When you think about what it would be like to have a smart home, do you picture The Jetsons? Does a smart home seem like something that’s out of reach for you and your family? In reality, a smart home can be a way to provide convenience and help keep your family safe as well as provide many ways to make your life more efficient and functional. See what it could be like to be a smart home owner.
Waking Up Your House
When you wake up in the morning as a smart home owner, all it takes is opening one app to see the status of your security and smart home devices. Without even getting out of bed, you can look in on any locations with video security devices. With one touch, you can choose your “Wake Up” scene which triggers all the motions you need to happen in the morning from turning on lights to disarming your system and even changing the temperature of your thermostat.
Setting Reminders for the Morning Rush
You don’t need to worry what you might be forgetting because you’re in complete control of your smart home. As the kids are running out to catch the bus, they may leave the front door open… but you get an alert on your phone and can fix the problem right away. As you head to your vehicle on your way to work, you lock your door and arm your security system with the touch of one button. If you’ve forgotten to do this, you get a notification once you’ve left the 2-mile circle around your home because you’ve set up a geo fence.
Smart Climate Control 24/7
When temperatures are at their most extreme during the summer and winter months you can save money on your electric bill by integrating a Z-Wave Smart Thermostat into your system of Guardian smart home devices. One of the ways to benefit the most from this technology is to set up an automated temperature schedule. The go to example for setting a temperature schedule is to turn down the heat while you’re at work, or set a timer to cool down your house before returning home. You can also make schedules to adjust your temp based on when you are cooking or exercising if you follow a pretty consistent schedule during the week, and you can always manually change the thermostat when you need to from your phone as well.
Away From Home
Once you’re at work, no matter what you could be worried about at home, you don’t have to be. If there are high levels of heat or smoke that may signify a fire, you trust your monitored smoke or heat detector to signal Guardian’s monitoring center. If there is a burglary attempt, your door, window and motion sensors can provide immediate detection if you have your system turned On. If you have a pet at home, you can check-in to make sure it is OK. Everything becomes simpler and more intuitive.
In the afternoon, a package is delivered at your front door. The delivery person rings your video doorbell and you are able to see him drop off the package and instruct him to leave it in a specific place on your porch.
At the end of the day, you get a notification when your kids get home from school. You know that your home’s temperature has automatically adjusted from the low energy setting during the day to a setting more comfortable for the kids. You can drive home with peace of mind, knowing that everything is well at home.
One Touch Lighting at Dusk
You can use a light module to control lighting other than just for your lamp. You can control your lights with the touch of a button on your smart phone. Whether you’re celebrating the holidays or simply wanting to set the mood, your allows you to dim your lights, set timers and turn your lights on and off at home, at work or when you’re on the go. This feature is also great for things you frequently turn on and off or electric appliances that constantly needed to be plugged or unplugged requiring bending down and maybe even reaching around/ behind furniture
