Life can be a lot more hectic when you’ve got kids. Adults who live alone are used to finding things right where they set them—such as the thermostat settings for the AC and heating systems. But this can change when you’ve got kids, who tend to mess with thermostats, light switches, locks, and more (even when they know they shouldn’t).
Home automation helps to make things a bit less hectic. If your kids make things, let’s say, exciting—call a local technician to get home automation for convenience, safety, and peace of mind.
Perfect for Back to School
In the rush of getting your children to eat breakfast, pack their bags, and get out the door on time, you might forget a few things. Turning off lights, setting the comfort system properly, locking the doors, and closing the garage are all tasks that could get forgotten in a busy morning.
A home automation system allows you to control certain parts of your home from an app on your smartphone or tablet. So, as long as you’ve got internet access, you can check on the parts of your home that matter most.
- The Lights – Kids may forget to turn off lights before they leave the home. Turn them off from your phone to save on your energy bills.
- Your Home Comfort System – This is one of the biggest energy wasters in a home, and you want to make sure it’s kept at an efficient temperature throughout the day for maximum energy savings. You can make sure the temperature is not too high or too low when kids are home, or if an older child will be home from school a little before you plan to return from work, you can set the temperature so that it’s comfortable upon arrival.
- Locks – With automated locks, you can set different lock codes for each family member, the babysitter, or a house sitter, so that you can see who is home when and make sure your home is safe.
- The Garage Door – Accidentally leave the garage door open because you were running a bit late? Use an app on your phone to shut it!
