You are missing out on having a more efficient and comfortable life if the only form of remote control in your home is associated with your TV. Instead of wasting time performing processes manually that can be easily controlled remotely, consider adding automated systems to these four areas of your home today:
If you ever rushed home in a frantic state to turn off a stove, you know that you came extremely close to having a life-threatening home emergency and even possibly a distraction-related car or other accident. Let go of the stress by investing in a remote digital outlet timer that allows you to shut off an electrical outlet using a remote control or phone app. Several manufacturers also offer smart stoves and kitchen appliances that you can turn off remotely.
Whether you live in a drought area or not, clean water is a precious resource that you can’t afford to waste when watering grass and gardens. Instead of setting up a sprinkler that you must manually control, install a remote control system that allows you to create an automated watering schedule that you can adjust remotely as weather conditions change.
Many home security systems now offer homeowners and renters the ability to receive remote notifications about security events like break-ins, fires, flooding and elder falls on their phones. You can access your security cameras remotely to see an event in real-time and then contact emergency first responders for assistance. Depending on the product, you can even shut off certain parts of your security system remotely as needed. For example, you might need to turn off a false alarm or a malfunctioning sprinkler.
Garage doors are not light as a feather, and they prove difficult to open and close when it is too wet or cold outside. Additionally, many people let their guard down when struggling to open and close their garage doors, which opens them up to attack from other people and animals. Save yourself the hassle and reduce the risk by installing a remote controlled garage door. Sit in the comfort of your car and control your garage with the press of a single button.
These are only a few automated systems that can make your life a lot easier. You can also find remote controlled thermostats, lights and even pet feeding systems. Save time and money every day with home automation.
