From Morning to Noon to Evening, Smart Home Automation Enhances Your Lifestyle
By now, you’ve certainly heard of smart home technology. In fact, you probably have some smart devices in your home – a few smart light bulbs, a video doorbell, or motorized shades in a room. Still, there’s so much more to enjoy! Smart home automation, when fully realized, gives you complete one-touch access and control of every connected technology in your home. It transforms your day-to-day life like never before.
Instead of assuming what living in a smart home looks like, why not discover what each day holds when you have a home automation system in your Bay Area home? In this blog, we’ll go through a typical day in a smart home. Keep reading for all the details.
Morning Wake-Up Call
Nobody enjoys waking up to a blaring alarm clock. There’s a much better way to help you ease into the morning. A smart home system is completely programmable to act as your gentle wake-up call. When the time comes for you to rise, your smart lighting slowly illuminates to a warm hue while motorized shades and blinds adjust to let the morning sun in. It doesn’t need to happen all at once, either. You can program the system to slowly brighten, ensuring a pleasant experience as you stir from sleep.
Smart Choices All Day Long
As you go about your day, use your smart home tablet, smartphone app, or even your voice to turn on various connected systems in your home. While preparing breakfast or lunch, turn up the whole-home sound system with your favorite playlist or podcast. It’s easy! Just tap an icon to get started or tell your voice assistant to play the song you want.
All throughout the day, your circadian lights automatically adjust to synchronize with your body’s natural rhythm. This ensures a well-lit home and one that keeps you energetic all day long. Of course, you can always take control of any lighting system in your home via your tablet or mobile device.
While you’re working or taking care of things around the house, your smart home also works behind the scenes to ensure a comfortable and safe environment. The AC and heating system operates in tandem with your motorized shades to maintain the perfect temperature in your rooms. In addition, if someone is at the front door, your system alerts you, so that you can speak with the visitor on your mobile device.
Entertainment in the Evening
Are you planning a get-together with close friends? Take the entertainment outside on your porch, pool deck, or backyard. By touching a few icons on your mobile device, you set the scene for a fun evening. In fact, you can literally program a scene in your smart home touchpad, such as “Outdoor Party.” When it’s time for the fun to begin, simply tap that button, and all the outdoor technologies adjust to your preset settings: the landscape lighting, the outdoor TV and sound system, and the hot tub pump and lighting.
Perhaps you want to spend time watching a movie or TV program in your home theater. Just like your outdoor entertainment system, it’s easy to program a scene for movie night. Tap one icon to turn on your big-screen 4K TV and surround-sound system, as your theater lighting dims to create the perfect atmosphere for the show.
So Much More Awaits!
We haven’t even discussed the remote capabilities of a smart home system – how you can control everything while you’re on vacation. And then, there are many other smart home technologies you can enjoy, such as smart appliances, hidden audio-video technology, and video surveillance.
