Smart Home Automation – Is It Right For You?

When you think of smart home automation, what comes to mind? Does the idea of saving money and security spark your interest? Elite A/V is a company that cares about our client’s well-being.  We all struggle with the same common problems and we want to help.  It has been said money makes the world go round. You may think of home automation is a luxury, however, note how some options can really be worth the investment. This article is designed to help you understand the infinite possibilities of automating your home, who really could benefit from this technology and how to get started.

Families benefit from a smart home.

In today’s society, the workforce is on the rise.  Many parents get home later than their children.  Checking in on the kids has never been easier with home automation options. Get a notification right on your phone that your kiddo arrived home safely and has locked the door behind them.

This can be achieved with a specific front door unlock code designed just for your kids.  Look in on your cameras to see if they are doing their homework like they say they are.  Additionally,  families benefit by feeling more secure when they leave the home.   Having sensors paired with surveillance cameras around the parameters of your home to detect movement and start to record.  For more in-depth information on security benefits check out this blog HERE.

Pet care is another great way smart devices can help.  Automatic feeders, sensors, and monitoring is a great way to help assist you when you are away from those awesome fur babies.

Elderly and their children benefit with a smart response.

Trying to determine the safest care for your aging loved ones can be emotional.  Having a scare of your parent not answering the phone when you call to check in on them can be gut-wrenching.  Smart home technology is incredible to put your mind at ease.  Sensors can send data if your loved one has moved around the house frequently or perhaps the sensors have not gone off in a while.  These sensors send data to a dashboard on an app to your phone.  When your parent hasn’t set off a single motion detector in their house, can spring to action.  Phone and video intercoms can be placed in your aging parents home to allow them to answer by voice even if they are stuck on the floor.  You can automatically lock doors for them at night and set the alarm to stay.

Perhaps your parents are living with you or in the casita on your property.  You can monitor if the front door opens with flashing lights in your home or notifications if you are at work. All in all, many children and elderly benefit by keeping them safe with a smart home.  The smart home list continues with emergency response technology if your loved one has fallen. Enhanced alarms to compensate for the loss of eyesight and hearing. Memory aids offering reminders for daily medications and dosages and safety features such as automatically turning off appliances.  As you can see challenges are significant when a loved one is restricted, smart home technology is a fantastic investment for your peace of mind.

Disabled benefit from gaining assistance.

We often take for granted being able to pick up a remote or walk around the home easily.  Unfortunately, some suffer from daily tasks.

Home automation is becoming a viable option for older adults and people with disabilities who would prefer to stay in the comfort of their homes rather than move to a healthcare facility.  Smart home automation can enhance the quality of a disabled loved one’s life by allowing them to have voice commands to turn on and off the television, fan, lights, thermostat and more.  Additionally, motion sensors in hallways can turn on and off lights as they are working their way to the kitchen creating a safe pathway.

Similar to helping elderly, emergency features to allow for a safer life.  Devices can collect data of heart rate, respiration, temperature and other vital functions and alert family and their physician if there is a problem.  Home robotics to help with household chores as well.

Finally, giving a disabled loved one more independence really touches their heart and allows everyone to feel better about such a challenging situation.

Out of many options Where do you get started?

Home networks are an important place to start.  There is a tremendous demand on your WIFI and network with the overflow of devices connected to your network.  Having a safe, reliable and fast network connection helps ensure smooth smart home automation.

Additionally, you need a brain to connect these sensors and systems to.  Elite A/V specializes in one of the best hubs Control 4.  This is a device that allows data to be collected and you can remotely access the information then carry out commands. It’s best to start with this device and build your home automation “toolbox” over time.

In conclusion, as you can see the value of home automation can outweigh the expense.  Elite A/V likes to address the ever-growing needs of families with a consult to help you figure out the right direction to take with smart home devices.  We are trained professionals with many years of experience in home automation here in Las Vegas.
