HOME SECURITY & AUTOMATION - WHAT CAN IT DO FOR YOU?

Thirty years ago, a motion sensor security light was considered smart technology. Today, thanks to innovations in technology, homeowners now have the ability to control major home systems from anywhere in the world using a mobile device or computer. Although this technology used to be very expensive, that is no longer the case. Thanks to the surging popularity of home automation technology, owning a smart home is now a reality for many and we at Cabinets Floors N More believe that within the next two or three years the integration of connected smart appliances, utility control & security systems into homes will be the norm rather than the exception.


What Is a Smart Home?

A Smart Home commonly refers to a residence that has lighting, security, appliances and other major home systems that can be controlled remotely by a homeowner. Smart home technology makes homes safer and helps homeowners save time and money. Most current homes are not outfitted with these systems, as the technology to control them has only recently become widely available and affordable. Therefore, it is often necessary to retrofit your home with this technology which fortunately, is now cost-effective and easy to do

.

What Can Smart Technology Do?

With smart technology, a homeowner can simplify their life. These systems are capable of a wide array of things. You can choose which features are important to you. Here are just a few of the things possible using smart technology:

  • Control thermostats throughout the day from any smartphone
  • Receive a text alert from your refrigerator when you are out of milk
  • Program the lights to come on when you walk into a room
  • Receive a notification when an elderly relative has unusual activity patterns at home
  • Get a notification when your kids come home from school
  • See exactly who is at the door before you answer it with a smart doorbell
  • Get alerted when you receive a package at the door
  • View on camera what is happening inside your home when you are not home
  • Keep your cat’s litter box odor-free by with a smart fan nearby that is programmed to come on whenever the litterbox is used
  • Remotely turn off your water supply if a leak is detected
  • Turn off the coffee pot or lock the front door if you think you might have forgotten to do it while hurrying to get to work on time
  • Feed, water & monitor your pets if you are away from home for an extended period of time
  • Learn your patterns of turning lights on and off so that to potential burglars your home appears to be occupied

Can Smart Home Technology Help a Home Sell Quicker?

Updating your home with smart technology is a great investment. Because so many appliances and entertainment systems already come with built-in smart technology, homeowners are willing to pay extra for a home that can make use of these features. In the not-too-distant future, it is conceivable that many systems, particularly leisure & entertainment systems, will not function without this smart technology.,


The Future of Smart Home Technology

Smart home Technology will increasingly focus on the growing elderly care market. Home automation systems will be geared towards providing solutions for older consumers to help them live independently while improving their safety, health and quality of life. This innovative technology will allow seniors to age in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their home.

Smart homes will soon be able to distinguish homeowners and family members by their heartbeats, fingerprints or other biometrics. When you walk in the door after a long day at work, your smart home will be able to automatically adjust room temperature, lighting and play custom music based on your preferences.

Imagine a bed that makes itself. The smart home of the future will feature gadgets that began cleaning before you even get home from work. So, when you walk in the door, your home is clean and fresh. This kind of technology is not too far away in the future. In fact, there are already numerous smart tools and cleaning gadgets that come on the market every year and make it easier and easier to have a clean house. iRobot’s Roomba, a robotic vacuum, has been around for a while. Roomba will vacuum your entire floor, even when you are not at home, with just a swipe on your smartphone. The future will likely hold even more innovations such as iRobots and similar devices.
