Home automation has grown increasingly popular over the course of the last few years. Most people are already aware that they can automate their thermostat and HVAC system in Merritt Island, Florida, but they may not be aware that home automation goes well beyond heating and cooling. There are plenty of other options in your home that you can automate to increase comfort, convenience, safety, and control.
Automated door locks give you the ability to unlock and lock your doors from your phone or other mobile devices. Not only does this technology take the guesswork out of locking your doors at night, but it also gives you the opportunity to make sure you locked your doors before heading out of town. Your phone or other authorized device operates the locks through a crypto-key.
A recent survey by Consumer Reports showed that 77% of homebuyers want a smart thermostat in their home. Nearly the same amount of people expect a smart smoke alarm system. These smart smoke detectors send updates about your batteries and sensors directly to your phone in addition to notifying you when the smoke alarm has been set off.
Automated home security systems allow you to have as much control over your home’s security as you would like, including being able to see who is ringing your doorbell.
