Protecting your home is one of the most important things home automation can do for you and your family. First off, your home is more likely to be scoped out by an intruder if they do not see any kind of security system present. The presence of a home protection system alone is going to decrease the risk of having a break-in. For the intruders who break through the house anyways, the security system is going to notify the authorities immediately.
- Protect your valuables. Many of us keep our most valuable possessions tucked away or stored in a safe at home. With a home security system, you can monitor your possessions and always have video footage in view of your safe. The video footage can help catch the intruder’s identity, as well as identify what was taken in the case of a break-in.
- Monitor your home. Having a visual eye on your home while you’re away is a great solution to many fears that homeowners may experience. You can log into your phone and view the footage from your strategically placed cameras around the house to prevent unexpected visits or even just to keep an eye on what the dog might be getting into when you aren’t around!
- Reduce your energy bill. You are able to turn up and down the air conditioning remotely, which is a great solution to some who suffer from dramatic temperatures rising and dropping throughout the day. Another great plus is having access to the lights from your phone! You can turn on the light before you get home at night, turn the light off if you forget, or even strategically turn on lights around the house to make it look like someone is home.
