The 21st century home automation technology has simplified how different tasks in our homes run and even made it possible for tasks to run independently. You can, for instance, set your automation system to wake you up at a particular time on weekdays by playing your favorite song and persist until you wake up but instruct the system not to persist in waking you up on the weekends. You can also instruct the system to ensure that all the lights are turned off and window blinds closed during the day when you’re not home, but for them to turn on and the house temperature to adjust to 70 degrees when you return home.

You can remotely control the gadgets in your house. For instance, you can switch on outdoor lights while comfortably watching a movie in your bedroom without interrupting the movie. You can also instruct your security system to alert the police and call your phone when someone tries to break into your home while you’re away.

Saving Money, Not Just Time

While smart home technology appears to some people like only a concept for gadget-gurus, its biggest selling point is actually in its money-saving capability. For example, using a smart thermostat is not just convenient; it can also help you gain some monetary benefits. A smart thermostat is designed with pre-sets and adaptive scheduling programmed to correspond with your life and ensure your home is comfortable at all times. You can even control this from your wrist or your phone while you are away. Smart lighting is also a feature of home automation that helps save money. This can be through motion sensors which turns off lights in rooms detected to be unoccupied for a certain time duration. This will help utilize less electricity and at the same time extend the bulb life.

Streamlining Gadgets

A key feature of every home automation system is the ability to integrate well with other systems or products in the home. focuses on interoperability which makes their systems better than for other home automation companies.

Although many cheap DIY smart home hardware have cropped up, these become quickly out-dated since they lack support for a wider ecosystem. They are also a lot harder to install and to upgrade.
