Back in the 1970’s, there was a popular cartoon called “The Jetsons.” It featured a home with complete automation and remote entry. At the beginning, as the show comes on, we see Mr. Jetson getting ready for work, jumping on some sort of conveyor belt and being whisked off to his spaceship to go to work for the day. Amazing how accurate the old cartoons are to the future. The Jetson and the Star Trek era are finally upon us. We are quickly entering the age of home automation systems. Are you thinking about updating your home with home automation?
Here are a few reasons to do so now:
- Convenience– Once your home is automated, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of this before. You can automate lighting systems, security and alarms, home audio systems, home theater systems and much more. It also allows you to turn all your systems off with the touch of a button as you are leaving, and turn them on again when you return.
- Security– With easy alarm integration and automation, you’ll never have to worry if your system is armed. If you forgot to engage it, it can be remotely accessed from another location. If you are away on vacation, you’ll be notified if there is any motion in your home or suspicious activity. Monitor the alarm system remotely from any mobile device or computer.
- Value– You increase the value of your home when you install a home automation system. People will pay more for a home that has automation installed. So use home automation to increase your value.
- Efficiency– Increase the overall efficiency of your home by adding a home automation system. Your home will be automatically adjusted for environmental changes or seamlessly integrate your system where you can shut everything down at once, to save energy.
- Fun– Having a home automation system is also fun. Think about what your friends will think when you turn off all the lights with a clap of your hands or from your portable tablet. Kids will love the innovation too of having everything at their fingertips.
Home automation systems are the wave of the future. The Jetson era is definitely here. You no longer have to worry about your alarm system, whether you remembered to turn off your audio equipment or home theater/tv, or other appliances, and you can save money and energy.
