Managing Your Space Can Be a Breeze
A smart home can make your daily life easier than ever. It can lower your shades, play your favorite music in any room, and keep your property protected at all times – just to name a few of an automated system’s many features.
But with so many different components to use, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. How can you easily manage your smart home control system in your South living space in the South Bay?
The great news is that controlling your system just takes pressing a button on an easy-to-use smart device. From there you have one centralized and streamlined source at your disposal always!
But which device should you use? We dive into the numerous options below, so you can learn which ones you like best.
Keep on reading to find out which one’s meant for you and your family!
Remotes & Keypads
Maybe you want to keep the control of your system simple and efficient. This is where a remote or touch panel can come in most handy.
If you have guests over, a keypad or one single remote is distinguishable and easy to locate for everyone. That way, if they want to turn on the TV or dim the lights, they can do so too without waiting for you.
Touch panels are also a stylish option. They can blend in seamlessly with your existing interior and won’t stick out obtrusively on your walls.
But if you do wish to make them more visible so that your friends can find them easier, there are more elegant and noticeable ones available too.
Tablets & Phones
If you want control of your smart home to lie solely in you or your family’s hands – often, using your smartphone or tablet is the ideal choice.
You already carry your phone with you on a daily basis; so it makes sense that it’s a great option to operate your system’s features.
Even if you aren’t home, you can still control every component. Check that your doors are locked, view surveillance footage, turn off lights, or lower shades – all from the phone in your hand.
And if you want a larger screen, a tablet has an even better user interface. Both are superb ways of managing your system from devices you regularly use anyways.
Timers & Sensors
The best part of smart home automation is that it can work for you without you ever having to push a button.
With timers, you can schedule your lights and shades to work at certain hours throughout the day. You can also install sensors to detect if the sun is shining directly through your windows, and will then alert your shades to lower.
The same goes for your TV. If you know a show comes on at a certain time, you can use timers to have your system turn on your screen. Set up your favorite dance song to play as your alarm clock goes off in the morning, or for all the lights in your home to turn on or off at once.
Motion sensors can notice when a room becomes empty, and will then turn off the lights in it – keeping you from having to remember to do so and saving you energy in the process.
Smart home control can be easier to manage than you might think! Want to learn more about these smart devices and which is the right choice for you?
