Home automation is a great way to make your life easier, more convenient, and more fun, but the benefits don’t stop there! There are all kinds of ways to keep your family and home safer and more secure with home automation.
The two biggest areas your smart home can help you with safety and security is with locks and lights.
Home Automation for Locks
The biggest benefit of the advanced security systems available today is that they give you remote access, meaning you can control your home security whether you are home or not. Whether you would rather use your smartphone, a tablet, a remote, or your desktop, the options are endless. Your home can notify you if a door is left unlocked so that you can make sure your property is always secure. You can even set it to make sure that the doors lock at a certain time, like if your child comes home from school before you are home from work and you would like to make sure the doors are locked behind them. Or maybe you have a service professional coming to clean your house or repair something inside and you want to make sure the house is locked behind them. With home automation, you can!
Home Automation for Lights
Setting a schedule for your lights with home automation if great for convenience, but it also keeps your home more secure. If you are out of town for business or vacation, having your lights come on in the evening can keep intruders away by creating the appearance that someone is home.
This is also a huge benefit for aging parents. One of the biggest risks to the elderly is falling. If you set your lights to be automated, whether that is scheduling them to come on as the sun goes down or setting up motion detectors so the lights automatically come on when someone walks in the room, those well-lit rooms can prevent falls.
