Are you looking to simplify the way you run your household? Embrace a comprehensive solution with smart home control. It can improve your way of life by uniting all of your technology under one roof. At first glance, this helps by allowing you to manage your entire home from one place, such as a touchpad, tablet or smartphone. But there's a reason it isn't just called "centralized control." It's the smart aspect that actually makes the technology shine. Imagine if your Bellaire, Texas home was able to anticipate your needs. With smart control, it can do so in these distinct ways.
Enhance Your Safety with Smart Sensors
The simplest way to get your home to anticipate your needs is through the use of sensors. These are hardly a new concept. Smoke detectors set off the fire alarm without you having to be physically in the room yelling "Fire!" Motion sensors can set off security alarms without you having to see an intruder before authorities are alerted. Smart home control expands on this idea is by incorporating multiple types of sensors and responses.
For example, those motion sensors in your yard not only set off the alarm but also flood the area with light. This way it's easy to get images of intruders on your surveillance cameras. What about that smoke detector? Not only is the fire alarm set off, but your HVAC system is also shut off to avoid fanning the fire. You also receive a notification on your phone, so you're immediately alerted to what is happening.
Streamline Your Daily Routines with Pre-Set Scenes
Your smart home automation system is also useful is when it comes to creating scenes. These scenes allow you control multiple components. A "Wake Up" one, for example, can slowly raise up the lighting levels, adjust your thermostat and begin a chosen playlist. There are two ways to use these scenes: access them manually or schedule them.
Through scheduling, your system can anticipate your needs and prepare your home accordingly. What would be the point of a "Wake Up" scene if you couldn't get it to occur at a given time every morning? Scheduled scenes can also help with your home security. A "Good Night" scene ensures doors are locked, lights turned off, and your security system activated when you go to sleep.
The ultimate smart scene is a "Vacation" setting. As you continue to use your smart control, it learns your usual routines, specifically when it comes to your lights and shades. When you go on vacation, this setting recreates those routines while you're away. This way, you enhance security by making sure your home never looks unattended for long periods of time.
