Smart Home Automation: Enhancing Your Lifestyle and Security

Smart home automation improves many aspects of owning a home and feeling secure. Come explore how smart home automation devices can improve your lifestyle and security, as well as how you can achieve this today.

What smart home automation does for your home

On top of security, smart home automation devices make life simpler and more enjoyable. At your fingertips, you’ll manage your home and set schedules for things that need to happen in you and your family’s life.

Things like temperature, lighting, locks, and entertainment systems can be managed through a handheld device so you aren’t rushing through the house trying to set things to your evening routine.

Smart home automation devices can communicate with each other so after you’ve set the rules, your house is automated, and acts as you want it to, when you want it to. This leaves you time, space, and peace of mind to focus on other things. 

Let’s say you spend thirty minutes each day completing menial tasks, such as turning off lights, turning the TV or the music on or off, locking doors, checking cameras, or adjusting the temperature. Not only does smart home automation give you that thirty minutes back, but those daily thirty minutes amount to over 182 hours for the year. That’s a lot of time to spend doing more meaningful, enjoyable tasks.

The types of people to benefit from smart home automation devices are those who:

  • feel bogged down by menial tasks
  • want more time for what matters to them
  • value security and awareness
  • want to save on energy bills
  • want their home to cater to them
  • want to provide for their families

Real-life applications of smart home automation

One point of control

Instead of multiple points throughout your home to manage (thermostats, garage door panels, front and back locks, etc.) have everything connected to one handheld device for ultimate control wherever you are. Smart home automation devices are so convenient because they link what’s in your home to one point of control where everything can be addressed. Lock your doors from in bed. Check on your deliveries from work. Turn on the heat from outside.

Smart lighting

We tend to forget about lights during the day and we often don’t need many of them, even we’re home. When you leave a room, you might forget to turn off the light, but it’s still on, and you’re certainly not using it. Smart home systems can detect if you’re in the room (or home at all), and adjust the lights accordingly. You can even set them to change colours or brightness depending on your mood and the time of day.

Smart blinds and curtains

You’ll no longer have to open and close blinds and curtains as you go about your day. Whether you’re home or not, you can set the blinds to open and close at certain times depending on where the sun is and how much natural light you want entering your home. And, of course, have everything close automatically if you’re away or it’s nighttime.

Reliable locking systems

This is a necessity for security. With smart home automation devices, you can either lock and unlock doors at your discretion or have them set to lock and unlock under certain parameters. This can let kids in after school or close the house for the evening. When you’re away from home, consult your handheld device to ensure your home is secure.

Energy saving

Devote your spending to other parts of life by saving on energy bills. Smart home automation allows you to time and control your home’s temperature, lighting, and appliances so they aren’t wasting unnecessary energy. Setting your thermostat according to your habits will ensure it isn’t running when it’s not needed. Controlling your lights ensures they aren’t on, wasting energy, when no one is around.

Home entertainment

Make your home experience and hosting more luxurious with automated home entertainment systems. Connect smart home automation devices to your lighting, music, and TV to control them all from one place and create the desired atmosphere.

Smart home automation devices benefits

Save on time

With the possibilities of smart home automation, save time every day so you can do something that matters more. Stop spending so much time securing the house every evening. Do it at the touch of a button while you’re enjoying family movie night.

Be energy efficient

Configure your lighting systems and thermostats to work when needed and stop when unneeded. Use sensors to inform your smart home automation devices whether or not someone is home, thus controlling your energy consumption for a reduced carbon footprint and a smaller utility bill.

Experience powerful security

Feel confident in a home armed with smart, fast-acting security. Whether the home is empty or there are pets, children, or valuables inside, have the peace of mind knowing you can check in on your home at any moment and make smart decisions from anywhere.

Personalize your space

On top of efficiency and security, enhance your lifestyle with personalization. Everyone’s day-to-day is different, as is the way they want to spend time in their home. Some people want to come home to a calm, cozy home after a hard day’s work. Some people work from home and need the house to change throughout the day to cue their minds and bodies that the evening has begun. Personalize the lighting, timings, temperature, and routines of your home to make it most comfortable and helpful to you.
