There are many reasons why making your home a smart one is worth it. Here are five of the best.
1. Energy efficiency
In 2020, with so many of us working from home, there has never been a better time to be mindful of spiralling energy costs. Smart lightbulbs use less power, last longer and can be added to a pre-programmed schedule or sensor for better efficiency. And better efficiency means more moolah in your pocket!
Making your home safer can be as simple as having a lightbulb automated to switch on and off to deter intruders. Additionally, you can opt for an entire security camera system for complete peace of mind – at a fraction of the price an electrician would charge to install one.
3. Ease of living
Automating domestic chores can only be a good thing, right? Take a robot vacuum cleaner for instance. Let it map out your house and hit start just as you close the door for the day, and then return to a vacuumed home. Some of them can even mop, too.
4. Entertain me!
If you enjoy your films, TV, games and music, then there’s a lot you can do in this area with lighting to enhance your experience (more on this later). Smart speakers enable you to select music choices without having to leave your seat.
5. Control freak
Your mobile phone is essentially a remote control for the smart home. No matter where you are, if you can connect to the internet, you can control your smart home. Lights, cameras, music – it’s all at your fingertips.
