One of the benefits of choosing a Vivint home security system in New Brunswick is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices like a smart thermostat should make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Smart locks allow you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again with your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even larger impact when used together with your security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for New Brunswick that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you travel for work
Along with a bedtime procedure, you can designate your automation systems to set when your home is not currently occupied. With your Vivint App, you can defend your home with a single button touch. Now you can ensure that every door is locked, every light is no longer on, the alarms are set, and your cameras are on watch. You can even batten down the garage door through the app if you accidentally left it wide open.
You don't have to keep your home on guard the entire day. Unlatch the doors for returning family or service workers via the mobile app. Or place your home on guard without even looking at your phone. By placing a geofence around your house, your network of devices powers on every time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms switch off, and your doors unlock when you come up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home to bed
Your nighttime habits has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the front door, change the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to discover that you failed to lock the side door or left the kitchen light burning? And once you neglect to do one section of your evening routine, it's simple to overlook it the next night, as well. Without realizing it, your forgotten ritual becomes a habit on its own.
But you can guarantee that your house is ready for bed every night when you automate your nighttime program. Through your New Brunswick home security system, you can create scenarios that adjust all your tech without you leaving bed. With a tap of a button, you can secure the doors, turn off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and activate your alarm. Or don't worry about failing to remember to press a button. Set your automation to activate at a predetermined time -- such as 10pm.
