I would really enjoy to upgrade our home with an automation system, more plus more of the appliances I purchase include Wi-Fi capability. I’m now able to control our oven, washing machine, dryer, soda maker and oven through our PC. I receive text notifications from our water heater, sump pump and dehumidifier, there are far too more than 2 apps plus rather than adding convenience, managing all of these different gadgets is getting confusing! With a home automation system, I’d have a central hub to ease the overall operation. I could include door locks, lighting, sound system, surveillance cameras, smoke detectors, window sensors plus temperature control. I’ve made the choice to start small and I have just invested into a smart temperature control. The current temperature control offers so more than 2 features that I said I wouldn’t be able to operate it! However, the touchscreen interface was wonderfully user-friendly plus guided myself and others through the set up. For the initial month after installation, the temperature control tracked every adjustment I made to temperature plus l gained our family’s schedule and preferences. It later created a customized program plus I rarely need to touch it. The temperature control also includes something called geofencing, which monitors the location of my smartphones. When any member of the family enters a particular radius of the house, the temperature control adjusts temperature to welcome us home to ideal temperature. When we leave for task plus school, the plan raises or lowers the temperature to save on energy. I like that I can easily access all sorts of information or make changes through our smartphone from virtually anywhere. The smart temperature control helps myself and others to take better care of the Heating and Air Conditioning unit and shave on some energy costs. Having the smart temperature control installed has convinced myself and others that a home automation plan would be super beneficial.
