One of the perks of choosing a Vivint home security system in Logan is that you can integrate it with home automation. Devices like a smart thermostat can make your living space the perfect temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks allow you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again with your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these gadgets are alone, they can have an even larger impact when used together with your home security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Logan that will make your living space much more attuned to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on the defensive when you travel for work
Along with an evening procedure, you can designate your automation systems to activate when your house is empty. With the Vivint App, you can secure your living space through an easy button touch. Now you can be sure that every entryway is locked, every light is no longer on, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even shut the garage door through the app if you accidentally left it open.
You don't need to keep your home locked up the whole day. Unlatch the doors for incoming visitors or service folk via the smartphone app. Or set your home on lockdown without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your home, your network of devices powers on every time you roll down the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your nighttime ritual has become routine: turn off the lights, lock the doors, change the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how often have you woken up to discover that you neglected to lock the side door or left the living room light on? And after you neglect to do one thing on your nightly routine, it's easy to forget it another time, as well. After a while, your neglected ritual becomes routine on its own.
But you can guarantee that your home is set for bedtime every night when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Logan home security system, you can create rules that fine-tune all your gadgets without you traveling room to room. With a press of a screen, you can lock the doors, shut off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and arm your alarm. Or don't agonize about not remembering to hit a button. Set your automation to turn on at a specific time -- like 11pm.
