Smart devices have been invading homes for quite a few years now, slowly trickling into home appliances. If you were to count up the devices in your home, you might not have realized how many smart devices you really have!
If you’re looking into home automation, it may seem excessive to have light bulbs that you can control from your phone, or to have a voice-controlled audio system. However, think about how dependent we all are on our smartphones nowadays. It’s hard to picture a time where we didn’t rely on our cell phones to get directions or order items online. According to the Pew Research Center 2016 survey, roughly 3 quarters of Americans (that’s 77%) own smartphones! Those numbers are only progressing from there.
Not only will you impress your guests with smart controlled, color-changing and dimming lights, you’ll be saving money. Timing-based automated technologies, such as lighting control, can be optimized on a schedule. For instance, lights can be set to turn on when and where you need them. There are other automation options that can be controlled from your phone, such as controlling the temperature of your home when you’re away. With automated technologies, you’re not only in charge of the comfort and style of your home, you are in control of energy and electric costs.
