Home automation, also called smart technology, can help your Warner Robins, Georgia, home run more efficiently and keep your family comfortable. Smart homes are convenient and affordable. You can use a robot vacuum to clean your floors, water your lawn automatically with smart sprinklers, and receive maintenance reminders for your appliances on your phone. Home automation can help you save money through lower utility bills, better security and insurance discounts.
Lower Utility Bills
With home automation, you can lower your utility bills without extensive renovations. A smart thermostat lets you turn your HVAC system down automatically to save energy when you aren’t home or asleep. Then, you can set your smart thermostat to return your home to a comfortable temperature before coming back or waking up.
Many thermostats can adapt to your family’s routine on their own so that you don’t have to program them manually. You can also control them from anywhere with a smartphone or a computer.
An automated home security system can automatically lock your doors when you leave. If you have a break-in or your smoke detector senses a fire, the system will send an alert to your smartphone.
If you’ve burned toast, you can turn off the alarm. For a more severe problem, you can contact the police or fire department to prevent expensive damage.
A smart home can also warn you about problems with your HVAC system or other appliances before you need extensive repairs or experience severe damage. This reduces the chances that you’ll need to use your home insurance policy. Since insurance premiums are based on risks, you can save an average of 20 percent with home automation, or $1,100 per year.
