Houston Smart Home Automation
Are you building a new home? Today that could mean making one more important decision. How smart do you want your home? Older homes are also capable of being made “smart”, but it’s more cost-effective to start from scratch. A Smart Home needs two categories to qualify as being smart. First, it needs devices that are programmed with sensors that are waiting for our instructions. Second, it needs to have a protocol that allows the devices to communicate with one another. What exactly can we equip our smart home with that we feel that we need? What are the items that we don’t really need, but it sure would be convenient to have?
Your Home Security Prioritized
Leading the way in the category for home necessities is usually the home security system. A smart home can follow your directions when it comes to arming or disarming your security system. You can use your smartphone to unlock the front door with your keyless entry when someone needs inside, and you’re not home yet. Putting your smartphone to use again, you can check the front video doorbell when it alerts you and have a two-way conversation with the person on your front step. You will get alerts when the home security cameras detect activity around your property when no one should be there. One more thing, having a smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your house will let you rest easy at night.
Houston Home Alarm Systems, Plus More
Why not take advantage of these smart accessories and make our life easier? Using a hub in your home will centralize the control of your smart devices in one spot other than your smartphone. Start your day off with a smart blinds device that can be scheduled to raise the blinds to let everyone know it is time to get up. The coffee pot is already brewing, thanks to a smart outlet, and the Roomba vacuum is starting its chores. The thermostat has the rooms at a perfect temperature for comfort. Your smart refrigerator will have the grocery list ready, the dishwasher will start when breakfast is complete, and the oven will be preheating when you get home. All this, and more, can be programmed and controlled through your smartphone, hub, or computer. As you walk out the door for work and school, the lights will know to turn off, and the thermostat will adjust to conserve energy while you’re away.
The Future in Your Home
When it’s not necessary, but we enjoy it, then why not? With a Smart Home, the options are truly endless. As you come home from work, the lights detect your home and turn on, and the garage door knows it’s time to open. You see that the irrigation had the sprinklers going today as scheduled. The ceiling fan comes on to cool the house as the thermostat adjusts itself. The oven is preheated and ready to cook for you. Your favorite music starts playing at its scheduled time, or maybe you have the television turn on for the latest news as you prepare dinner. The blinds automatically close as your day comes to an end. Call us as Allied Home Security and see what we can do for you to set up your own smart home. Don’t just live in your home, enjoy it!
