Everyday Solutions: How Smart Home Automation Makes Life Easier for the Homeowner on-the-Go
How to Enhance Your Atlanta Spaces with Integrated Technology
Many of our clients love to while away their weekends in the comfort and luxury of a home theater or media room. But when it’s time to work, they need a smart home automation system that helps them get through the day. Whether you need to stay focused by eliminating menial daily tasks or stay in control when you’re away from home, integrated technology can enhance your everyday life. Read on to discover how smart automation helps you out when you’re on the go.
Be the Early Bird With Smart Shading
You know the old saying: “the early bird gets the worm”. Well, there’s no better way to wake up bright and early than with a healthy helping of all-natural sunlight. But plenty of homeowners prefer to eliminate outside disturbances through the night by drawing the blinds before bedtime. So how do you get the best of both worlds? The answer is simple: smart shading.
When automated shading is integrated into your smart home system, you have complete control over the position of your shades and blinds with the touch of a button. Pre-program the shades to rise at a certain time of the morning, or let them learn to react on their own to different conditions and habits.
Take for instance Lutron’s Hyperion Solar-adaptive Shading. It’s a software that is capable of reacting to the sun itself. When the sun rises, so do your shades. But if it begins to get too hot, or your system begins to expend too much energy on cooling, the shades adjust accordingly. The technology is so advanced that it speaks to all of the areas of your home in order to develop a strategy that will help lower costs and keep you moving throughout the day.
Access Your Home Remotely
Once you’re up and out of bed, it’s likely you’ll be heading out of the house. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you have to lose touch with your smart home. Stay in control with the Control4 app. Whether you’re in the area or miles away, you can monitor your energy usage, review security footage, lock or unlock doors and adjust the lighting – all from your tablet or smartphone.
If you receive an alert that says your energy usage is too high, turn off the A/C and lower the Lutron shades to conserve energy without losing the cool environment. Or, in the winter months, let your Hyperion shades adjust automatically so that when you get home you walk into a warm house.
