The Benefits of Your Smart Technology Products & Systems Working Together
The options for your total home automation are virtually endless, and your entire Point Loma, CA house is a blank canvas to work with and automate. Once you determine the needs of each area of your home, you can decide how best to control your smart technologies based on your preferences and needs. A comprehensive plan before installation can help save you from finding out later that some of your devices don’t communicate with one another.
An integrated home control system is manageable via a centralized control panel, universal remote, voice control, or with a tap on the screen of your smartphone or tablet. You can dim lights, control the television, close drapes, adjust the thermostat, or play music throughout your home, among many other tasks. This blog will cover the main ways automating your smart technology products can make life simpler and your home more efficient.

The last thing you want to worry about in your busy life is whether or not your security system is working. You can incorporate motion sensors in rooms, on doors, and on windows so you’re automatically notified on your smartphone if any disturbances occur. Surveillance cameras can work in tandem with your lighting while you’re away on vacation or for an evening out with friends.
You can program preset lighting scenes, so your home looks inhabited and intruders are deterred. While you’re at home, ensure pathways are well-lit and safe. Smart locks and doorbells are also available; you can monitor who rang your doorbell, communicate with them, then easily unlock the door with the tap of a button. Automating your home’s security ensures that you, your family, and your property remain safe at all times.
You can manage your energy consumption by controlling motorized window treatments or a smart thermostat with the tap of a button. Motorized window treatments can work in conjunction with your lighting control or thermostat. In the winter, use natural lighting during the day to warm your home while fewer lights are on. In the summer, close the shades to block out the heat of the sun.
A smart thermostat can automatically turn off or on at predetermined times of the day, meaning you won’t waste energy heating or cooling an empty house while everyone is away at work or school. This also means the home is at a comfortable temperature once you arrive home after a long day at work. If your daily routine changes, you can manage your total home automation system with an app on your phone or a touch panel in your house.
Your audio and video entertainment will rise to new levels with home automation. You can install speakers throughout your home to give your next dinner party a boost or set up a personal jam session with a push of a button. Better yet, transform your home theater with a new wall-mounted 4K television and audio system for a totally immersive experience, then integrate the devices into your total home automation system.
You could integrate voice control as well, pairing your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa digital assistants. You could say, “Alexa, play a movie” and be amazed. Your TV could turn on tuned to Netflix, your lights could dim, and the motorized shades could cover the windows instantaneously. You’d be all set for a relaxing movie night with friends and family in no time, while you’re still in the kitchen making popcorn.
