img_thermastat_doorbell-1We all know that home improvement is an investment. Fortunately, the more high quality the materials and more advanced the technology used in your home, the more the property will be worth. Not to mention, the better you will be prepared for security and efficiency issues as well.

Outfitting your home with the most advanced features is, therefore, a wise venture, and few features have more potential than Smart Home technology. With a comprehensive system for regulating and maintaining your house, you can save money and improve your quality of life through these many benefits:

 

Energy Efficiency

Smart Home technology allows your home to act for you to maximize efficiency. The Smart Thermostat, for example, can be automated based on your location, activity, and even the weather. The system can automatically adjust the temperature inside your home, lessening the amount of energy used on heating or cooling. It can even alert you and make adjustments if a window is open. As a result, you will not have to spend as much money on energy bills for climate control. Smart Home technology is, thus, a wise investment in the future of both your finances and the planet’s health.

 

Cyber Security

Given that almost every modern device contains some type of computer, hackers have more opportunities than ever to steal sensitive data. A comprehensive Smart Home system can defend all of your devices from the same central source. Take the SafeTouch Neo system for example; the 128 bit AES encryption offers exceptionally high level of defense against analysis tools and digital attacks. No matter how many times hackers try to get your information, security measures will be there to keep them out, and you and your family will be safe from even the most sophisticated digital threats.

 

Added Safety

In addition to cyber security, Smart Homes can guard against old-fashioned threats. Using a network of cameras and motion sensors, they can monitor your house at all times and send you updates should a threat emerge, even when you aren’t home. Smart Home technology also bolsters traditional locks with codes, key cards, fingerprint identification, and other forms of access that are far more secure against would-be thieves. Smart Home tech can, therefore, give you and your family greater peace of mind, and—an added bonus—may also lower your insurance premiums.

 

Complete Control

Smart Home technology easily integrates with smartphones, giving you full control of your home from any location. This allows you to enhance your lifestyle in a range of different ways. If you aren’t sure whether you locked the door, you can check without returning to the house, and if the door is unlocked, you can lock it remotely. You can check who’s at the door from work or the grocery store. You can control the temperature at home without being anywhere near the thermostat. For the sake of convenience and efficiency, Smart Home technology is a must.

 

Accessibility

If, for instance, you or a family member has a mobility issue or if you are traveling, Smart Homes let you control the features of your house remotely. From your smartphone or by voice command, you can order the lights to turn on or off, lock your doors, place phone calls, and perform a myriad of other functions. Smart Home technology can even take care of lawn watering and other laborious tasks, performing them according to whatever schedule you set.
