What is Smart Home Technology and Automation?
Smart home technology is a system that allows you to control your home from anywhere. It can include things like lights, locks, thermostats and more.
Smart homes are becoming more popular because they offer many benefits such as:
Security – You can monitor your home remotely and see if anyone has entered it while you were away. Or, even if there’s an emergency situation occurring inside the house.
Energy efficiency – Smart thermostats learn how long it takes for the room to heat up or cool down. From this, they can learn when to turn on/off accordingly saving money on energy bills!
Lower energy bills – Smart thermostats can help you save money on your monthly utility bill by:
- Automatically learning your habits and adjusting the temperature accordingly.
- Allowing you to control the temperature from anywhere with an Internet connection. If you’re away from home, it’s easy to keep track of things without having to call anyone etc.
Security system integration – Many security systems come with built-in sensors that can detect when doors or windows open unexpectedly, as well as motion detectors that alert homeowners when someone has entered their property uninvited–allowing them time enough for police intervention before any harm is done!
Automated schedules – Set up automatic timers so lights come on when it gets dark outside without having to remember every night before bedtime (or even worse – forgetting). This also saves money because there’s no need for additional lighting during daytime hours when nobody will be home anyway; just turn off those lights manually whenever necessary instead of leaving them burning 24/7 like most people do!
