Put Your Home On Autopilot To Save Money, Time And Also Energy
Every homeowner can remember a time when they wondered, “Did I lock the front door this morning?” Or maybe, “Did I leave a light on?” Some other people can attest to that feeling of dread being aware of their air conditioning system is running full blast while they’re away on a weekend voyage. There is nothing worse compared to worrying about the security of your house – or maybe your rising electricity bill – while you are away.
Luckily, current developments in home technology give relief when it comes to energy-efficiency, security and also time savings. Almost any home can be put on “autopilot” without breaking the bank. Many parts of the house can benefit from some simple technology updates.
Heating and cooling a home accounts for 50 percent or even more of a home’s energy bill, so it is necessary to include the latest technology to make it as easy as possible to be as effectual as possible.
“We have seen several great developments in home technology that increase the energy-efficiency of cooling and heating products,” says Kyle Golden, an energy efficiency expert with Lennox, a leading provider of home comfort solutions. “For example, since thermostats turn into more advanced, property owners now have the capacity to optimize home comfort and energy savings.”
One example of these smart thermostats is the Lennox iComfort S30. Property owners can maximize electric power savings with its one-touch smart away mode that detects when household members leave and return to the home and automatically adjusts to an energy-efficient setting. The iComfort S30 also is the only thermostat which offers first-of-its-kind real-time air quality monitoring.
Water consumption also is a concern with regards to efficiency. Homeowners can cut down on water expenses through the home sprinkler systems that include Wi-Fi technology. These types of systems allow the property owners to start or stop sprinklers from anywhere, avoiding water waste when heavy rains have already saturated the turf. Many systems these days even include wireless capabilities that prevent sprinklers from activating during rain or freezing temperatures.
Property owners can rest easy because of automatic systems that guarantee their property is safe and secure. Companies now offer products that check, open and close garage doors directly from a smartphone, tablet or computer. There are also lock systems that respond only to the fingerprints of residents of the property. If that’s not enough, new technologies send text messages or email updates when doors are locked or unlocked, and can remotely lock doors thru Wi-Fi. And for those people who are wondering who’s there when they’re not, there are now door bells that let property owners to see on their phones who’s at their door remotely, from any location.
- Time savings
Lastly, kitchen appliances now incorporate technologies to streamline the day-to-day routines of homeowners, allowing for maximum time savings. Customers can take the hassle out of searching out the perfect cooking setting with a microwave that can scan a barcode on a dish and automatically changes to the correct time and power for the particular product. Ovens equipped with Wi-Fi allow cooks to monitor their meals on a mobile gadget and put the crock pot to shame.
Families may also save time while enjoying the ease of home automation. Wi-Fi-enabled mailboxes send text message or email notifications when mail has arrived. Parents can even save the time it takes to plead their child to quit playing video games simply by using a device that automatically limits the time spent on an electronic device.
Peace of mind isn’t all about costly, over-the-top upgrades. Home automation can save time and money, and also offer personalized comfort and security, frequently by using simple technology tweaks.
