How Do You Control Your Smart Home Automation System?
Customized Controls for Hyrum Residents
Some people think smart home automation is complex. Actually, it’s very simple. With a single command, you can control all of the integrated components throughout your Hyrum, Utah property. You can group functions together to work in multiple rooms or you can utilize each device individually. Smart technology is all about simplicity. So that only leaves the question: what’s the simplest way to control your smart home? The answer is different for everybody. In this blog, we’ll show you the many ways you can take advantage of everything your system can do.
Dedicated Control Devices
The primary means of controlling the technology throughout your property is a dedicated control device. This can be a remote control akin to the universal remote you use on your television (in fact, the same device can control your TV, too), a simple hard-buttoned wall panel or even a removable touch screen interface.
The benefit of a dedicated device is that it’s simple, customizable and easy to use. Have an integrator craft pre-set scenes and you can design a wall panel featuring the names of each for easy access. They help reduce clutter and don’t take up too much space, while remaining aesthetically pleasing.
Smartphones and tablets have revolutionized the way we communicate and access information. We take them virtually everywhere, so it only stands to reason that we should use them to control our home’s integrated technology. Many smart home manufacturers provide downloadable apps that you can use to enjoy the benefits of your system.
One of the best things about smart home apps is that they look exactly like the interface you’ll find on the touch-panel installed on your wall. That means you don’t have to re-learn how to use and enjoy all of your favorite smart home features – just open the app and begin.
Among the biggest advances in smart home technology has been the development of voice controlled automation. Essentially, you say what you want your home to do, and it does it. One of the most popular devices for this kind of control, Amazon’s Echo, has swept the world by storm.
That’s why Control4, a world leader in smart technology, has recently announced that they will partner with Amazon to make their systems integrate. That means you can enjoy one of the most reliable voice control devices and the service and reliability of Control4.
