3 Reasons It’s Time to Invest in a Smart Home Automation System
Your Logan Property Will Never Be the Same
You’ve probably heard of it; maybe you’ve seen it on TV, or you know a friend who’s bragging about it. We’re talking about smart home automation. There’s no easier way to increase your comfort, enhance entertainment and simplify the security of your Logan, Utah property than with home technology. Your spaces quickly become more enjoyable and easier to manage than ever before with a system that integrates all of the devices in your home under a single, simple and user-friendly interface. In this blog, we’ll take you through three reasons why it’s time to invest in a smart home system. Read on to learn more.
Your home is designed to keep you comfortable. Everything from providing enough light to read by even in the dead of night to maintaining a consistent temperature while the sun is sweltering outside. That means your home already contains plenty of technology – so why wouldn’t you want to combine those devices to work together and save you energy?
When you integrate your learning thermostat with smart motorized shading, your home automatically reacts to uphold your standards of comfort. When the temperature starts to rise in a room, the thermostat begins to cool, and a signal is sent to lower the shades. As the shades lower, your lights automatically rise to give you enough light even with the windows closed. Plus, you’ll get real-time updates on your control device that inform you of exactly how much energy you’re using – meaning you can adjust it for comfort and cost.
Of course, when the shades are drawn you may as well watch a movie – and integrated technology can help. With the same device you used to adjust the temperature (be it a smartphone, tablet or dedicated remote) you can take control of the ultimate entertainment system.
Turn on your 4K UHD TV and raise the volume on the surround sound system. Dim the lights with the touch of a button and select a movie from a vast library of digital content. With streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, as well as a dedicated media server from Kaleidecape, you have access to nearly infinite movie content. And you don’t have to worry about Blu-rays and DVDs taking up space, you can upload them onto your media server for instant use in any room thanks to a media distribution system.
A More Secure Home
When you’re in the middle of a movie, you probably don’t want to get up and answer the door, that is, unless the pizza guy is waiting outside. With integrated security features you can check to see who is outside and communicate with them in real-time without getting up from the couch.
Just stream footage from your connected surveillance cameras or smart entry system directly to your television or tablet. Once you’ve confirmed his identity (and ogled the delicious pizza he’s holding) you can let him know remotely that you’ll be right there.
If it’s not the pizza guy, but instead some friends who’ve come to join you for a movie marathon, the press of a button on your tablet will unlock the door and let them inside. Afterward, when everyone has gone home simply shut down the house – the lights, the TV and sound system turn off while the doors throughout your property lock – with one touch.
