In many ways, technology has taken a hold of our day-to-day lives. But whether we like it or not, it helps us make our way through each and every day in today’s world. However, as it progresses further and further, we find ourselves continually getting back to where we started. Today, we are using home automation technology to help homeowners get back to their roots.

Home automation technology is helping homeowners find a more natural sleep cycle. Automated lighting means more than just easy control over the overheads and lamps. It means automating those lights, along with your shades, to reveal the sunrise every morning as your alarm clock begins to ring. Then, after a long day, crawl into bed as your shades are automatically drawn in a dark room at the perfect sleeping temperature. 

Ultimately, home automation is about taking care of your comfort so you don’t have to. Set it up, and forget about it. And you get to choose how detailed your settings are! Slowly brighten the lights in the house to match your morning routine. Turn lights off as you leave the house, and have them on by the time you return. Slowly dim your lights and draw your shades as bedtime approaches to prepare for a perfect REM cycle. Setting scenes to match your daily routine will not only simplify your life but also save you time, money, and give you peace of mind. 

Automating your lighting can be one of the more effective ways to keep out intruders, whether you’re home or not. Keep your family safe with automated outdoor floodlights and security cameras. Remember Home Alone? Automating your home to flick on a few lights inside when the sun goes down is a great way to remind those on the outside, that someone is inside!

Having fully automated Environmental Controls from the time you move in not only increases your home value but also your quality of life. At Ficrest, we are using the latest technology to help homeowners get back to their roots.
