With a home automation system, you’ll never have to rush home from work to
turn off the lights, connect the water, or turn off the heat. You’ll never have to
wonder if you left devices turned on, and you won’t have to fret about intruders
while you’re away on vacation. With a home automation system, you’ll have your
finger on your home’s pulse, wherever you are. Whether you’re across the world
or just across town, smart home technology makes it easy – even intuitive – to
keep an eye on the comings and goings of your home.
Imagine, for example, that you’ve implemented smart sensors, cameras, lights,
and door locks to work in tandem, delivering pertinent information to your smart
device. You’ll be the first to know if an intruder attempts to break in – and you’ll
have documentation of the breach. But you’ll also be informed about the activities
of elderly relatives, for example, or children and pets.
Home automation systems can also mitigate costly damage to the home, from
flood and water damage to storms, cold snaps, and heat spells. Smart homes are
built to adjust automatically to changes in temperature and climate, and are
programmed to alert you to any problems – before they become catastrophes. In
a smart home system, a water pump and valve, for example, will mitigate
expensive water damage and can even prevent slower-reaching threats, like
mold, which grows as a response to slow leaks.
