Lots of people say automated smart homes are too expensive to implement. I have news for those people: you’re not really imagining the possibilities. Sure, you could buy a smart lock for your front door and a smart thermostat for your heating and cooling systems, but that’s only scratching the surface of what’s possible. With a truly integrated system, all aspects of your home can be managed with just a few words or finger taps on a smartphone.
Access with voice commands
Say you’re coming home from work late at night, and all you want is to get into your apartment without having to fumble for keys. Just say, “Ok, Google,” “Siri or Amazon Echo”, then, “Open the door.” Your smart lock will unlock, and you can come right in. Or maybe it’s just not a good idea to hold up traffic while unlocking your front door with your phone!
Imagine this scenario: You’ve arrived at the airport but forgot one more thing before leaving on vacation. There’s no need to run back home; instead, just tell Google that you’d like an extra set of keys made available via voice command whenever needed—and then an automated smart home will make it happen!
Increased home security and safety
The best part is that you can use voice commands to control your home security system.
For example, if you have a smart door lock, you can tell it to alert you when the door opens.
Or when someone enters the house while you’re away from home and it will send an alert to your phone with a photo of them!
You can also set up zones in your house where there are speakers or cameras so that it will automatically sound an alarm if there is any movement in those areas.
This is especially useful for families with small children who worry about their kids coming home late (or not at all!). And since many dogs bark when they hear strange noises around the house, why not set up alerts for barking?
Improved convenience and comfort
Imagine this: You’re at home, and it’s time to get ready for work. You’re late and need to leave in five minutes. You say “Ok, Google” or “Amazon Echo” and say, “turn on the lights in my kitchen”. Then you realize that you forgot something in the car, so you dash out with a quick “turn on the lights.” The lights turn on, so now all you have to do is lock up the house and be off on your way!
If you’re a parent who needs help getting kids ready for school and activities, then just ask Google Home when they’ll be back! Your child will hear their favourite song play (or even learn how many minutes until school starts) while also getting reminders about upcoming events or tasks like doing homework, feeding pets or taking out the trash.”
Savings on energy bills
You’ll save money by combining smart home devices. For example, smart thermostats can be programmed to turn on and off at certain times. Smart plugs can also be programmed to turn off when not in use if you’re going away for the weekend or on vacation. Finally, smart lights can be programmed to turn on and off at certain times of day or night so that they aren’t wasting energy when nobody is around.
You can automate many tasks with a smart home
Smart home automation can make your life easier, help you save time and money, and give you peace of mind. You can set up automated routines to control things like lights, heating and cooling, entertainment systems, security cameras—even your kitchen appliances! A smart assistant like Google Home or Alexa can even answer basic questions for you by connecting with third-party apps and services.
Getting invested in an automated smart home is a great example of how technology can be used to make our lives better. We live in an interesting time when new technology is being introduced all the time, but with so many options available, it can be hard for people to find what’s right for them. This post shows us that there are ways to use these new devices without being overwhelmed by all of their features or having to learn complex commands. The best thing about smart powered home is its ease-of-use as long as you stick around long enough until finally feeling comfortable using all its features.”
