Home automation system includes smart thermostat

A couple of years ago, I invested in a home automation system.

The purpose is to combine our smart appliances into a single hub that is accessible through my smartphone.

The automation system simplifies the daily operation of my home. It helps me to take better care of appliances and systems and save both time and money. I’ve programmed the system to turn lights on and off at specific times in the evening. The garage door automatically opens as I pull into the driveway. My coffee maker starts up at the perfect time to provide a hot carafe of coffee when I get up in the morning. I receive alerts if there is a power outage, temperature fluctuation or any worrisome moisture. I know if the sump pump quits workings, if there’s smoke or elevated carbon monoxide issues. As part of the home automation system, we updated our heating and cooling equipment to include zone control and smart thermostats. The thermostat automatically adjusts temperature to conserve energy when the house is empty or my family is asleep. It knows the ideal time to raise or lower the setting to welcome us back to perfect comfort. The smart thermostat tracks energy use, provides energy saving tips and sends text notifications when it’s time to schedule maintenance. With a separate thermostat in each room, we’re able to customize the comfort to personal preference and occupancy. Having the automation system and smart thermostat has significantly elevated energy efficiency. Because the system is wireless, the installation was non-invasive and it’s future proof. We can easily make upgrades as improvements develop.
