One of the perks of installing a Vivint home security system in Allentown is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices like a smart thermostat should make your home the perfect temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks empower you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these devices are on their own, they can have an even greater impact when used together with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Allentown that will make your home much more attuned to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on the defensive when you travel for work
Along with an evening procedure, you can set your automation parameters to set when your house is vacant. With your Vivint App, you can secure your house through one button touch. Now you can be sure that every entryway is secure, every light is no longer on, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even batten down the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it up.
You don't have to keep your house on guard the whole day. Open the doors for incoming visitors or service professionals via the smartphone app. Or set your home on alert without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your house, your system turns on every time you roll down the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed ritual has become routine: turn off the lights, lock the front door, change the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to find that you forgot to lock the side door or left the kitchen light on? And after you fail to do one part of your nightly checklist, it's simple to overlook it another evening, too. Before you know it, your neglected regimen becomes routine.
But you can ensure that your house is ready for bedtime every evening when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Allentown home security system, you can craft scenarios that set all your tech without you going around the house. With a tap of a screen, you can secure the doors, shut off the lights, lower the thermostat, and activate your alarm. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to press a button. Program your automation to activate at a specific time -- such as 10pm.
