We’ve all been in this situation before: you leave the home and are halfway to the office, your kid’s school, or the grocery store before you remember you forgot to switch off (or turn on) an important electrical device. This may be an air conditioning or heating system, a security system, or just the lights, but in any case, there is little you can do to control the situation. You can call a friend or neighbor, but this isn’t always a reliable system, and seems a bit extreme if you’re just worried about saving a little bit of money on your energy bills.
But in today’s world, new advancements in technology allow you the ability to control your home even from very far away. At Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, we’re proud to announce that we install, repair, and maintain home automation systems so that you can keep track of your electrical appliances and your home security no matter where you are.
What’s Included in Home Automation?
A home automation system works through an app installed on your smart phone or tablet, or by logging into your home automation system account on any computer with internet access. With this system, you can control a wide range of features of your electrical system. Turn off a light as soon as you realize you’ve forgotten. Shut off your heating and air conditioning system, as these are some of the biggest energy hogs in your home. Or, turn on the thermostat, delay the automatic settings, or raise and lower the temperature so that you’re greeted by a temperate, comfortable home as soon as you arrive.
Home automation can also help you to monitor your home security. Did you leave the garage door open when you left? Find out via the app, shut it immediately, and make sure your home security system is activated while you’re at it. If you have a technician install a compatible door lock, you can even lock or unlock the doors.
To get all of these features, you’ll have to install fixtures that are compatible with your home automation system, and only a trained technician has the skillset to do so.
