Why You Should Invest in Home Automation Technology
Many people believe that your home should reflect your lifestyle and how you intend to live. It should also be a place where you feel the safest, by allowing you to enjoy the comforts of your home whilst being protected from the dangers outside. This is one of the ways that home automation technology can help you, thanks to Crestron home automation technology.
A truly automated home controls nearly every aspect of your home that you would ordinarily have to do yourself by hand. For example, one of the ways that the Crestron system is for security, as it has the ability to sense when you are not at home, thanks to motion sensors. These sensors can be strategically placed throughout your house, and when a disturbance is noted, a security company can be contacted. Also, when you leave your home, the system will shut down all your lighting and systems so no energy is wasted, saving the environment and money.
Crestron has been in the home automation industry for over four decades and their systems are second to none in our opinion. Each year, they continually push the barriers and raise the bar of innovation which other companies find difficult to keep up with. Their reputation is certainly well earned! Other areas which can be controlled by Crestron include inside and outside lighting, audio/visual system and physical security, all of which can be controlled from your smart devices, such as an iPhone or iPad.
When we tried out the Crestron home automation system, we tried out the following features:
Lighting – Automatic control of the lighting is great when you go out, as it can switch lights on and off to give the impression that someone is home, which is perfect for deterring any opportunistic thefts. When you walk into a room, the Crestron Lighting system can automatically turn on the lights for you. This is a very cool feature, and you will quickly wonder how you managed to go for so long without it!
Home Security – Automated home security is the greatest benefit of this system. The motion sensors work as predicted and the cameras capture great images of any disturbance caused. This reduces the likelihood of any burglaries from taking place, which helps to protect your family and your property.
Audio/Visual Systems – Home theatre is something I really enjoy and is one of the more popular features of the automated home system for people who buy it. If you have an audio and visual system installed, coupled with a high definition projector, it will really transform how you view media. It is like being in a cinema! Oh, and it is a great talking point in your home.
As you can see, there are many reasons why you should be investing in home automation technology in your home. So why not go ahead and give it a try! Have you installed this technology in your home? If so, let us know of your experiences.
