Copy of Untitled Design-24

Technology is rapidly advancing, so owning a smart home is becoming a necessity more and more every day. In the past, smart homes were considered a part of a luxurious lifestyle, but today they have become an important part of our lives.

A smart home means your home has a smart home automation system that connects with your appliances to automate specific tasks and is typically remotely controlled. You can use a smart home automation system to program your lights, set and control your thermostat, or monitor a smoke/carbon monoxide alarm. 

You may be thinking to yourself, "Do I really need another fancy home gadget?" The answer is YES because a smart home automation system is so much more than that. 

Brandon Lewis, F.H. Furr Electrical Coach/Trainer explained, “Homeowners should consider a smart home automation system because it will save you time and money, conserve energy, and increase safety.”

If that’s not enough to convince you, here are 5 reasons why you should make your home a smart home. 

1. Convenience

Having a smart home automation system allows you to deal with many electronic gadgets and systems from anywhere. From turning off lights to monitoring your thermostat, you can control your home from anywhere! The convenient features of a smart home automation system are enough to convince anyone to transform their home into a smart home.

2. Efficiency

With the help of a smart home automation system, you can operate your heating and cooling system or control lights with a single press of a button from anywhere. Not only is this an efficient procedure, but it will also help you lower your utility bill! Smart home automation technologies such as smart thermostats or smart lighting connect to a centralized control that can act on its own or be programmed to control energy consumption and increase savings.

3. Comfort

It's simple, smart homes make your life more comfortable! You will no longer have to move all over the house to perform various functions. With a smart home automation system, you can perform most household operations through your mobile device while sitting comfortably on the sofa!

4. Customization

Smart home automation systems also allow you to customize your electronic gadgets the way you like them. For example, you can have your thermostat automatically adjust the temperature in your home or alter the brightness of your lights. 

5. Peace Of Mind

Lastly, a smart home automation system gives you peace of mind that your home and family are protected. With a smart smoke/carbon monoxide alarm, you can feel confident that you will be alerted with specific details on why the alarm went off.
