In the past, going on vacation was a chore. We’d have to rely on a trusted neighbor to help keep our home secure. That neighbor would turn on our lights, check on our home to ensure it was safe, and maybe even water our lawn—all in the name of security. After all, we didn’t want to attract the attention of burglars while we were away.
Nowadays, it seems a bit harder to find someone you can trust, but that doesn’t mean you can’t leave your home for a few days. In fact, now there’s something better you can use to check on your home: home automation security systems. With just a couple clicks of your smartphone, you can automate just about everything, from lights to appliances to security systems. You never have to worry about your home again because you can check on it from work, the grocery store, and even when you’re across the country. See how AMP Smart automation can make your home smarter.
Types of Home Automation
You can manage your home with various types of automation, such as the following:
Hook up all your appliances, such as the refrigerator, oven, microwave, and even the coffee maker, to your phone so you can operate them from anywhere. Not only is it convenient, but it can also save money on electricity.
The ability to control access to gates and doors can help keep your home secure. Since you are the only one who is allowed access—through your smartphone—you can prevent access by burglars. You can track who comes in and out of the home and receive alerts when an unauthorized person tries to enter.
You can also use your smartphone to control the inside and outside lighting. Turn on lights at night. Dim the lights in your bedroom. Use timers to shut off lights at certain times. You can also control lighting from many miles away while you’re on vacation.
Need to water the lawn? You can do so with a few clicks on your phone. Use your phone to control various areas of your lawn and even look for leaks. This can help reduce water waste and save money.
