistant device. Need to set a timer? Just set voice commands to a voice service module like an Amazon Alexa or Google Nest, and it’s done.
Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Smart alarms and detectors have been perfected to make immediate responses to fire and safety threats. Making the choice to protect your home with a new carbon monoxide detector or smoke alarm system will alert you to a threat much faster than the average system.
