What is Home Automation?
While the concept of home automation has been around for many years, it is still something that most people don’t fully understand. A great way to try to help with the understanding is with your home’s thermostat. Many years ago your thermostat was manually adjusted, typically by turning a dial on the thermostat to increase or decrease the temperature in your home. Then along came digital thermostats that allowed you to program your thermostat so that you could have your heat turn off at a certain time, etc. Finally, those digital thermostats are now connected to the internet, and this is how home automation can really be implemented and become an impressive piece to your home.
With your thermostat connected to the internet, you could turn on your air conditioning remotely, such as before you leave work so that your home would be cool and comfortable when you get home. But you can program this, and home automation then takes this a step forward where certain lights would be triggered by your A/C turning on, and your security system could also unlock the house several minutes later so you don’t need your keys to open your door. Home automation makes life more convenient and can even save you money on heating, cooling, and electricity bills. Home automation can also lead to greater safety with Internet of Things devices like security cameras and systems.
Okay, But How Does Home Automation Work?
Home automation has three levels to the concept. First is monitoring, which means that you can remotely see the live video feed from your security cameras, doorbells, etc. The second is control, such as controlling your security cameras by panning them to see more of the area being covered. The third is automation where things like a siren would go off when an armed security camera detects motion. Each home in Atlanta, Brookhaven, Fayetteville, Marietta, Newnan, Peachtree City, and the surrounding areas will have their own unique setup for home automation depending on what the homeowners desire.
