The Ideal Smart Home Automation
With life becoming so hectic lately, who doesn’t need help with the chores? You might have heard about home automation, but what does that exactly mean? When a home has the support of smart devices throughout, convenience becomes the name of the game. You may be surprised at the things that become possible with just the smartphone in the palm of your hand.
Home Security Priorities
A priority for most homeowners is safety. A home security system is at the top of the list. With smart home integration, you can make a schedule or a scene that your home can identify and be a step ahead of you to save time and worry. When you leave the house, your smart home can remind you to lock the doors or close the garage door. Your programmed security schedule can arm and disarm the alarm as you come and go for the day. Your home security cameras will be watching your home inside and out if that’s what you would like. The video doorbell will let you know if there is activity on your front step. If someone rings the doorbell, you can have a live conversation with them. They won’t know if you’re home or away. If the kids forget the key, or the neighbor has to bring in a package, you can open the front keyless lock from your smartphone and let them in.
More Than Just Alarm Systems
Your Smart Home can be programmed to volunteer for the chores. Either from your smartphone or a localized hub in your home, you can set a schedule for the daily routine of to-do items. Did you know that your home can wake up the kids? With smart blinds, they will open up and let that sunshine brighten up that room. Anything that is plugged into a smart outlet can be scheduled to turn on and off. Your thermostat will know when to adjust up or down, depending on who is home and save energy. The washing machine, the Roomba vacuum, dishwasher, and more can get cleaning with a simple command or schedule no matter where you may be.
Smart Home Comforts
Other than our necessary safety and the convenience of help around the house, could we ask for more? Yes. There is much more. If it has a wire or Wi-Fi capability, it can be programmed to serve you. From the coffee brewing in the morning, soft music turning on as you walk in the door after a long day, or just knowing your irrigation system watered the grass, each little item is one less thing for you to worry about. A Smart Home is about more than just spoiling us. It means security for our home, provides energy savings and gives us more control over what happens at home even when we are away. Give us a call at StarBrite and let us know what your needs are, and maybe a couple of those convenience items, and we will help customize a Smart Home system just for you!
