And How It Adds Convenience, Comfort, and Peace of Mind.
WHAT IS SMART HOME AUTOMATION?
Smart home technology generally refers to any suite of devices, appliances, or systems that connect into a common network that can be independently and remotely controlled. When your home technology works together in one system, it can also be referred more loosely as a “connected home”.
For example, your home's thermostat, lights, audio speakers, TVs, security cameras, locks, appliances, and more are all connected into a common system, which can be controlled from your smart phone or through a mobile touch screen device.
Smart home automation allows you to tap into high-tech functionality and luxury that wasn’t possible in the past. As technology development continues to expand, so will the possibilities for consumer home automation to make life easier and more enjoyable.
You might think of smart home automation as a nifty way to keep up with the latest technology, or an opportunity for homeowners to show off, but there are some incredible practical advantages to home automation.
Here they are:
1. Managing all of your home devices from one place.
Being able to keep all of the technology in your home connected through one interface is a massive step forward for technology and home management.
All you’ll have to do is learn how to use one app on your smartphone or tablet, and you’ll be able to tap into countless functions and devices throughout your home.
2. Maximise home security.
Incorporating security and surveillance features into your smart home network, will enhance the capabilities to home automation.
For example, home automation systems can connect motion detectors, surveillance cameras, automated door locks, and other tangible security measures throughout your home so you can activate them from one mobile device before heading to bed, from the office or simply from the comfort of you living room.
You can also choose to receive security alerts on your various devices depending on the time of day an alert goes off, and monitor activities in real-time whether you’re in the house or not.
3. Remote control of home functions.
On an exceptionally hot day, you can order your house to become cooler in just enough time before you get home from work.
If you’re in a hurry to get dinner started but you’re still at the store, you can have your oven start to preheat while you’re still on your way home.
You can even check to see if you left the lights on, who is at your front door, or make sure you turned off all your media while you’re away.
And for those parents out there, you can check if the children left the door unlocked...Making your life easier.
4. Increased energy efficiency.
Depending on how you use your smart-home technology, it’s possible to make your space more energy-efficient.
You can have more precise control over the heating and cooling of your home with a programmable smart thermostat that learns your schedule and temperature preferences, and then suggests the best energy efficient settings throughout the day.
Lights and motorised shades can be programmed to switch to an evening mode as the sun sets, or lights can turn on and off automatically when you enter or leave the room, so you never have to worry about wasting energy.
5. Home management insights.
There’s also something to be said for your ability to tap into insights on how your home operates.
You can monitor how often you watch TV, what kind of meals you cook in your oven, the type of foods you keep in your refrigerator, and your energy consumption habits over time.
From these insights, you may be able to analyse your daily habits and behaviours, and make adjustments to live the lifestyle you desire.
