5 Reasons Why You Should Make Your Home a Smart Home

5 Reasons to Make Your Home a Smart Home

Creating a smart home can bring your residential property firmly into 2023 and futureproof it for years to come. What are the benefits of making your home a smart home? They are almost limitless. Generally speaking, they give you instant access and control over every aspect of your home, even if you aren’t there, by using an app. Using Control4 technology, EAV can integrate the technology in your home through one central control system giving you the ability to monitor and control lighting, heating, blinds and more via your smartphone or device. Here are five reasons why you should consider making your home a smart home.

  1. Increased convenience: With a smart home, you can control various aspects of your home from anywhere, at any time. For example, you can turn off lights or adjust the thermostat from your office or even when you're away on vacation. This means you'll never have to worry about leaving lights on or coming home to a cold house again. 
  2. Energy savings: Smart home technology allows you to monitor and control your energy usage, which can help you save money on your utility bills. Forgot to turn the heat pump off? Do it remotely. Want to close your blinds to keep the heat out and reduce the need for aircon? Adjust them from your smartphone.
  3. Improved security: Smart home technology can help to improve the security of your home. For example, you can install smart cameras that allow you to check in on your home while you're away, or you can set up alerts that notify you if there's any suspicious activity.
  4. More comfortable environment: A smart home is a comfortable home. Create a tailored living environment based on your preferences. For example, you can program your smart lights to turn on before you arrive home each day and schedule them to dim an hour before bedtime. Schedule the heating or aircon to turn off a few minutes before you wake up in the morning, so you're never too cold or too hot.
  5. Integration: Perhaps the best aspect of smart home technology is the ability to integrate all your technology such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Apple HomePod, which means you can control your smart devices with your voice commands, or even with other smart devices you already own.
