“New year, new me” is a common mantra every January, but your home can benefit from a new year’s refresh as well. Rather than a new appliance or cosmetic upgrade, consider adding on home automation technology that can make your home smarter and your daily routines more streamlined. Here are some of the things you can gain by making your security system a smart home automation system.
Whole Home Control
Who would have thought the day would come when we could control our whole homes remotely with the touch of a button? That day is here, with home automation that lets you control everything from your lights, thermostat, appliances and even lawn sprinklers from the palm of your hand. Your smartphone becomes your remote control for all these devices, with an easy-to-use app that lets you turn these features on and off as needed. You can even program everything to operate on a schedule. And by integrating with Geo-Services, your system will know when you’re on your way home so that specific things can be turned on or off as needed before you arrive.
Intelligent Activity Response
Have you ever wished your home could anticipate your needs? When your security system is equipped with our intelligent insights engine, that’s exactly what can happen. This technology proactively looks out for your family by using AI to memorize your household activity patterns.
When your smart home knows the times that everyone comes and goes in a typical day, its security sensors can alert you when something unusual could be a security threat. From there, you can take action quickly as needed.
Voice Assistant Integration
Whether you have an Amazon Echo, Apple HomePod or Google Nest, you can integrate your system with your voice assistant device so that it responds to your voice commands. Imagine telling Alexa to turn on the lights, crank up the A/C, or activate your alarm. The functions your voice assistant can perform may have already seemed endless; by integrating it with your smart home security system, it can fill your home security and home automation needs as well.
These are some of the most exciting things home automation add-ons can give you in 2023. To learn how to turn your home security into a smart home security system with powerful automation, call VGI Technology this new year.
