As smart home technology becomes more sophisticated and mainstream, many people may become intrigued with smart home automation, but might ask themselves, "Why do I need a smart home?".
At the core of it, smart homes are an interconnected ecosystem of devices including smart lighting, smart thermostats, smart security cameras, smart locks, smart doorbells, and more that can be remotely controlled through a smartphone or a mobile touchscreen device.
Here are five reasons why you need a smart home:
Smart home devices are connected through Wi-Fi and can be remotely controlled through a smartphone or a mobile touchscreen device. This allows you the ability to control and monitor your home, even if you're thousands of miles away! Smart light bulbs can be turned on even while you're away to give the illusion that you never left.
Smart home devices can simply your life and literally "free up your hands", so you can do more of what you love. With voice assistants, such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa, you can ask for the weather, dim the lights, or unlock the front door using just your voice.
Some of your day-to-day tasks can be automated with a smart home device. For example, smart thermostats can learn your daily routine and tailoring heating and cooling cycles to sync with your daily routine.
A smart home security system can provide a better sense of security. Smart doorbells, smart cameras, and smart alarms can be interconnected to allow you to monitor and protect your home even from a distance. Smart doorbells is like having Caller ID for your door and you can see who is at your front door even when you're not home. Smart sensors can provide vital information about the current status of your home, such as detecting water leaks, so you can have a peace of mind.
Smart home devices can monitor and lower energy, heating, and water consumption and reduce your utility bill. Smart thermostats can decrease room temperature when no one is home. Smart sprinklers can adjust the watering schedule depending on moisture levels or weather predictions. Smart outlets can turn idle appliances off remotely.
