One of the advantages of installing a Vivint home security system in Roanoke is that you can sync it with home automation. Components such as a smart thermostat will make your living space more comfortable and eco-friendly. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your doorways. And you won’t leave the garage door wide open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even larger effect when employed in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Roanoke that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you go for work
Along with an evening routine, you can set your automation parameters to activate when your house is vacant. With your Vivint App, you can protect your house with one button tap. Now you can be sure that every entryway is locked, every light is turned off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are activated. You can even close the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left open.
You don't need to keep your home locked up the entire day. Open the doors for incoming visitors or service professionals with the smartphone app. Or set your home on alert without even looking at your phone. By installing a geofence around your home, your network of devices powers on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you come up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your before bed schedule has become routine: turn off all the lights, lock the doors, adjust the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how often have you woken up to find that you failed to lock the back door or left the living room light on? And once you neglect to do one part of your evening routine, it's simple to neglect it the next night, as well. After a while, your neglected ritual becomes a habit in its own right.
But you can guarantee that your house is set for bedtime every night when you automate your bedtime program. Through your Roanoke home security system, you can craft rules that adjust all your devices without you going around the house. With a press of a screen, you can secure the doors, turn off the lights, change the thermostat, and activate your security system. Or don't worry about forgetting to touch a button. Designate your automation to turn on at a specific time -- such as 10pm.
