One of the advantages of installing a Vivint home security system in Green Bay is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat can make your living space the perfect temperature and energy-efficient. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your doors. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these devices are alone, they can have an even larger effect when used in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Green Bay that will make your living space much more attuned to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you go for work
Along with an evening procedure, you can designate your automation rules to activate when your house is empty. With the Vivint App, you can protect your living space through an easy button tap. Now you can ensure that every entryway is secured, every light is off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are on watch. You can even batten down the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left up.
You don't have to keep your house locked up the entire day. Unlock the doors for incoming visitors or service folk through the smartphone app. Or set your home on lockdown without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your home, your network of devices powers on every time you roll down the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your bedtime schedule has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the front door, adjust the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to find that you failed to lock the back door or left the kitchen light on? And after you fail to do one thing on your evening checklist, it's easy to neglect it the next night, too. Before you know it, your neglected ritual becomes a habit on its own.
But you can ensure that your living space is prepared for bedtime every evening when you automate your bedtime routine. Through your Green Bay home security system, you can craft templates that set all your devices without you going around the house. With a press of a button, you can lock the doors, turn off the lights, change the thermostat, and arm your security system. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to touch a button. Set your automation to turn on at a predetermined time -- such as 11pm.
