Remember the days when you had to get up to change the channel on your television? Now if you can’t find your remote, getting up to change the channel seems like a huge chore. Like a remote control, an automated home system controlled by your smartphone or tablet device will change the way that you interact with technology in your home. With apps on your phone you no longer have to get out of your chair to do things like change the thermostat, lighting or security system. If that isn’t enough reason for you to purchase home automated apps four your smartphone or tablet, here are some other immediate benefits:
- Convenience- There is so many ways that installing an automated home system app on your smartphone can make your life easier and more convenient. The app allows you to control different devices on one app. So if you are throwing a party and you want to turn the music down, the air conditioning up and change the lighting you don’t have to run all over your house to do it. You can just open your phone, click on the app and in a few seconds everything is done. Some cool settings that could further your convenience are timer settings so during those cold winter mornings you can set a higher heat setting on a timer to turn on and off at your convenience. You can also set up your television so that when you turn it on using your smartphone or tablet it will open to your favorite channel and most used audio setting.
- Security- Having security systems installed in your home is now common practice, but you have to turn them on for them to actually work. One way installing an automated home system can improve the security of your home is that you don’t need to be in your house to turn something on or off. For example, if you are on vacation and realize that you forgot to turn on your security system you can just open your smartphone or tablet and do it. Not only that, but there are settings for your automated home system app on your smartphone where you can get updated security alerts immediately as well as receiving live streaming security feeds right on your smartphone or tablet.
- Energy Efficient- Installing an automated home system app on your smartphone or tablet is kind of like hiring a housekeeper that can change the settings of your home while you are gone. One way automated home systems cut down your energy costs is that you can set your home devices according to your schedule. If no one is in your home from 9am-5pm you can set your devices to run at a lower energy level or even turn them off to save energy when no one is home. Then you can set it so that they turn on a half hour before you get home. That way when you walk in your home it will feel like someone has been there all day, but it will cost you a lot less.
