Home On Autopilot

Put Your Home On Autopilot For You To Save Money, Time As Well As Energy


Each and every homeowner can remember a time when they pondered, “Did I lock the front door this morning?” Or, “Did I leave a light on?” Some other people can verify that feeling of anxiety knowing that their ac is operating full blast while they’re away on a weekend excursion. There isn’t anything worse compared to worrying about the safety of the home – or perhaps your increasing power bill – while you’re away.

Fortunately, current innovations in home technology provide peacefulness when it comes to energy-efficiency, security as well as time savings. Almost any home can be put on “autopilot” without breaking the bank. Several parts of the house can benefit from some simple technology improvements.

  • Efficacy

Cooling and heating a house accounts for 50 % or more of a home’s electric power bill, so it’s vital to include the most up-to-date technology in order to make it as easy as possible to be as effectual as possible.

“We have seen certain great improvements in home technology that maximize the energy-efficiency of heating and cooling products,” states Kyle Golden, an energy efficiency professional with Lennox, a leading provider of home comfort solutions. “For example, as thermostats become more advanced, property owners now have the capability to improve home comfort as well as energy savings.”

One example of these smart thermostats is the Lennox iComfort S30. Homeowners can make the most of electrical power savings from its one-touch smart away mode, which detects when family members leave and return to the home and automatically adjusts to an energy-efficient setting. The iComfort S30 also is the only thermostat that gives first-of-its-kind real-time air quality monitoring.

Water consumption is also a concern when it comes to effectiveness. Property owners can cut down on water expenses by making use of home sprinkler systems that include Wi-Fi technology. These types of systems allow property owners to start or stop sprinklers from anywhere, staying away from water waste when heavy rains have already soaked the turf. Many systems at this time even include wireless capabilities which keep sprinklers from activating during rain or freezing temperatures.

  • Safety

Homeowners can relax merit to automatic systems that ensure their house is safe and secure. Companies now provide products that check, open and close garage doors directly from a smartphone, tablet or personal computer. You will also find lock systems that respond only to the fingerprints of residents of the property. However, if that’s not enough, new technologies send texts or email updates when doors are locked or unlocked, and can remotely lock doors via Wi-Fi. And for people who are wondering who is there when they are not, there are now door bells that let homeowners to see on their phones who’s at their door remotely, from any location.

  • Time savings

Last of all, kitchen appliances now add technologies to streamline the day-to-day routines of homeowners, allowing for maximum time savings. Customers can take the trouble out of selecting the perfect cooking setting through a microwave that can scan a barcode on a dish and automatically adjusts to the correct time and power for the specific product. Ovens built with Wi-Fi allow cooks to monitor their meals on a mobile device and put the crock pot to shame.

Families can also save time while enjoying the convenience of home automation. Wi-Fi-enabled mailboxes send text message or mail notifications when email has arrived. Parents can even save the time it takes to beg their child to quit playing video games simply using a tool that automatically limits the time spent on an electronic device.

Peace of mind is not all about expensive, over-the-top upgrades. Home automation can help to conserve time and money, as well as offer personalized comfort and security, often through simple technology tweaks.
