Questions such as “did I lock the door?”, “Did I turn the lights off?”, “is the security alarm armed?” keep ringing in every person’s mind when they leave their homes. But there’s a solution for this.
A “smart home” is more than capable enough to look after all your home needs. Whether your door needs to be locked or your lights need to be switched off, a smart home can provide all the above mentioned facilities and much more. In a smart home, all your electrical appliances are connected with each other through the home network and the Internet. This way, you can communicate with all your devices through a single controlling device such as a remote or a Smartphone depending on your choice. Anything which uses energy can be “put” on the home network and thus putting it at your command. These electrical appliances can range from lights and security alarms to locks and thermostats. Smart Homes provide many advantages over “Dumb Homes”. The first thing you get with smart homes is peace of mind. You don’t have to worry about any sort of unlocked doors, unarmed alarms and running appliances. Whether you’re in the office or on the road, if you have access to the internet, you can control each and every appliance in your house, provided that appliance is available on the home network.
The smart homes have a few more tips and tricks up their sleeves. For example, you can turn on the TV and the coffee maker from your bed, you can watch if your children are doing their homework or not and you can even control the thermostat of your house if it starts to feel too chilly. You also get the functionality to activate the “sleep” mode for various appliances. In sleep mode, the appliances automatically switch off if they remain inactive for a specified period of time.
A Smart home can also return to working state at once when given command. Since the thermostat for cooling and heating the home can also be controlled by a Smart home very easily, you can turn down the heater and the cooler when not in use and thus, save money by saving gas, Electric. You can even automate the blinds on the windows to open and close at certain times so as to preserve the home temperature, further reducing the need for a heater/air conditioner. All these savings in electricity and gas can add up to a huge amount.
Another great thing which smart homes offer is excellent security. With versatile cameras and sensors, you can be sure that no one can trespass your property. You can remotely monitor the cameras and change its view at will. You can put a timer on the camera so that it will record only for a certain period of time. While cameras can be used to check on trespassers, the sensors will help ensure that the house is safe from internal troubles as well. In case of an unfortunate event such as a fire or a gas leak, the sensors will detect the event and will not only notify you but will notify the concerned authorities as well. That is just how safe the “Smart Home” is.
