Lock it. Unlock it. Raise it. Lower it. View it. Heat it. Cool it. Light it up. Provide access. Deny access.
The current trending phrase in home security is home automation.
In addition to security for your home or business and peace of mind while you are away, convenience is yet another reason so many security-minded individuals are turning to home automation.
While everyone has felt the pinch of rising energy costs, this doesn’t mean you have to come home to a cold house at night just to keep your gas bill under control. With home automation, remotely adjust the thermostat so the house is warm when you arrive home from work. Away from your phone or computer during work hours? No problem. Set a scheduled time for thermostat adjustments and forget about it; just enjoy the convenience.
Darkness is looming closer and closer as winter sets in, and once again, home automation has a solution. No longer is our only choice to leave the lights on all day. Again, home automation allows certain lights to be turned on by command from your phone or computer, or on a schedule you set. Never walk into a dark, cold house again.
If you have a friend or family member stopping by to drop something off, you now have more choices than leaving a door unlocked or a plastic bag hanging from the doorknob, waiting to be stolen. Allow access to a trusted individual with the click of a button. Unlock the garage or any other equipped door, keeping your belongings and home secure. Once they depart, lock up again with another click. It’s as simple as that.
Home automation puts an end to wasting energy resources like heating an empty home or lighting an empty house. It ends wondering whether the doors were locked when you left this morning.
But again, it’s dark and cold out, and no one likes to come home to more dark and cold at home. Use the home automation aspect of your security system to make life more comfortable and convenient. It can save you time as well as save you money on energy expenses.
