Clean, Green and Smart
Many think the best way to reduce your energy consumption is by cutting your morning showers short. Now with home automation there are many smart ways to reduce your energy consumption without changing the way you live.
Smart lighting is not only beautiful, it is also energy efficient. Lighting can be programmed to turn on when you enter the a room and turn back off when you leave. Light can also be automated to turn on and off at different times; with outdoor security lights turning on in the evening and back off in the morning.
Heat your entire home without having to worry about the power bill. Using timers for heating ensures you always wake up and arrive home to a warm home, and don't have these running while you are out. Temperature controls can also be used to have different heating turn on automatically when it is a certain temperature, and turn off once it has reached a specific temperature.
This is not just limited to heating inside your home. Integrate your pool and spa heating and outdoor sprinklers. This will reduce energy consumption and takes out the hassle for homeowners.
Solar Energy is a great renewable way of generating energy for your home. Solar panels can be integrated into your home to collect and store energy. Many homes have seen the benefit of this investment by significantly reducing their carbon footprint and energy bills.
Remotely control your home
One of the largest contribution to your power bill is leaving lighting or devices running while they are not in use. A 'away' or 'goodnight' setting gives you the ability to turn off all the devices and lighting in your home with a single touch. If you are out, you can remotely activate these settings from your smart device.
