Home Automation: The Perks & Benefits of Going Auto
While some amenities of the Tony Stark’s cinematic home are still out of reach for the average home owner—like Jarvis , the holographic monitors on which we can toss graphics from one section to another, and an Iron Man suit that Jarvis helps us don—some things, like some serious home automation, is well within reach. Smart Home Automation brings your living space into the 21st century and creates an integrated network of rooms and systems that allow you to control nearly every aspect of your environment.
The perks & benefits range from the money saving & environmental benefits to the just plain fun & über convenient perks that’ll make you feel like Tony Stark… and impress your guests. Here are just SOME of our favorite perks & benefits:
- Save some green on electricity with smart home automation. The monitoring & ability to control a variety of systems remotely helps you & your home know when to shut off unused features or switch something into an energy saving mode. Components that integrate well with smart home automation also tend to be less of an electrical drain than their predecessors.
- Integrating your whole home means automated control from the garage to the back bedroom and all the way out to the patio. Think about how nice it would be to turn the lights on that illuminate the path from your garage to your bedroom… from the garage… when you’re coming in after a late night. Never trip over a misplaced chair or step on the kid’s LEGOs again! At least… not due to a lack of light.
- Cut down on visual & spatial clutter with a centralized equipment rack for stuff like a media center, receivers, amps, etc. and in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, wall mounted plasma TVs, and more. Avoid the knot of cabling at the back of your entertainment center, and those unsightly speaker cables.
- Independently control the temperature & lighting in every room… from any room. Let’s say you’re one of those people that needs a room warm & toasty to fall asleep, but wake up overheated at 3am every night. Use your climate control options to warm the room up around bedtime, and cool down as the night progresses (and warm up again when it’s time to leave your blanket cocoon).
With an integrated communication system, you’ll never have to shout up the stairs that it’s dinnertime, or hunt down a wandering family member. You can talk to rooms individually, or corporately.
There is a seemingly never-ending list of perks & benefits to smart home automation—it frees up time, money & energy to do other, more important things. Spend less time managing your home, and more time living in it!
