Monitor and control your home’s devices with enhanced smartphone accessibility
We don’t know about your home, but in our home, most things are automated; our lights turn on whenever we’re nearby, our coffee starts making itself in the morning, and our security system disarms whenever we’re almost home. Not only are these features convenient, but they also save us energy and thus, money on utility bills. But since home automation is a relatively new technology, some people may find it overwhelming.
Here, we’re breaking down exactly what home automation is and how you can add some to your life. Believe us, the process is much less complicated than it may seem.
A home automation system typically connects controlled devices to a central smart home hub, the user interface for control of the system uses either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application, or a Web interface that may also be accessible off-site through the Internet. Home automation has high potential for sharing data between family members or trusted individuals for personal security and could lead to energy saving measures with a positive environmental impact in the home.
A home automation system is a device that monitors and/or control home attributes such as lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems. When connected with the Internet.
Home automation works via a network of devices that are connected to the Internet through different communication protocols, i.e Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and others. Through electronic interfaces, the devices can be managed remotely through controllers, either a voice assistant like Alexa or Google Assistant or an app.
Many of these IoT devices have sensors that monitor changes in motion, temperature and light so the user can gain information about the device’s surroundings.
A smart door lock is a lock that has more sophisticated locking system than the traditional key and tumbler lock. Keypad, fob enabled, wireless, and biometric are just a few of the types of smart door locks available. Smart door locks can connect to a network and be controlled remotely from a smartphone or computer interface.
Your thermostat is the “brains” of your Texas heating and cooling operation. It allows you to set a comfortable temperature for your home. Once the temperature in your home drops below (or rises above) this set point, it notifies your heating (or cooling) system, which then turns on; running until this set point is once again reached, ensuring your total home comfort.
