Home automation isn’t just about playing your favorite music selections from speakers in every room of your home. Whether your kids are 5 or pushing past 15, this technology can provide your family with home automation benefits you may not have considered. Here are just a few ways families with kids benefit:
- Save energy. Face it, kids can be notorious for leaving on lights and ceiling fans long after they’ve exited rooms. Home automation can keep costs down by turning off lights automatically or at specific intervals, giving you one less thing to worry about.
- Maintain scholarly focus. Our systems can monitor and control the electronic environment so you don’t have to. A quality system will allow you to set automatic controls for task lighting, television and gaming consoles, and music systems. You can rest assured knowing the setting is always right to allow your son or daughter to focus on homework during study hours.
- Keep the door locked. Home automation systems can include outdoor cameras and communication systems allowing your children to see who’s at the door via a mobile device and communicate with the visitor without ever opening the door. This same system can allow you to monitor who is coming and going from the house while you’re away so you always know what’s going on at home.
- Help your kids wake up or go to sleep easier. It’s simple to use your mobile device to program lights to gently brighten, blinds to open, and thermostats to adjust the temperature for a perfect “waking up” environment. In the evening, the system can be programmed to close everything down for a calm, tranquil transition to sleep.
- Improve your wi-fi network. When professionals install your home automation system, they can also create an improved wi-fi network to meet all the current technology demands your family has. Kids are using technology almost daily to attend video conferencing classes or watch videos for homework. A new system will ensure every member of your household has the bandwidth they need.
