How Home Automation Can Make Your Home Safe and Secure
Jul 01, 2014
In the information age, technological progress is occurring at an unprecedented rate. Smart phones and smart home automation make our lives easier and more convenient. They can also make us feel safer and more secure. If you are looking to learn about how smart home automation can make your home and your family safer and more secure, read about the prime examples discussed below.
Fire and Flood Prevention
Another safety benefit of having a fully automated home is that you can shut off lights that have accidentally been left on and check to see that your laundry machine has shut off after completing a cycle. Depending on what systems you choose to operate, you may even be able to tell if there is a leak in one of your pipes or a faucet is running.
How many times have you left home for work, to run errands, or (the worst!) head to the airport, only to experience a wave of anxiety about whether or not you remembered to lock all of your doors before you set off? By installing automatic locks in your home and having a smart home automation expert configure them, you will never have to worry about this again. Instead, you will be able to double check to see that you have locked them and rectify your mistake if you did not with a few finger swipes on your smart home.
Security Camera Monitoring
Having CCTV security monitoring can provide any homeowner with a certain peace of mind, but having security cameras in your home that you can monitor via your smartphone from across town or halfway across the world can provide a whole new level of comfort. From checking up on your kids to ensure that they are not in any trouble to scanning exterior cameras to make sure no funny business is taking place on the periphery of your home, automated security monitoring enables you to know what is happening on your property at all times.
The benefits of automating your home’s appliances and electrical systems are numerous, but safety and security are among the most valuable because they can provide you with peace of mind like you have never experienced before. You can read about some of the other benefits of home automation, such as energy consumption, efficiency, comfort, and time savings in our other blog posts. Apple users, there has never been a better time to make the switch to a smart home with the release of Apple’s HomeKit, a Contol4-compatible feature of iOS8 that makes integrating one’s home devices for control via smartphone easier than ever before.
