One of the advantages of buying a Vivint home security system in Akron is that you can sync it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat can make your house more comfortable 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 with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these gadgets are by themselves, they can have an even greater impact when utilized together with your security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Akron that will make your living space much more responsive to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you travel for work
Along with a before bed routine, you can set your automation systems to arm when your home is vacant. With your Vivint App, you can protect your home through a single button tap. Now you can be sure that every door is secure, every light is no longer on, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even close the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it wide open.
You don't need to keep your house locked up the entire day. Open the doors for incoming family or service folk via the mobile app. Or set your home on alert without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your house, your system powers on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your bedtime habits has become routine: turn off all the lights, lock the doors, set the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how often have you woken up to find that you failed to lock the side door or left the bathroom light on? And once you forget to do one section of your nightly routine, it's simple to neglect it another time, as well. Before you know it, your forgotten regimen becomes routine on its own.
But you can guarantee that your house is prepared for bedtime every night when you automate your nighttime program. Through your Akron home security system, you can craft scenarios that fine-tune all your tech without you leaving bed. With a press of a button, you can secure the doors, shut off the lights, change the thermostat, and set your security system. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to touch a button. Designate your automation to activate at a specific time -- such as midnight.
