One of the advantages of buying an ADT home security system in Beaumont is that you can sync it with home automation. Smart thermostats will make your living space the perfect temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your entrances. And you won’t leave the garage door open again with your automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these gadgets are by themselves, they can have an even greater effect when used in tandem with your security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Beaumont that will make your house much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Put Your Home To Bed
Your nighttime ritual has become routine: turn off all the lights, lock the door, set the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to find that you forgot to lock the front door or left the living room light on? And after you forget to do one thing on your evening checklist, it's easy to forget it the next night, as well. Then after a while, your forgotten checklist becomes commonplace in its own right.
But you can guarantee that your living space is ready for bed every evening when you automate your nighttime program. Through your Beaumont home security system, you can create a template that sets all your devices without you leaving bed. With a touch of a button, you can secure the doors, turn off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and activate your security devices. Or don't fret about forgetting to hit a button. Program your automation to turn on at a specific time -- such as 10pm.
Home Automation Idea #2: Go On Guard When You Go For Work
Along with a evening procedure, you can designate your automation systems to activate when your home is empty. With your ADT Control mobile app, you can set your living space on alert through an easy button touch. Now you can ensure that every door is locked, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even shut the garage door through the app if you accidentally left it wide open.
You don't need to keep your home locked up the whole day. Open the doors for returning friends or service folk with the mobile app. Or put your house on guard without even looking at your phone. By placing a geofence around your home, your devices powers on every time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #3: Set Moods For Watching TV And The Rest Of Your Life
Departing the house and putting your house to bed may be just one option on your home automation system. You can also form scenes for all kinds of moods. Adjust the lights just a touch while closing your motorized shutters for the premiere movie viewing atmosphere. Create a dimly lit trail from your bed to the pantry for a midnight snack.
You can program a "party" setting that seamlessly dims the lights and temperature to account for the extra body heat. Then when a new visitor comes to your door, you can ask them to enter with your doorbell camera. You can also set music and decorative lights to power on through your ADT Control app. And if you decide you need another futuristic piece of smart technology, you can simply integrate it to your current system.
Home Automation Idea #4: Get Notifications To Your Smartphone
Always keep abreast of what's happening in your home through automated alerts sent to your mobile device. Whenever a motion sensor on a surveillance camera sense unwanted motion, you'll learn about it via a text or mobile pop-up. Fire and carbon monoxide sensors will trigger an alert so that you'll never come home to an undiscovered emergency. Or have your smart locks ping you when your kids arrive home from the bus. Once you receive a notification, you can decide how to move forward.
Speak with porch visitors through the doorbell cameras to tell them where to hide a delivery. See through your outdoor cameras to judge if the strange movement facilitates a call to the police. Or remotely turn on lights and sound to scare away any suspicious interloper.
Home Automation Idea #5: Be Safe During A Fire
While your home automation system can make you feel protected and secure, they can also help in a fire or other emergencies. When your smoke detectors discover a fire, your home automation system can jump into action! Program the furnace fan to automatically turn on and vent harmful smoke. Then have your home power on all your smart lights to light the way away from the fire, and unlock all the doors for emergency specialists.
In fact, you can calibrate automated protocols to any emergency circumstances. Power on all the lights if a glass break detector triggers. Blare your high decibel speakers when the 2-button medical alert is used. Or get video snippets sent to your mobile device when your smart locks trigger. Almost all of your systems can be synced to work together in any way you think will help shield your home and loved ones.
