Here’s What You Need to Know About Smart Home Automation
In past blogs, we have discussed trends, specific technology, and dedicated project ideas. We now want to give a more high-level overview of what smart home automation is capable of and why it’s such an important aspect to complementing the individual smart technology products in your Atherton, CA home.
In this blog, we will look at what exactly smart home automation can do for your home and the technology within it.
Automation puts you in the driver’s seat, allowing you to control your technology as you wish. Your smart home automation system will sync all of your smart devices to speak with each other when needed – but mostly to speak with the system that gives you ultimate control.
From one central source, you can manage all your devices: access the security cameras on your surveillance system, and adjust the lights, shades and audio without getting up or switching rooms. This control allows you to feel truly in command of your home and its smart technology.
What good is having a series of smart devices if you’re stuck with a pile of apps to get it all to work? You likely invested in them for simplification and a folder full of smart home apps should doesn’t sound simple to us.
Home automation gives you streamlined control just the way you want it.
Smart home automation is not just about control. It’s also about customizing your technology and its functions to meet your unique needs. This means setting up “scenes” to have preset customizations: lights that gradually dim or brighten, shades that close or open at scheduled times, and then scheduling these scenes – if you want – for certain times of day. Alternatively, simply have them available and select them whenever the occasion fits.
For example, schedule a scene to complement your morning routine by opening the shades and turning on your favorite music to wake up to. Then, schedule your goodnight scene to start dimming the lights and closing the shades without you having to keep looking at the time to know when to start getting ready to end the day.
On the other hand, set up a “Dinner party” scene you have ready for when you need it. With the single tap of a button, you can turn on the music, adjust the temperature, and dim the lights in one area while having a movie playing in another room.
