One of the perks of buying a Vivint home security system in Saginaw is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat should make your house more comfortable and eco-conscious. Smart locks empower you to remote control your doors. And you won’t leave the garage door open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these tools are on their own, they can have an even greater impact when used in tandem with your security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Saginaw that will make your living space much more attuned to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you go for work
Along with a bedtime procedure, you can program your automation rules to set when your house is empty. With your Vivint App, you can protect your house with a single button press. Now you can ensure that every door is secure, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are activated. You can even shut the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left wide open.
You don't need to keep your living space locked up the entire day. Open the doors for out-of-town friends or service folk with the smartphone app. Or set your house on guard without even looking at your phone. By placing a geofence around your house, your network of devices powers on each time you roll down the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your nighttime schedule has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the doors, set the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to discover that you failed to lock the front door or left the bathroom light burning? And after you fail to do one section of your evening checklist, it's easy to forget it another evening, too. Without realizing it, your neglected checklist becomes routine in its own right.
But you can guarantee that your house is set for bed every night when you automate your nighttime routine. Through your Saginaw home security system, you can create templates that adjust all your devices without you going around the house. With a touch of a button, you can secure the doors, turn off the lights, change the thermostat, and set your security devices. Or don't worry about forgetting to press a button. Designate your automation to activate at a set time -- like 11pm.
