In a time when we are all becoming more environmentally aware, home automation provides a good solution to help preserve our natural resources. Home automation products can reduce power consumption and automatically turn off lights and appliances when they aren’t in use.
Also, though home security is a priority for everyone, high installation cost or monthly monitoring charges make security systems cost prohibitive for many homeowners. Home automation provides an inexpensive solution to home security.
Thus, we can say Home Security and Automation is simplifying our day to day life.
Earlier, I had to spend long hours at work and leave my home and children unattended. Then I hired a full-time house help who also served as a babysitter.
But it’s not always what it seems and so keeping a watch on the house help is equally important. It was then I started searching online for a solution that would give me better control over my home and an option to monitor my children. In a few weeks, I came across the amazing world of home automation.
I discovered how I can use smart IoT technology to connect my home to my mobile device and control each aspect, precisely. Without giving a second thought, I invested in a home automation system. The three things I focused on were- installing a security/panic alarm at my home, setting up monitoring cameras at my home and transforming my electrical switches to smart switches.
Once I configured the home automation system, I felt more confident in leaving my house. I could keep an eye on everything from anywhere, set alerts for suspicious activity and lock down my home to make sure no one enters without permission.
Also, one thing I really hated was how my house help often forgot to switch off appliances or switch lights on during the evenings. Now with a home automation system, I could do all this at my fingertips. The security cams I installed and connected to the system served as my eyes even when I was not around. All in all, the investment gave me a lot of peace.
My life became easier as I could be connected to my home and my children, even when I was on business trips. I am now hooked to my home automation app without diluting my attention towards work commitments.
This made me realize a thing- if we can’t stay at home, we can use technology to bring our loved ones closer. And nothing’s better than a home automation system as it keeps us connected 24×7.
I would recommend a home automation system to anyone who is in constant fear about what’s in store for him/her back home after a tiring day at work.
So, if you’re also in a moral or professional dilemma because of your domestic responsibilities, starting with a simple home automation system can work wonders in your case, like it did in mine. I hope my experience will give you some idea about how to get a grip of your life with the help of smart technologies that we experience every day.6
