The days of home automation are here, having already surpassed the world of The Jetsons with more conveniences and technologies than anyone could have dreamed of even a decade ago. You’ve worked hard to get to where you are today, including establishing a home to call your own. When it comes to making your life as streamlined as possible, shouldn’t you call the shots?
You can automate just about anything in your home, from lights to locks to fireplaces. With just the touch of a button, these are just a few items you can control even if you’re miles away:
What if you prefer tea in the morning? You can automate your electric kettle. And go right ahead and add that microwave, too. Basically, with controllers and smart wall outlets, you can turn anything that plugs into the wall for power into a smart device.
When you’re away from home, your mobile phone is a great option for controlling devices remotely. You may want to change your thermostat settings, for example, when you’re heading home from a trip so you can enter a refreshingly cool (or toasty warm) house. Security cameras and flood sensors are other examples of systems you can control when you’re away from home and want to protect your property.
While inside the home, you can use a variety of devices to control all your automated goodies. You can stick with your mobile phone, but if you don’t like to always be “on call” at home, you can stash it and choose voice commands via Alexa, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, or Apple HomeKit. You can even choose how your remote “talks” to your items, whether that be through Wifi, Z-Wave, Bluetooth, and more.
