Some people may call it Smart Home technology, we call it Home Automation. It’s a way to make your life more convenient and more safe. Classic Stereo Electronics Professional John Higgs talks about it in our latest Electronics 101.
WHAT IS HOME AUTOMATION?
Home Automation allows you to control almost anything in your home with the touch of a button. Use remotes, buttons on a wall, your phone, your tablet or even your voice to control your environment. Your environment can include:
- heating and cooling
- locks on your doors
- and almost anything else you can imagine
WHY IT’S HELPFUL
It’s convenient. Our internationally-acclaimed electronics installers can set it up to fit your needs. You can control the lights in each room with the touch of a button. You can also turn off the lights through your entire house with one touch.
It’s safe. If you forgot to lock the door after you left, then simply lock it with your phone. You can even automate lights and cameras to work when it detects movement outside the home.
It’s energy efficient. Certain Home Automation technology can adjust the shades based on the amount of sunlight in the room. Lights can also adjust automatically based on the brightness in the room. Think about how the energy you can save by having a schedule for your thermostat and so many other aspects of your home.
DO YOU INSTALL IT DURING CONSTRUCTION? CAN YOU INSTALL IT AFTERWARDS?
The answer is yes! Installing Home Automation during construction of the home opens up a few more options. However, we can automate a home that has already been built.
