While home automation was unheard of a decade ago, in 2018, home automation is the best gift you can give your family. Home automation refers to creating a network of all appliances in your home in such a way that their functionality is controlled by a cellular device connected to the internet. While home automation is a part of the Internet of Things (IoT), it stitches seamlessly with interior design and architecture. Your smart home gives you safety, convenience, control and savings all through the command of an app. Still wondering if this is for you? Read on as we give you all the reasons to upgrade!
Here are 5 Reasons Why should you get a smart home?
Smart homes seamlessly interface with the central management of your building to bring about an effortless user experience with every single device/ appliance in your house. A home automation system will control temperature, lights, security cameras, doors and windows among hundreds of other devices. It is an integrated home where everything is controlled from an app on a cellular device or through the groundbreaking voice assistants.
2. It saves
The plethora of its functions is really impressive and research proves that 70% of all smart home device customers made a second purchase! With a home automation system, there is really no limit to what your home can do with a remote command.
An Automated Home has the benefit of being environmentally friendly due to the conservation of energy and resources. The concept of green homes is greatly interlinked with automated homes. This is because the lighting system of a home can be easily switched off in case the user forgot to switch it off while leaving home through a mobile app.Also, the temperature is adjusted according to the weather and time of day. There are water monitoring controls that ensure no leakage and window blinds that go down automatically on a hot sunny day. All these are borne to save energy as well as electricity and water bills.
3. Making home much secure
Security is a hassle of the past with the advent of smart homes. You can install video doorbells and chat with a guest who’s standing at your door, while you’re at work or even hundreds of miles away. You can get a call when someone enters any corner of your property, get all your doors to lock automatically in case of a threat and even automatically call for safety if it detects a gas leak. A smart home detects faults and leaks, trespassers, and gives you the information well in advance.
Smart security options extend beyond the closed-circuit camera. Let’s take, for example, that you do not want to make it evident that your home is empty. Automated security systems will turn on the lights for a pre-set period. Even better is the fact that you can control the burglar alarm from your smartphone, even if you are thousands of miles away.
To keep your loved ones safe and sound, here are some of the fantastic range of products you can choose from:
- Smart locks
- Smoke alarms
- Carbon Monoxide detectors
- Smart water sensors
- Smart fencing
- Video Doorbells
- Ultra-smart cameras
- Voice-controlled lighting systems
4.Adds more luxury
Living in an automated home has a bespoke luxury of its own. The comfort of controlling everything from geysers to your coffee machine makes life easier when you’re working long hours. It is a life saver for senior citizens or people with physical disabilities. Anything with a power source and an internet connection can be automated, even things like water faucets and electric bulbs.
Another main attraction in automation is voice control over automated devices. Even though mobile apps are what people used to prefer, the trend is shifting towards voice-controlled technology.The popularity of this has increased due to the convenience of usage. Most end users find it easier and time-saving to control their devices via voice which is much speedier than typing. It is also found to be much more natural and fun. There is also the added advantage that the physically disabled and the elderly will greatly benefit as this will enable them to control the locks, lights, etc without any movement or support.
