The outside temperatures change with the seasons – but that doesn’t mean your indoor climate has to. During those hot summer days and cold winter evenings, you can stay completely comfortable in your own home with a smart thermostat.
Integrating climate control in your installation lets you regulate and maintain your desired indoor temperature at all times. Schedule what preferred temperature you want your thermostat at, and it’ll respond accordingly depending on the time of day or day of the year.
You can also rely on your smart thermostat to integrate with your other smart technologies, such as motorized shades. As your shades lower and raise to adjust to the indoor temperature, your smart thermostat can alert your HVAC system to work only when needed to accommodate a drop or rise in temperature. This prevents your HVAC from overworking and raising your bills – and conserves energy as well!
Have your climate control adjust to energy-saving mode when you leave the house. Then, with the press of a button, it can turn back on to your specific settings before you even walk in through the door.
Lighting can transform a room entirely. Different light fixtures and designs make a living area what it is, so it’s crucial your automated lighting can be what your room needs it to be.
For a movie night in the media room, you’ll want minimal lighting to avoid glares on the TV screen. Whereas with a hangout with friends in the evening, you’ll want to turn up the room’s brightness. You can create these perfect lighting settings with “scenes.” At a simple press of a button, these scenes can activate and prepare a space for any occasion.
You can even schedule scenes to happen automatically, such as a “Good Morning” scene that activates when your alarm goes off. Your favorite song can fill the air, your shades can lift to let the sunlight in, and your lighting can slowly illuminate your bathroom and hallways leading down to the kitchen. Alternatively, at night, your lights can start to dim around the time you’re winding down and getting ready for bed. You’ll get to bed feeling relaxed and will wake up much more energized.
A smart home installation isn’t just about comfort or convenience – you can get peace of mind with smart security features and solutions. Your family’s safety is your number one priority, so you should install only the best products and technologies for your home – for when you’re there or away.
Set your system to “Away” before you leave for work or a long trip to ensure every door is locked, every shade is lowered, and every alarm is set. This setting can even have your motorized shades and lights work throughout the day as they normally would if you were at home. This will deter potential burglars from targeting your seemingly occupied home while you’re away on vacation.
With elevated security, you can take the stress out of leaving your home empty for any amount of time. And you can sleep soundly at night knowing your family is kept safe and well-protected.
