What is custom home automation? It is all of our devices and appliances sending data over our Wi-Fi network so we can control all aspects of our home either through a wall-mounted user interface, a mobile phone app, a tablet, or a website. It may sound complex, but smart home technology was actually created to make our lives easier. This includes having a thermostat that knows you want the temperature in your home to be a little warmer when you’re at work and a little cooler when you come home, or a doorbell that allows you to see and speak to someone at your door even when you are not home. To better understand custom home automation and the various ways it can benefit the way you live in your luxury home, here are a few of its most common variations.
With smart lighting automation, you can use a remote or an app on your phone to dim the lights or turn them off completely. Custom lighting technology will also allow you to set timers for any of the lights in your home, or just turn them on or off at your command using an app on your phone, to make it seem as if you are home when you are not.
Smart thermostats learn from your behavior and allowing you to control the temperature of your home from your smart phone device. They also show your energy consumption in real-time and can adjust themselves to control variables such as the humidity in your home. Hyderabad summers are hot, but you don’t want to increase your cooling costs by keeping your home extra cool when you are not home. With custom temperature automation, you can use the smart phone app to adjust the temperature before you arrive so your home is comfortably cool. The smart thermostat even tells you how much time it will take for you home to reach the desired temperature.
One of the most important aspects of home automation is increased security. Smart home security allows you to keep surveillance of your home through the internet, which means you can view the camera feeds of your security system through a protected website. You can utilize this technology to keep watch over your home during your extended absence. A custom security automation system goes beyond door, window, and motion sensors to include being able to monitor door locks, garage door openers, lights, smoke/CO/gas detectors, water sensors, and much more, all through a website or smart phone app.
Smart home automation allows you to communicate with your home appliances in ways that were impossible before. Smart refrigerators can now take a picture of their contents and send it to your smart phone so you can literally see what is in there. Smart sensors can even take inventory and let you know what products are about to expire in your pantry. Smart microwaves can figure out how long it takes to cook a certain food. A smart vacuum can be activated from your smart phone so you can come home to a clean house. Voice control systems are hands-free devices that can play music, control other smart home devices, read the news, set your alarms, play music, and do shopping.
