Connecting to your home through your wireless network: The future of smart home automation

The future is here; millions of homes are transitioning and even being built from the ground up as what we like to call “Smart Home Automation.” More and more people are hopping onto this epidemic that is known to provide significant savings on energy bills as well as give homeowners peace of mind knowing their home is secure with high definition surveillance systems and of course, incredible convenience.

Home automation can help with energy costs. With your smart home system, you can pre-program your ‘smart’ thermostats to adapt to your living habits. For example, what time of the day you’re home vs. when you’re at work, or when it drops below a certain temperature outside. This concept can be applied to virtually any automation in your home. Manufacturers say that on average, smart homes are saving consumers almost 15% on their heating and cooling bills.

Not only is your smart home saving you money, but it is giving you more control over your entire home with just the touch of your fingertip. Even before you walk through your home, you can unlock your doors, turn on your lights, music, televisions, microwave, and fireplace with just a few clicks on your phone. With our fast-paced society, convenience on your smart home is a huge selling point.

Considerations

Considering this is a huge savings on your energy bill and a convenience in your everyday life, it comes with a price. However, the more popular home automation becomes, the more affordable it is becoming within the last few years.

You will need to consider your home’s current wiring. For example, if you have an older home, likely your home’s wiring will not be compatible with the advance of technology out on the market today, and you’ll need to have your home retrofitted to ensure network compatibility. You’ll also want to make sure you have a trustworthy home automation company with great warranties, customer service, and reputation.
