Home automation is becoming increasingly common and incredibly easy. While at its inception it was fairly complicated, a vast majority of home automation is now as simple as plugging in and syncing with an app. In addition to it being so easy, here are 3 more reasons that you should automate your home!
1. It saves you money. One of the best reasons to invest in your home is that it will help you reduce your energy bill. Home automation allows for you to control your environment from whenever you are and reduce power usage when it is not needed. Instead of running your air conditioning or heater all day, the automation calculates the most efficient run schedule so that your home is exactly the temperature you want it when you are there, resulting in a great environment and a reduced energy bill.
2. It provides peace of mind. We have all had that moment when we can’t remember if we turned off the stove or locked the front door. With proper home automation, not only can you check the status of your doors, garage doors, and appliances, but even remotely lock or shut them off from your smartphone. This allows you to ensure the safety of your residence and prevent unneeded trips home to turn off that iron that you accidentally left on.
3. It significantly improves your home’s security. This is perhaps one of the greatest things that home automation can do for your home and your family’s safety. With real-time notifications, you can constantly be in the know about the status of your home’s perimeter. Additionally, automated response protocols ensure that emergencies are responded to in industry leading time. In the case of fires and leaks, home automation not only alerts the necessary parties, but can automatically shut off sources to limit damage and reduce risk to your family.
