Smart Homes Make Life Easier This Summer
A home automation system is like an integrated, complete, all-in-one security system with a fire alarm, temperature monitor, motion detectors, security cameras and password-protected doors. It can even call 911 (automatically) in case of emergency. In the past, people used to think a home automated system was extremely expensive, and only the wealthy could afford to have one. However, today, the advances in technology made home automation systems more affordable than ever before.
Summer is already here, and the kids will be out of school until late August (or early September, depending on where you live). Maybe you’ve planned to go on vacation with your family, or maybe you’ll have to work while your kids stay at home the whole summer. Either way, a home automation system will make your life much easier, as it helps you monitor and control your home from anywhere in the world.
You can keep an eye on your kids (and pets) while you’re away. No need to wait until you get home to check if your kids actually did their chores. You can also check if your kids are wreaking havoc throughout your house while you’re away. If something happens, you’ll be first one to know. If there’s a fire while your kids are at home (God forbid), your home automation system will warn you instantly and also call 911. Moreover, you can even program the home automation system to start recording whenever the motion sensors detect something (anything), and you can see the video clips in your smartphone, tablet, or PC.
On the other hand, if you’ve got to work while your kids are at home, maybe you’ve hired a trustworthy nanny… or maybe you hired a petsitter to take care of your pets. Either way, they’ll be coming to your home frequently. With a home automation system, you don’t need to give them the keys to your home. Instead, you can give them a “user access code”, so they can let themselves in (and out) without keys, easily and hassle-free. You are the only one who can choose who can enter your home, and you can do it from anywhere in the world.
And there’s more. You see, for most homeowners, heating and cooling their homes is expensive and boosts the costs of their electricity bills. While a home automation system won’t improve the efficiency of poorly maintained (and rarely serviced) heaters, boilers, furnaces, or air conditioning systems… you can save a large chunk of money by programming your home to stop cooling (or heating) empty rooms and unoccupied areas of your house – and you can even tell your home to turn off the A/C while you’re away, and start cooling while you’re about to arrive. You can also program your home to turn off the lights (especially those you forget all the time), so you’re not wasting energy while you’re not at home.
