Why Automate Your Home
Why walk into a dark home when your exterior and interior lights can automatically come on when you press your remote garage door opener? Why come into a hot or cold home when you can enjoy the comfort of your home anticipating your arrival and adjusting the temperature to suit you… just before you arrive?
An automated home is about the convenience of saving your time and effort by having your home automatically do routine functions such as watering your grass (but only if it has not rained recently), or turning off all lights, setting the thermostat to economy mode and arming the security system when you retire for the night.
Home automation is about the security you have knowing that you can look in on your home remotely from anywhere in the world, or that your home will phone you if anything is amiss, or that a fire will alert your home to wake you, shut down the gas and ventilation system, turn on a lighting path for your escape, and automatically phone the fire department.
And it’s about the energy savings you will enjoy by assigning your home the responsibility of regulating the operation of lights, water heater, HVAC system, entertainment components, appliances and irrigation system so these devices are on only when needed. The benefits of an automated home are only limited by your imagination. You'll be going green, helping the environment and saving tons on your utilities!
Some practical applications of home automation
HVAC and energy management
If you leave work late you can remotely access the home automation system and adjust your HVAC and lighting to the time you expect to be home.
A home automation system will modify light settings, HVAC systems, hot water heater, pool and motors when your home is unoccupied.
Light a pathway to safely enter or exit your home or in case of emergency. Why not have lights turn on when you enter your driveway?
Set the mood for entertaining or romance with lighting “Scenes”.
Add motion sensors to conserve energy when you enter and leave the room, when you have your hands full, or forget to 'Hit the Switch'.
Check the front door, pool, child’s location, wellness of elderly family members, or pets locally or remotely for added peace of mind.
Virtually communicate and oversee home improvements and maintenance when away from home.
Digital locks are the next generation of locks for your doors. No more keys! You can easily unlock the door for the plumber while you're at work. The door will unlock for him, you can then re-lock it using your cell or computer after he is finished.
By using these items the automation system can permit access to your home and also simultaneously activate the automation system to initiate control.
For example, disarm security system, release a door lock, illuminate a pathway into the house, change the temperature settings of a thermostat, turn on your stereo and tv, send a message to a family member, etc.
Security & Fire Protection
Automated “fire suppression”. Turn off HVAC system in the event of a fire to stop the spread of smoke and circulation that will feed the fire.
Home Automation systems are a UL approved alarm and security system with built in auto phone dialer so you can decide if you want to pay for central monitoring station or have the system call those numbers you select in case of alarm.
Flash outdoor lights on and off to allow emergency vehicles locate the home.
The ability to listen in and broadcast messages to your home from a remote location.
