If you think home automation is taking things a bit too far consider this: Have you ever left for a week's vacation only to wonder if you turned off the air conditioner when you're already 4000 ft above the earth? So have we. In fact, so have most people. We lead busy lives which leads to forgetfulness and sometimes that means forgetting to turn off the air or leaving the garage door open or the front door unlocked.
1. Spying On Your Teens: We thought that would get your attention! Though not in the typical sense of the word, home automation does allow you to make sure your teens aren't turning down the temperature when you're not home. It isn't just the television running nonstop during summer vacation that makes your energy bill jump. Those sleepy kids like it a bit cooler and even though you put your foot down and say it doesn't need to be 69 degrees all day, teenagers have learned the fine art of turning down the temp for a while and turning it back up before mom and dad get home from work. With home automation, all you do is log in from your phone or computer and check the temperature whenever you want.
2. Get Ready for bed Before You're Home: If you're like most people, you like to sleep with the temperature a bit cooler at night. Unfortunately, if you're out late, you end up going to bed in a warm house or getting to bed late because you're waiting for it to cool down. Home automation takes care of that for you. Just whip out your smart phone and lower the temperature. Then, by the time you get home you can go straight to bed in the cool house you love. Yes, a programmable thermostat can do the same thing. However, what about spontaneity? You decided to stay out later than usual but the air conditioner is already running and it really doesn't need to do that for another hour. Home automation will help you change the temperature when you want it to change and save you money in the long run!
3. Prepare for the Unexpected: Regardless of how organized and prepared you try to be, something always comes up. Things like Mom and Dad dropping in for a visit unexpectedly and are waiting at your house or the sun has been blazing and suddenly the weather changed and there's a randomly cool day - these things are part of life. Home automation allows you to be prepared for anything that comes up.
Home automation allows you to be in control - all the time. A few clicks on a smartphone, computer or tablet and your home temperature can be whatever you want it to be. The fun part is - home automation isn't as expensive as you would think. It doesn't require you to get a complete new HVAC system. While prices vary between models, your trusted HVAC contractor can help you pick the best model for your budget. In the long run, you will enjoy better comfort while saving money!
