Five Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to A Smart Home
Do you ever leave home with a feeling that you forgot something? Maybe you didn’t turn down the thermostat, turn off your air conditioning unit, or the lights. Or worse, were the doors closed. Well, the beauty about the technology available today is that you are able to verify all this and more. Today’s home automation technologies allow you to easily monitor and secure your family, home and valuable possessions, as well as automate your systems for comfort. From doors, windows, locks to lights, a smart home can automate all these functions with ease.
For most people, convenience seems to be the main reason to invest in a home automation system. Not quite. Below are the top five reasons you should invest in smart home technology.
A smart home can facilitate automatic and remote locking of your doors should you rush out without closing them. Automated door locks also offer the feature of alerting you each time someone accesses your home. Together with an integrated security camera system that allows you to monitor your home remotely, you will be in control of home access.
Another smart home technology that benefits the home owner is the use of wireless sensors to monitor your home for smoke, toxic gas, flood, fire, and of course, motion. This wireless system can also be monitored by a life protection company that will alert the relevant emergency units, especially if you are unreachable due to being out of the state or country.
3. Energy Efficiency
Automated systems are optimized for energy efficiency. By automating the adjustment of your thermostat, turning on/off your air conditioning units and lights, closing/opening your blinds and shades, your home system will achieve maximum efficiency, and inevitably, savings.
Speaking of savings, automated home systems help you to reduce your utility bills whether they be electric or gas, especially through energy conservation. In addition, utilizing smart home technologies can also help in the reduction of your home insurance costs due to reduced risks associated with smart homes.
An automated home system allows you to monitor and control your home not just from a central point in your house, but also from your smart phone or computer anywhere in the world. Comfort also means being greeted at home with your preferred settings for lighting and temperature.
These systems should not be installed in isolation. You need an integrated control system to ensure maximum protection and reap all the benefits of a smart home. American Total Protection (ATP) provides home automation that makes a difference and the smart home technologies to suit your needs.
