Save Electricity Throughout the Home
You can save on electricity throughout your home by turning off the lights when you forget. We’re sure it’s happened to you before. You are stuck at work thinking, “Did I forget to turn off the lights?” Now you can know for sure just by opening an app on your home and selecting the system you want to track. Then, make adjustments as needed.
Make Smarter Choices about Your Home Comfort System
The biggest energy consumer in your home is likely your whole-house comfort system. You can check the app to see if the home is too warm or too cool before you arrive, so that you are comfortable when you get there. But just as important is using it to control energy use.
If you’re going to be late coming home from work, delay your prescheduled settings so as not to waste energy. If it’s a particularly hot day, you may want to raise the temperature slightly so as not to overwork the AC system.
Don’t Replace Your Locks
One of the features of home automation that surprises many is its security control features. You can set up your home to have video cameras that you can view within the app. Or you can easily see who unlocks the door with automated locks and keypads.
And you don’t have to worry about replacing the locks because you’ve lost a key. Use the keypad, and change or delete codes when you decide you need to up your security.
