Update your home with automation technology
Have you imagined what it would be like to have a fully or partially automated home? We are talking about more than just turning off your lights and adjusting the thermostat (although that is possible also). Well now it is within your grasp! Smart home hubs and devices are becoming more affordable and more simplified each day. For many years, the automation technology just wasn’t friendly with each other, each Hub was programmed to only work with its own device. Now, with the help of Z-wave wireless technology, smart home hubs and wireless devices are more simple and affordable than ever! Let’s discuss the automation technology available for you!
Lighting Automation Technology:
The most simple implementation of home automation is automated lights. Automate your lighting by installing a z-wave light switch. This light switch will sync to your smart home hub, allowing you to see which lights are currently on within an app on your phone. With the push of a button on your phone you can turn your lights off from anywhere. Save on your electricity bill and never worry about whether or not you left the light on again!
Wi-Fi thermostats are the next evolution of heating and cooling control in your home. They build upon the basic temperature setting, scheduling and digital interface options of non-programmable and programmable thermostats with a variety of added features. Some of these features include improved energy efficiency and feedback, remote programming, geofencing, learning and alerts. Once these Smart Thermostats are synced up with a Wi-Fi router, you will have remote access from a computer or via an app, all from the comfort and convenience of a smartphone or tablet virtually anywhere you access to the web. The future of comfort control is now – no matter where you are, a Wi-Fi thermostat keeps you connected to your home with control in the palm of your hand.
Now on to automated locks. Our automated lock of choice is made by Schlage. Schlage has made it simple for their customers to sync their product to multiple home automation phone apps as well as to use in person. This technology even makes it possible to lock and unlock your door from anywhere or even to automatically lock/unlock when you have reached a certain distance from your home. Schlage has many available products that range from digital keypads to lone deadbolts. No matter your need or preference we are here to help you choose and install your automated lock!
Automation Control Panel:
Every automated system needs a control panel, our recommendation – the Lynx Touch 7000. In addition to the security capabilities of this panel, the Z-Wave connectivity module lets installers integrate security, lighting, thermostats, water valves and more – for local and remote control. With Honeywell Total Connect™ Remote Services, users can control security, thermostats, lighting, locks, receive alerts and more from most smartphones, tablets and computers.
