What does a smart home look like? You may not be able to tell from just a quick glance.
Often, these homes are indistinguishable from standard homes. Sometimes you can only tell from looking at the homeowners — they look happy and relaxed because they have more peace of mind and more free time on their hands.
What can making your home smart do for you?
Save You Money
Investing in smart home technology can save you money in several ways, but the most common is by controlling your HVAC. Sure, you may have a programmable thermostat now, but it’s not the same. A smart thermostat learns the comfort levels and habits of your entire family, adjusting to your needs more and more precisely as time goes on.
Plus, you can set the more advanced systems to different temperatures in different rooms, providing more individualized comfort and saving energy at the same time.
Remote control for your blinds or shades also saves money, primarily by either letting in or keeping out the sunlight, depending on the season. You can also save money by having your system turn lights and electronics off when no one is using them.
Save You Time
Once you program your preferences into your system, you don’t have to think about them again unless you want to make a change. Your lights will come on and go off, your thermostat will adjust, your doors will lock — all on their own.
Protect Your Family and Belongings
A good security system is a necessity in this day and age. The types available with smart home technology are better than a live security guard, because there’s no room for human error.
These systems can be set up to arm every window and door in your home, plus provide live, streaming video of any potential intruders, not to mention calling the police for you. The only thing these systems can’t do is cuff the burglars and transport them downtown — yet.
Do you really want to get out from under the covers to close the blinds when the moon moves right in front of the window while you’re trying to watch your favorite show? What if the dog is waiting for its dinner, but you’re just getting to the good part? Just stay comfortable and press a button.
Make Your Home Fun Again
’Tis the season for colored lights, and not just on the bushes out front, but in your foyer and living room and anywhere else you want a blast of color. Stream music into the bathroom and switch the song with a simple voice command. You know you love giving orders, and your family isn’t going to follow them, so rely on a smart home system to recognize who’s the boss.
