Top 3 Benefits of a Home Automation System
Experience Greater Comfort, Entertainment and Security in Your Portland Property
It’s no secret that technology is becoming even smarter. From the phone in your pocket to the thermostat on the wall, every device you own is beginning to learn and adapt to make your life easier. So why not take advantage of these developments with an advanced, intuitive and easy-to-use home automation system? Connect your devices for the ultimate luxury, comfort and style. In this blog, we’ll take you through three major benefits of a connected environment. Read on to learn more.
Benefit 1: Entertainment
Home automation ties all of your electronic devices together, and that includes your entertainment equipment. What does that mean for you? You can experience the luxury of a high-end commercial space in the comfort of your home with one-touch controls in a home theater.
Imagine walking into your home theater and with a single button on your smartphone, tablet or remote control you transform the space into the ultimate entertainment zone. Simultaneously start the projector, set the volume, lower the lights and play your favorite movie without getting up from your comfortable, custom theater chair. If you need to get up and get a drink, raise the lights in only a specified zone, so the light doesn’t wash out the image.
Benefit 2: Security
Surveillance cameras in and around your property are nothing new, but what if you could control them remotely, and have them react to movement and light for more thorough protection of your home? Smart surveillance gives you complete control over the safety of your spaces.
A major buzzword in the television industry is “Ultra HD”. At four times the resolution of 1080p HD, the recording and display technology, also informally known as 4K, is revolutionizing home entertainment. Did you know you can have professional-quality, UHD recording components as part of your surveillance system?
The unparalleled resolution allows you to see every detail in the footage. You can even zoom into specific areas of the image. It’s most effective when integrated with your smart lighting system. Motion sensors can prompt the outdoor floodlights to turn on when movement is detected, and your intelligent surveillance cameras can turn to capture the well-lit action in stunning 4K. Plus, you can review the footage in real time remotely using your smartphone or tablet.
Benefit 3: Comfort
A real connected system can do more than only offer user-friendly, streamlined controls for your devices. It can learn your habits to help you stay comfortable and save energy.
A smart thermostat is capable of tracking the temperature, energy expenditure and necessary adjustments for making your rooms more comfortable and efficient. But it can also make those changes automatically in a way that satisfies you and keeps your home running smoothly.
After only a few days, your thermostat begins to understand your habits. If you raise the temperature every morning when you get out of bed, the thermostat will adjust automatically. If you turn it on when you get home from work, it will react accordingly. If your habits suddenly change, the new data will be recorded and change with you. With a connected home, you no longer have to put in the extra work to maintain your personal comfort.
