How often have you arrived at work and wondered whether you’d remembered to lock the back door at home? If you automate your home security, you can put these worries behind you and check your locks from anywhere on your smartphone.
What if all the devices in your life could connect to the Internet? Not just computers and smartphones, but everything: clocks, speakers, lights, door bells, cameras, windows, window blinds, hot water heaters, appliances, cooking utensils, you name it. And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It's no longer science fiction; it is possible - and what's more, is it is already happening, being installed and being used in more and more homes.
A lot of people are getting SONOS installed into their houses, with better sound quality and ease of use, but this is just the start of home automation! SAFE are qualified and recognised SONOS approved installers, so you know your getting the best installation and set up for your system.
You've heard the hype, you may have even seen some home automation in use - so let's take a look at how home automation could benefit you:
With home automated security you can watch CCTV footage from your smartphone while you are at work. Remotely lock windows, doors and garages. Programme your lights to flash on and off, and receive email, phone calls or text messages from your alarm system when somebody suspicious approaches your house. Home insurance costs are substantially lower for those with an automated home, and with good reason - an automated home is a secure home.
Remotely controlled heating and cooling systems keep your energy bill low and your family in comfort. A smart home is a convenient home, and it knows to turn the heating off when you go to work or when you go to bed, meaning financial savings for you, and energy savings for the planet. Close windows remotely to prevent warm air from escaping. Control the level of brightness to suit your mood. A light bulb lasts 20 times longer when dimmed to 50%, meaning that you can save energy and money while you are away by automating your lighting system.
Enjoy the quality of a cinema experience from the comfort of your own home with a high-end surround sound system. Enjoy high-fidelity music in all the rooms of your home, with a multi-room hi-fi system that suits your exact tastes. Of course, your entertainment system is managed by your device of choice, a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
