The Future Is Now: Home Automation

Our homes, whose sole purpose at one time was to simply protect us from the elements, are well on their way to becoming “living,” smart devices that learn our habits and adjust the environment around us accordingly. Home automation is the now, and there are an unbelievable amount of ways to tap into this technology and lead your home into the future.

Smart Lighting

A smart lighting system gives a homeowner the ability to experience their home “in a different light.” WiFi-enabled, LED light bulbs can be controlled to turn on/off, dim, or even change colors instantly all from your phone, tablet, or computer. Some lighting control systems can even detect when someone enters or leaves a room, or can be programmed for different time cycles based around your daily needs. Having access to every aspect of your home’s lighting may only seem like a luxury, but your utility bill will reap the benefits.

WiFi Thermostat

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) account for most of your home’s electricity use. Unless you have a fairly new system, you’re constantly making trips back and forth to the thermostat to maintain a comfortable – and affordable – temperature, or leaving it at a preferred setting regardless of the consequences. The evolution of the thermostat has made it possible to put this madness behind you. In an automated home, your thermostat remembers what you set it to and when you set it, and after a short time, builds a personalized schedule. Just like with smart lighting, you can also control it from your mobile device, even when you’re not home.

Automating Your Home

Everything, from appliances to the lock on your front door, has the ability to be connected to and controlled via the Internet. Typically, a hub is installed in your home that allows you to manage all of these amenities in a centralized location. Not only will this help your house run more efficiently, but it adds tremendous resale value.

As this trend in home automation continuously evolves, Mister Sparky aims to be right there with it, staying up-to-date on the latest technologies to be able to help you with every question, concern, installation, and fix. If you’re looking to upgrade your lighting, HVAC, appliances, or security system to an automated setup, be sure to have one of our highly knowledgeable, certified electricians install it the right way.
