How to Get Started with Home Automation

home automation

Home automation can get pretty intense, so know the basics before diving in.

We’ve been getting pretty deep into home automation in the recent weeks with posts on hacking smart locks, the future of home automation, and a look at 5G. We thought that this week we might get back to basics and talk about the first steps of home automation and how it can be a practical choice for your home.


Being able to control your lights from a smartphone, tablet, or computer can give you better control of your home and help you save money on energy costs. Need the kids to get to bed at a certain time? Give them a gentle reminder by dimming their lights. Want to make your morning wake up call a little gentler? You can schedule your lights to slowly come on and help get you out of bed.


Remote controls get lost, that’s just an unfortunate part of life. Most cable providers offer apps that allow you to control your television from your smart device so you don’t have to worry about replacing the dead batteries in the remote. A professional home automation installation company can set up your device to control your entire home theatre, including music. Some systems even let you play different music in separate rooms of the house, all through the same system.


Perhaps the biggest draw to home automation is the ability to schedule and control your heating and air conditioning. Empty house by 10:00 a.m.? Set your system to let the air conditioning work a little less while no one’s home, and have the house back to a comfortable temperature before you get home.


On the road already and realized you didn’t lock the door? Just grab that smart phone and lock it up from the road. You can also integrate security cameras into your system so you can keep an eye on your home while you’re away, or make sure the kids got home from school.
