Smart technology has become an integral part of our lives. The industry is exploding with options and excitement. In the last couple of years alone, around 30 million households adopted some element of smart home technology. But what is it and why do we need home automation?
Simplify daily lives
Home automation is the automation of common household activities and processes having a centralized control. The devices and appliances are connected and can relay information which is then collated. Having information about regular usage can help the system to respond to your needs, or point out important abnormalities. It is complex technologies that make life simple.
Improved safety is one of the top two reasons people opt into home automation systems. Systems use the collected information of connected devices and motion sensors to know when you leave the house and can close the smart garage door, turn off lights, or lock smart locks. You can also tap in through a smart app and turn off forgotten connected appliances so you can avoid causing a fire.
Care for family
With home automation features such as smart cameras, video doorbells, and motion sensors, you can provide even better care to your family. Whether it is using motion sensors to know if a sick or aged loved one is getting around enough or wandering at odd hours, or using the smart cameras to know that the kids made it home or are playing safely outside, smart technologies offer a wealth of support.
Home automation can help you reduce your energy consumption by automatically adjusting the thermostat based on the time of day, open and close shades to take advantage of daylight, adjust lights to reduce electricity usage and keep your family’s budget in check
