Home Automation: 5 Tips for the Holidays

December 15, 2020

The holidays are a special time we all enjoy, but let’s face it: all that specialness can take a lot of extra time and work! This season, even just a few small conveniences can really add up to help you focus on what matters most—the traditions and people that you love. Here’s how home automation can make a difference.

Temperature Control

Home automated temperature control is about so much more than a setting on a thermostat. When you are out and about running your holiday errands, you can set the temperature at home remotely, using your device to get that perfect level of comfort ready for you and your guests no matter where you are or what the weather is like outside. 


Nightfall really has a way of sneaking up on us this time of year, seemingly going from a sunny afternoon to total darkness within minutes. With home automation, you don’t have to arrive to a dark, uninviting home, or waste electricity by keeping the lights on all day, either. Turn on your lights remotely as you’re heading home, and open the door to brightness—including a lit Christmas tree! 

Special Deliveries

Even before the pandemic, online shopping was becoming an integral part of holiday gift giving. This year, package delivery has increased to an all-time high. Unfortunately, so has doorstep theft. With high-resolution, automated cameras that record activity by your door, you can track your deliveries, see them arrive, and keep an eye on them when you’re away from home.

Grinch Prevention

Sure, the residents of Whoville were able to enjoy their Christmas without gifts, but why take the risk? With a home automated security and alarm system, you can protect your whole home and holiday items from wherever your seasonal activities take you. 

Appliance Control

Holiday cooking is an important part of celebrating the season, but timing the preparation of your favorite dishes among errands, visits, and even that well-earned nap, can be tricky. When you automate your electrical outlets, you can set up appliances to start and stop whenever, and wherever, you are. Multitasking has never been easier!
