If you’ve resolved to start making the most out of life in 2020, you’ll need technology to help you do it. One of the most useful technologies to make it happen is home automation, which tackles some of your most complex tasks in a single tap on your smartphone. Here’s a scenario that shows how valuable it can be.
You’re working hard to support your family, and it’s time to get the kids in bed so you can take care of business. Of course, you also want to take a few minutes to spend with the kids. But before you can do that, you have task after task to take care of:
- Lock all the doors to secure the home.
- Pull all the window shades down for privacy.
- Turn off the lights so everyone can settle down.
- Turn down the thermostat to get the family comfortable.
- And of course, arm the security system.
By the time you’ve done it all, the kids have nodded off. You can get to work, but you miss out on family time. With home automation in your security system, you get that time back by tapping on a single Scene in your app. It takes care of all the tasks in an instant.
Setting Your Smartphone Scenes
Your home automation app features four Scene buttons. Each Scene runs multi-device commands so that all your smart devices work together the way you want them to. That bedtime scene is called Sleep, while the other three Scenes can help you automate the rest of your day. To change the commands built into those Scenes is easy, and you can name them anything you would like. They can include your alarm, locks, smart lights and even smart thermostat. And if you use Alexa or Siri, you can take your home automation to the next level with voice command.
When all those extra minutes add up, you’ll have a lot more time to live life to the fullest in 2020. For questions on adding home automation to your security system, contact Park Security Systems. We’ll be happy to answer them.
