This Is What You're Missing from Not Investing in Smart Home Automation

Loretta Hughes

Some years back, smart home automation was considered a luxury for the rich. But today, almost every home has at least one smart home automation system. As you head into the future, you can be sure that having a smart home will almost be a necessity. If you haven't made the switch to a smart home, here are some things you're missing. 

The Safety of Automated Door Locks

Have you ever arrived in the office only to begin wondering if you locked your home front door? With smart home automation, you don't have to worry about this anymore. You can easily lock your doors using your smartphone at the comfort of your office desk. 

If you have young children who leave for school after you have left for work, automated door locks will also come in handy. Often, children forget to lock doors as they run out to catch the bus. Now, you can lock the doors from wherever you are and unlock them when they get back from school. 

Increased Awareness Brought by Security Cameras

With the fast-paced nature of modern life, you cannot be home all the time. You need to leave for work, attend meetings, and run businesses, which often means leaving your children back at home. As a responsible parent, this can be stressful as you want to know what your kids are doing every moment. 

Thanks to smart home automation, you can now monitor what's happening at home wherever you are, using your smartphone or PC. You can also lock out any unwelcome visitors at home to ensure your loved ones are safe. 

Convenience and Comfort

Ever imagined waking up to fresh-brewed hot coffee? Or controlling all your lighting, temperature, and sound systems with the tap of your fingers? With smart home automation, all these dreams can become a reality. Smart home assistants also eliminate the minor hassles in your home, so you can focus on things that matter. They can play your music, give you information, and control your home appliances using your voice instructions. 

The Chance to Maximise Energy Efficiency

Making your home more energy-efficient can help reduce your energy costs. You can program your lights to switch to evening modes when the sun sets or automatically turn on and off when you're in and out of your house, so you don't waste any energy.

You also have more control over your heating and cooling costs. You can program your thermostat to maintain a frugal temperature when you're away and your preferred temperature when you return. You can also install temperature trackers to accurately set your home temperatures. On top of that, smart home apps can analyse your energy consumption and give you suggestions on where you can save.

About Me
Exposed Wires: The Complexities Of Electrical Installation

Jonathon here. I am currently completing my electrical apprenticeship and I have to say, it has been a challenge. Before I started, I didn’t realise that there was so much involved in wiring a house or building. Safety, efficiency, aesthetics and costs all have to be taken into account. My boss is so patient. One customer asked us to leave electrical wires exposed because he wanted an “industrial effect”. My boss explained that it would be illegal and they compromised. I have really learnt that electrical installation is one area in which people should not take short-cuts or undertake home handiwork. This blog should help you to gain a little more insight into electrical installation and its intricacies. I hope you find it enlightening. Thank you for stumbling into my corner of the blogosphere.
