Years ago, we thought having a TV remote control was the best thing since sliced bread. We could sit on the couch, eat our TV dinners and not have to get up to change the channel. Technology has come a very long way since then, to say the least, and now, we have the technology to make high-tech gadgets and systems that work for us in right on our own home.
Just like everyone has a smartphone, it’s predicted that almost every home in America will be a “Smarthome” in the very near future. Here are a three reasons why having a home automation system is a great benefit for you and your family:
One of the best benefits to having home automation is that it can save you energy. Humans are forgetful sometimes. How many times have you reminded your kids to turn off lights when they are leaving the room? Do you often leave the house to go to work, but fail to adjust and lower the thermostat for when no one is home? These things that we commonly forget are costing us money every day.
According to the EPA, having a programmable thermostat and using it correctly, can reduce energy usage up to 30 percent. However, using a programmable thermostat may not be sufficient entirely as we have to remember to manually set it and adjust it. By implementing a home automation system, you can ensure that your home remains comfortable yet energy is being used efficiently and costs effectively.
No more “phantom” energy
A home automation system can alert you a number of everyday things that we often forget such as leaving a door or window open that is letting in cold air or when lights are left on without anyone present in a particular room. We often take for granted that leaving appliances and electronics plugged in also depletes energy whether we are using them or not. A home automation system can regulate appliances that are using standby power and turn them on and off as needed. Home automation is a great way to keep us green without having to even think about it.
Easy to use
Transforming your home into a “smarthome” is so easy. You can effortlessly manage and operate your system from either your computer or smartphone. Whether you are home or away, turning off your lights, locking your door or turning down the heat is just one quick click away!
