The Benefits of Home Automation
Just as smartphones were the major tech development in the early 2000s, the development of smart homes is now the “next big thing”. With the key advantages of a smart home being safety, security, convenience, time and money savers, what was once considered a luxury and a way for wealthy homeowners to show off, is now our dramatically more affordable reality.
Providing increased efficiency, control and customization, you can control your entire home from a single app on the device of your choosing. This greatly reduces the new user learning curve. And you shouldn’t underestimate that power of being able to control your home from a distance.
Major highlights include the ability to adjust the temperature in your house to ensure your comfort once you walk through the door, as well as, the ability to make your home much more energy efficient. Motorized shades and lighting can be pre-programmed to prevent you from wasting energy. Or better yet, the lighting can be programmed to automatically turn on and off when you enter or leave a room. Not only can you pre-heat your oven as you’re leaving the grocery store, but with just a little bit of information, your smart-oven can guarantee that you don’t overcook or undercook your dinner. Imagine being able to set your motion detectors, lock all your doors and view your surveillance cameras as you’re heading to bed. Or waking up in the morning and watching the news or checking the weather right from your bathroom mirror.
Another incredible benefit of a smart phone is insight reports. You can see how many hours a day your family watches televisions and what they’re watching. What foods are in your refrigerator. Even what kind of meal you recently cooked. And, of course, you are able to track your energy consumption.
