Spring Cleaning and Home Automation
Spring cleaning isn’t only about cleaning your home; it’s also about simplifying the technology in your home. Now that technology makes up such a big part of our lives, it’s important to keep it organized. The following are a few tips for spring cleaning with home automation.
Get rid of the extra remotes
Instead of dealing with a whole bunch of different remotes for your DVD/Blu-ray payer, sound systems, and TV, control everything with a universal remote. You can even control lighting, climate, distributed audio, and much more with a universal remote. Savant Systems offers a Wi-Fi based remote which is self-configuring once connected to the network. It allows users to control a variety of devices in their home or workplace without having to point or aim directly at the device because of its Wi-Fi connectivity.
Set up handy reminders so that you’ll never forget important home maintenance tasks that you need to get done only once or twice a year, but often forget. Control4 offers a home automation system in which you can set email or text alerts, or even audio announcements that are heard in your entire home to remind you to take care of these important tasks when it’s time to get them done. A few examples of important tasks you can set reminders for with a Control4 system:
- Inspect, test, and change the batteries on smoke/fire alarm systems
- Clean your gutters
- Change the HVAC filter
- Have a professional inspection of your cooling system
- Clean refrigerator coils
- Fertilize the lawn
- Inspect roofing
- Inspect the exterior of your home
Reduce cable clutter
Tired of having a whole bunch of different cables creating clutter all over the floor? Reduce the clutter and keep your home theater organized by mounting your TV on the wall. This way, you’ll have a clean living space instead of having a cluttered table and floor.
Customize (or upgrade) your home automation system
Customize your home automation system to be just the way you want it to be. Set the perfect lighting scheme for you, the ideal climate, and set the right atmosphere for every room in your home by playing a different song depending on your mood or activity.
By simplifying the technology in your home with a home automation system, you’ll be transforming your house into a smart home and essentially freeing up space.
