Smart Home Automation

Home Automation is No Longer a Thing of the Past.

It seems like the word “smart” is being placed in front of everything. The newest trend in the smart technology world is having a "Smart Home".

If you’re anything like us, we depend on our electronic devices to keep us organized and make our lives simpler. Now we can use those same devices to do amazing things with our home!

Many of us have automated thermostats to help us maintain a lower cost on energy. With the new smart home technology, now you can adjust it on the fly from anywhere! For example, if your child gets sick at school around 10am and you have to go pick them up to take them home; instead of coming in to your home at 78-82 degrees where most of us keep it when the house is vacant, you can open an app on your smart phone, change the temperature of your thermostat back down to 71-75 degrees where it’s comfortable and not have to worry about waiting for it to cool down after you arrive.

Like most American families, we all love a good 1-2 week vacation when we can get it. But, crime statistics and common sense show that your home is very vulnerable to break-ins during that time. So, while you’re sitting on the beach in Maui, you can turn on your TV or a radio and make sure your lights are on all in efforts to make the home appear as though it is occupied. The lighting control options also are terrific conveniences for those of us who don’t get home from work until after dark (which we pretty much all do come winter). It’s much more comfortable walking into a well-lit home than walking into the dark.

Let’s not forget about the cool factor! Do you ever host parties or get-togethers at your home? Whole home automation is a dream come true for those who love to entertain! Picture this in your mind… your guests arrive and you unlock the door for them, turn on the pool lights, turn up your outdoor sound system, and fire up the slow cooker full of dinner inside all with a few button pushes on your smart phone or tablet.

I mean really, how cool is that?
