Are you ready to improve your home’s comfort, convenience, security, and efficiency? Then check out what home automation can do for you. Here’s a closer look at some of the most valued benefits of smart home automation.
Energy Efficiency & Savings
Automated thermostats contribute to a 10–12% increase in heating efficiency and a 15% increase in cooling efficiency. The average savings for homeowners equals $131–$145 annually.
Switching to automated LED light bulbs will reduce your energy consumption by 75%. Smart ENERGY STAR automated ceiling fans now contain occupancy sensors that operate only when someone is in the room. They can also mimic cool breezes through variable fan speeds. In addition, automated entertainment systems, appliances, garage doors, and other systems combined can save you an additional $100 to $400 in energy costs annually.
Comprehensive Property Security
There is no substitute for today’s advanced home security systems. An automated system allows you to observe who is gaining access to your premises. With flexible programming options, you can manage several levels of permissions and control of which visitors and guests have to access particular areas of your property. Installing automated surveillance cameras diminishes your losses and increases visitor or intruder accountability.
Automated security allows you to require credentials from all visitors or guests to ensure you are in control of who enters your property at any given time. The greatest benefit to all of these features is that you can program and manage all of them from your computer or smart device via a user-friendly app.
Comfort & Convenience
Home automation systems have the capability of integrating every major (and even some small) system, appliance, or electronic device in your home. Just as you can use smartphones and other mobile devices to compartmentalize and organize your personal life, you can also organize your automated systems.
For example, heating and air-conditioning systems can be easily activated from your mobile device via a home app. If you forget to adjust or set any system inside or outside, you don’t have to get up off your couch or out of bed. Simply pull out the app or the remote and adjust the system however you want. Automated systems allow you to save time, money, and energy all at once.
Full User Control & Programming
Consumers also choose smart home devices to better control functions within the home. With home automation technology, you can know what’s happening inside your home at all times.
Some people use smart technology to record shows or to play music throughout the home. Connected devices can also help create a comfortable atmosphere—they provide intelligent and adaptive lighting, sound, and temperature, which can all help create an inviting environment.
You have even more control when you configure your automated system with a voice assistant such as Alexa, Google assistant, Sonos One, Amazon Echo, or Apple HomePod. You can scatter multiple devices around your home or operate everything from a single device or your phone.
