We have been giving you advice and explaining home automation for some time now and it just occurred to me that I have never explained exactly what Smart Home Automation is to begin with. While this is a fairly new trend and there is a ton of interest in it, there are still some folks out there who don’t know what it is on a very basic level. Let’s take a look at what home automation is.
Home automation is a way that all of the devices and appliances in your home can be networked together. The way in which we do it here at Architechtronics we set up your system so that you have seamless control over all aspects of our home. While home automation has been around from many decades in terms of lighting recently technology has caught up with the concept of the complete interconnected home. A good home automation system will allow you full control of your home from anywhere via a tablet or smart phone. A home automation will allow you to dictate how a device should react, when it should react, and why it should react. You set the schedule and the rest is automated.
By, besides the obvious cool factor, would a person want a home automation system? Well control of your home for starters. You can literally control and automate just about every device and appliance within your home; how convenient is that? Imagine adjusting the temperature from your bed or controlling the volume of your whole-house audio system from any room or even from the car on your way home from work? How cool would it be to be able to operate the wall/ceiling heater in your bathroom ensuring that it comes on automatically on chilly mornings 5 minutes before your alarm clock goes off?
Then there is safety. Home automation can ensure that your very home is always on guard. Home automation provides security, safeguarding your home whether you are there or not. From a security camera watching over the house to a water sensor that will alert you of a possible costly leak is occurring; safe is the name of the game.
There is another consideration when considering a home automation system….good old fashion fun. Home automation allows you to get involved on a very personal level with exactly how your home operates. You get to set your personal preferences and actions and then sit back and enjoy the latest in home automation technology. Most of the high-tech products for the home automation system are fun to use. From viewing visitors at your front door on your TV to tuning your stereo by using voice recognition, you’ll find that it is a fun system that allows you to show off in front of your friends and impress the kids’ school mates.
