Smart home technology and the variety of tools available can be confusing to homeowners. Home technology lets homeowners control basic home systems through a unit in the home or through an app on a smart phone.
For some homeowners this may seem unnecessary. There are many benefits to using smart home technology. Here are some benefits of smart home technology:
Energy and Cost Savings
Smart home technology can turn off power to appliances and home systems when they are not in use (such as during the work or school day when a home is empty). This delivers power to appliances and other home systems only when necessary. It can reduce energy consumption in the home and help save on monthly energy bills. The savings may be noticed as soon as your first energy bill.
Have you left your house and wondered if you’ve adjusted the temperature? Smart thermostats can tell you what’s happening in your home at any time. Other smart home technology systems can tell you if lights are on, when doors have been opened, if security systems are engaged and more.
Home automation can make your home more comfortable. (Who doesn’t want that?) Smart home technology can allow you to adjust lighting in your home, change the heating or cooling system and more. You can be sure your home is at your desired comfort level as soon as you walk in the door, or adjust your home environment for any guests visiting your home.
