Home Automation is no longer an up and coming trend, it’s the current expectation for home security, utility savings and convenience. Home owners control lighting, temperature, access to the home, but other practical yet creative uses for home automation include:
- Lock Scheduling
This feature will allow you to remotely schedule access to your home for specific contacts, like your kids or dog walker. Guests can use a pin code for a specific time and date. Lock scheduling will allow you to monitor who is entering your home and you can change, delete, or restrict access to the home as well.
- Ceiling Fan Control Switch
Turning on, off or adjusting the speed of your ceiling fan is much more convenient from the comfort of your bed! Using a ceiling fan control switch on a remote or app, you’ll stay cozy in bed while customizing your fan speed.
- Tilt Sensor
This technology makes it easy to protect your home by informing you if your garage door or another door is open at any time. You can set up alerts so you will always know when a door or cabinet was opened. Protect your valuables or favorite cookies with tilt sensors.
- Get Flood Monitoring and a Smart Water Shut-off Valve
This system will let you know if any of your pipes have a leak. This is connected to your main water supply line and can quickly turn off your main water line. It will close automatically if a leak is detected and can help prevent against water damage. You’ll receive an alert on your mobile device in the event of a leak or flood.
- Install Card Access to Your Mailbox
Once mail gets delivered, a notification will be sent throughout the home. This will ensure that you always know when the mailman has arrived and you can make sure your mail is never compromised.
- Stream music throughout your home
You can install a dedicated keypad in each room to play each person’s favorite music. Everyone who lives in your household can make their own playlist. You can also incorporate other settings through your music to turn on even when you turn the shower on.
