One of the benefits of installing a Vivint home security system in Elizabethtown is that you can sync it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat can make your home the ideal temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks allow you to remote control your doors. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these gadgets are by themselves, they can have an even greater impact when utilized together with your security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Elizabethtown that will make your living space much more attuned to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you go for work
Along with a bedtime schedule, you can program your automation systems to set when your house is empty. With your Vivint App, you can protect your house through an easy button touch. Now you can guarantee that every entryway is secure, every light is off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are activated. You can even close the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left up.
You don't have to keep your living space on guard the whole day. Unlock the doors for returning family or service folk via the smartphone app. Or put your home on lockdown without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your property, your system powers on every time you roll down the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms switch off, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your bedtime schedule has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the door, change the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to see that you forgot to lock the side door or left the bathroom light on? And after you fail to do one thing on your nightly checklist, it's easy to forget it another evening, too. Without realizing it, your neglected checklist becomes routine on its own.
But you can guarantee that your living space is prepared for bed every evening when you automate your bedtime routine. Through your Elizabethtown home security system, you can craft rules that fine-tune all your devices without you going around the house. With a touch of a button, you can secure the doors, shut off the lights, lower the thermostat, and set your security system. Or don't worry about not remembering to touch a button. Set your automation to turn on at a specific time -- such as 11pm.
