As technology has advanced, the house hasn’t been left behind, with countless different options on the market today to make your house a smart home. This is important because 50% of people spend at least some time working from home around the world. In other words, there is a lot of call to be in technologically advanced environments. So, whether it’s a home audio solution or a home security system, here are some smart home features to consider that will easily integrate with Control4.
Locks for Your Home
How often do you leave your home without remembering if you locked it or not? Oftentimes, by the time you think about your unlocked door, you’re too far away to do anything about it. That’s why having smart locks on your doors is so important. They’re, effectively, a virtual lock that allows you to unlock or lock the doors to your home through an app on your phone, giving you peace of mind that your home is always safe.
A Smart Lighting System
After you install a smart lighting system into your home, you won’t ever be able to go back to a traditional lighting system. The convenience that comes from being able to turn on and off any particular light in your home is remarkable. A dimming option lets you set exactly how much light is in a particular room too. In the case you climb into bed and realize that you left the kitchen light on, you won’t have to get out of bed to turn it off. Instead, you can turn off the light remotely and from the comfort of your own bed. You can even integrate your smart lighting with your home audio solution, dimming lights when you’re listening to music or watching a movie.
A Modern Security System
There are so many modern and smart security systems that you are bound to know a few. Their great strength is the remote access that comes with being able to see what your cameras see from anywhere around the world. This access, through a simple app on your phone, puts you in a position where you can be happy in the knowledge that your home is secured from any potential issues.
Smart homes used to be thought of as a utopian advancement. Well, we now have the ability to convert our homes into smart homes with lighting and security automation and advanced home audio solutions. The question is no longer can you have smart technology in your home, but what smart technology do you want in your home?
