Don’t Rely on Simple Devices — Take Your Home Automation to the Next Level
Getting the most out of smart technology is easy. In fact, that’s why they call it “smart.” Each device can connect to the internet to make your lifestyle simpler and more efficient. Everything from thermostats to lights, video doorbells, locks, surveillance cameras, and more, can be automated and controlled with one touch.
But, all those devices (with their separate apps and interfaces) can become cumbersome, defeating the purpose of automation. If you want to take your smart home to the next level, you can combine the control of each device under a single, comprehensive interface. In this blog, we’ll show you why you should work with a home automation design-build integrator to upgrade your Westchester County, NY or Fairfield County, CT property with smart home automation.
What Is Home Automation?
You may think you’re living in a smart home. After all, you could have smart devices installed throughout your home. With the tap of a button on your smartphone, you can check the temperature on the thermostat, see who’s at the front door, unlock the back door, and check your security system.
But if those devices and systems aren’t working together to create a complete ecosystem of compatible technology, you’re not enjoying true home automation.
For instance, your smart thermostat can integrate with your lights and motorized shades to work together. With one tap on your controller, you can lower the shades, raise the lights, and set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature that helps you save energy. You can also include controls of your AV, security, and more.
Plus, you can set timers and install sensors for a virtually hands-free home technology system. Your home works to make your lifestyle easier, while you sit back and enjoy the benefits.
Why Work with a Home Automation Design-Build Integrator?
It doesn’t take much to install some smart devices. Given that fact, you may think it’s easy to build a complete home automation system on your own. However, you may find that it’s more complicated than you are prepared to handle.
Not all devices are designed for compatibility, and others require independent controls to use. So, you may be able to use your smartphone to control the lights and shades, but can you do it using a single app?
When you work with a design-build installer, they craft a system that only uses one control interface for all your devices. They listen to you and design a system that fits the way you’ll use it. That way, your technology becomes easier, not more complicated.
Designing a comprehensive system goes beyond just installing the devices you want — it’s an in-depth process that requires the right placement of devices, structured wiring for power and network, scalability (so you can add more devices in the future), device prioritization, system programming, and more. And though the installation process may seem complex, once it’s installed, home automation is easy to use.
