Smart homes are increasingly becoming the best possible option that can both help boost your home’s security while also making life a whole lot more convenient.

What is a home automation system?

Home automation is not a new concept but it is one of the more interesting developments in the world of smart home technology.

When we talk about home automation, we’re talking about those features of the home that can be controlled using electric or automated systems.

Home automation includes centralising security by controlling the locks on all of the doors in the home and gates on the property, having control over various appliances, lights, CCTV system as well as control over the heating or cooling of the home.

What are the benefits of home automation?

As you can imagine, smart home technology comes with numerous benefits. An increase in the ease with which you can take full control over your home is one of the biggest benefits that you can expect from intelligent home systems.

With the system, you can also double-check that all of your appliances are turned off when you leave home in the morning.

You can easily arrange your entire automation system using your favourite devices such as your laptop, smartphone or tablet.

But easy use is not the only benefit that you can look forward to. With your smart home automation you can also expect:

1. To add a new level of safety and security to your home. Home automation and security systems are synonymous, and together can make a remarkable improvement to your security.

Turning on the lights with just a tap of a finger before you arrive home can be a crime deterrent.

Home automation is not just a great security feature. With the system, you can also double-check that all of your appliances are turned off when you leave home in the morning.

2. Automated door locks are the next big feature and a great benefit.

The system can give you control over your door locks, which can be a great use should you accidentally forget to lock up when you leave in the morning.

You can also adjust the temperature within your home. This applies to underfloor heating as well as cooling air conditioning.

If you can simply lock your doors by tapping your smartphone device, tablet, or with a click of your mouse, you’ll be able to focus on your work instead of spending your day worrying.

You’ll also be able to monitor your home and receive an alert should someone gain entry into your home.

3. Security cameras are another part of the home automation system, and they’re the best eyes you could have in your home.

With an intelligent home system, you’ll not only be able to see what’s happening in your home but will be able to keep recorded clips of the goings on.

4. You can also adjust the temperature within your home. This applies to underfloor heating as well as cooling air conditioning. This means that your house can be heated or cooled before you arrive home.

5. Home automation can aid with energy efficiency. Having precise control over the power used as well as the temperature can ensure that your home is more energy efficient. This is why smart homes are a part of the appliances that you can use to be more environmentally conscious in your home.

The light control system for the home is not only wonderfully convenient but the value of your home can also be increased when you have such a system installed.

Depending on the system that you have in your home, it can suggest energy efficient settings.

6. Smart home technology is continuously developing, which means that once you have such a system installed, you can benefit from the latest developments for years to come.

7. Home lighting automation

Having full control over your lighting is a benefit that comes with intelligent homes. The light control system for the home is not only wonderfully convenient but the value of your home can also be increased when you have such a system installed.

A light system for your home will enable you to turn the lights on or off from a remote location.

Not only does home automation lighting increase your home’s security, but it’s also a great way to save energy. The system will also alert you if the lights have been left on in the house so you can turn them off wherever you are.

Automated lighting control systems are designed to work alongside other green energy systems when they have been designed to comply with Green building standards.

While with your standard lighting you need to turn on each light individually, with this lighting, you have a smart light switch which can control every light in the home using just one device. This is what makes having automated lighting such a convenience in the home.

You can make your home fully automated and enjoy all of the benefits that come with having remote control over your security and your lighting. - Leigh-Anne Harber
