3 Smart Home Automation Technologies That Can Save You Money


Believe it or not, home automation technology can save you money in the long run.

You probably think we’re crazy, suggesting that installing all that technology to turn your home into a “Smart Home” can actually save you money. Well, believe it or not, it’s true. You’re right that it will take a bit of an initial investment of time and money, but the results will be SO worth it. Over time, all of the home automation technology that you install will save you money and improve your energy efficiency. So let’s get started!

Solar Panels

We want to start here because, again, you probably think we’re crazy. There’s no way that adding all this technology to my home and turning it into a smart home can be energy efficient. Well here’s the kicker. You don’t have to start big — maybe just a solar light on your patio. If you’re ready to take the dive and make a big investment though, solar power costs can be 20-30% lower than standard energy utilities, saving money in the medium to long term.

Programmable or Zone-Based Thermostats

Heating and cooling costs are often one of the largest contributors to high energy bills. Old-fashioned heating and cooling systems are inefficient, climate controlling large, sometimes unoccupied spaces. Programmable thermostats allow you to control the temperature in your smart home from your smartphone or tablet, and can be set to reduce energy consumption during times of the day when you aren’t even in your house. Zone-based thermostats let you, as the name suggests, divide your home into zones and control the temperatures individually. So if your basement requires a lot of heat to stay warm in the winter, but you don’t spend any significant time in your basement, you can keep the upstairs toasty while you let the basement chill out.

Smart Power Consumption

If you have a bad habit of leaving lights on throughout your house and racking up the energy bill, smart home automation will save the day. Whether connected to an app on your smartphone or to motion/occupation sensors, you’ll have a much easier time keeping your lights off and your energy consumption down.  These technologies can also be connected to other energy suckers in your smart home, like entertainment systems and small appliances.

Smart homes are on the rise in 2016, and it’s not a bad trend to hop on. There are tons of benefits to integrating home automation technology into your house, and ITG is always happy to help!
