From cars that can stop on their own before you have an accident to keys that can start your car without turning the ignition and watches that know when you’re feeling stressed, smart technology has crept its way into almost every corner of our lives—and our homes are no exception.
Home automation is fast becoming the standard among Australian homes, and when it offers so many benefits, it’s not hard to work out why.
Here are just some of the benefits of home automation that plenty of Aussies are enjoying right now…
It makes life easier
We’d all like to find more time in our day—and home automation is helping us do just that by simplifying the way we manage our homes.
Smart appliances like robot vacuum cleaners that clean your floors for you, smart washing machines that can put a load of washing on so it’s ready to hang out when you walk through the door, and fridges that allow you to take a peep inside while you’re at the supermarket to check what groceries you’re running low on have delivered new efficiencies that make daily life that little bit easier.
Now, smart speakers have taken home automation to the next level by allowing us to manage most of our household smart devices centrally simply by talking. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
It can save you money
Gone are the days where you’d have to foot the bill for accidentally leaving your heater or air conditioner running all day. Today’s smart home climate systems can be set to run to a designated schedule or can even be controlled remotely via an app on your smartphone so you can quickly switch it off before you rack up an expensive energy bill.
Even more, things like smart inverters which can be connected to a home solar energy system are another example of how home automation can save us money—by providing granular data about solar panel performance, homeowners are able to ensure their solar system is always operating optimally, allowing them to get the most value out of their system.
It can keep you safe
From being able to switch your lights on and off to make your home look lived in while you’re on holiday to having access to a live video feed of your home from any location in the world through your smartphone, home automation has made it significantly easier to protect ourselves, our homes and our belongings.
Modern home security systems now adopt a range of cutting-edge technology, such as biometric entry systems and motion detection systems, which have made it nearly impossible for burglars and intruders to gain access to our homes without us knowing about it.
Additionally, many home security systems can also be combined with things like smoke, carbon monoxide and flood detection sensors to provide protection against other types of emergencies, ensuring we’re always kept safe and protected.
