Home Automation is the idea of putting certain aspects of your house under remote control via your tablet or phone to make your life easier. Everything from your light switches to your stereo can be accessed by the touch of a tablet or a cell phone, and if done correctly home automation can provide untold benefits to your home and work life.
- Saving money- Home automation can allow you to control your home’s air conditioning, heating, and lights in order to turn them on and off when they aren’t needed. If you go on a long vacation, work a sudden late night at the office, or just need to make some changes on a budget. You’ll be able to turn the air conditioning to what you desire, turn off the heating and lights if no one’s home and save money without even leaving your chair!
- Safety and security- Connecting certain aspects of your home to a keychain or phone will allow you to keep your house safe. Camera systems in your house can be attached to your phone, giving you 24/7 access to see what’s happening in your home. Whether you want to make sure your child gets home from school okay or to make sure your house is safe when you’re away, home automation can allow you to prevent problems by keeping you notified. You can even attach an alarm system to your phone, allowing an alert to be sent to you when an alarm is tripped.
- Ease of access- Do you hate having a cold bathroom when you get up in the morning? Do you not like having to wait five minutes for a cup of coffee to get started? With home Automation, you can set your bathroom heater or your coffee maker to turn on at a preset time, cutting down on micromanagement for tasks you do every day. It frees you up to do more important things as some tasks are completed for you.
- Fun benefits- Do you have a large party in your home and want to turn the music up throughout various rooms? Would you like to dim the lights for a romantic evening with your spouse? Do you have a large dinner planned and want to start cooking a little earlier? With home automation, all these things can be done, and the fun can get started with a simple tap of a finger on a screen.
Home automation is a new technology, but its benefits can not only change your life but also make it easier, allowing you to have more control, more security, and more happiness in your day to day activities in your home.
