Use Smart Home Automation to Improve Quality of Life
It’s well known that technology can enhance your home in a number of ways: energy-savings, convenience, aesthetics, and more. But did you know that smart home automation can improve your health as well? In addition to serving your Hillsborough, CA home, your smart technology can also serve your personal wellbeing.
In this blog, we will take a look at the ways that smart home automation and its accompanying technology can benefit your health in ways that require minimal effort from you.
Lighting & Sleep
Ever tried to work a busy day after getting very little quality sleep? Or maybe you didn’t wake up on time, resulting in a frantic morning where you rush out the door without adequate time to properly prepare for the day. Our quality and length of sleep affect the following day and our overall health.
Smart home automation can improve your sleep and morning routine. Lighting and shading control provide the quality of life that you need to be productive and navigate throughout your day.
Once your motorized shades are programmed to close when the sun sets, schedule your lights to dim throughout the evening and then eventually shut off completely by the time you need to be in bed. Keep a few scattered lights on at a dim level near the bathroom or hallway so you can see if you get up in the middle of the night. Finally, schedule your shades to open in the morning to let in the natural light to wake you up.
Moreover, lighting can affect your mood during daily activity. Brighten the lights or open the windows for a mood-boost, or dim everything and close the shades in the event of a migraine or need to decrease stimulation.
When your technology works to improve your sleep and wake cycle, your health benefits from it.
Temperature Control & Comfort
The temperature in your home can affect so much and even have a domino effect. When you’re too warm or cold, you’ll be uncomfortable throughout the day — your home is the last place you should feel any discomfort. This can in turn affect your productivity, your mood, and the comfort of others in the house.
Schedule your temperature system to cool down the house when more heat from outside is coming in, and have the heat turn on at colder times. Or set it to be eco-friendly and not use energy when nobody is home, then adjust it to cool down before you get home.
If you’re having people over, program the system to cool down the house and keep it at a comfortable temperature even with the added body heat.
Manage all of this straight from your smartphone or other device.
The fact is that when your home is at your preferred temperature, you’ll be more comfortable at home and have one less thing to stress about. Smart home automation makes living comfortable.
Security & Peace of Mind
When you have a smart security system in place, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are safe in your home. Install surveillance cameras inside and outside that you can monitor from anywhere via your smartphone, set up an alarm system that will flash the lights outside and make a scene in the event of unexpected visitors or an invasion, and control all of its settings from one device.
Knowing that your home is safe and protected lets you feel secure whether you’re in or out of the house. Reducing your anxiety levels through added protection can positively impact your overall health.
