One of the perks of installing a Vivint home security system in Hammond is that you can integrate it with home automation. Items like a smart thermostat will make your living space the perfect temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even more significant effect when employed together with your home security system. Here are just 5 incredible home automation ideas for Hammond that will make your home much more responsive to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you travel for work
Along with a bedtime routine, you can designate your automation parameters to activate when your home is not currently occupied. With your Vivint App, you can protect your home with a single button tap. Now you can guarantee that every door is secured, every light is no longer on, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even shut the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left open.
You don't have to keep your house on guard the whole day. Unlock the doors for returning family or service workers with the mobile app. Or set your home on guard without even lifting a finger. By setting a geofence around your house, your system arms every time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you come 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 before bed schedule has become routine: turn off all the lights, lock the front door, change the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to find that you neglected to lock the front door or left the bathroom light on? And after you neglect to do one part of your bedtime routine, it's simple to forget it the next night, as well. Before you know it, your forgotten ritual becomes commonplace.
But you can guarantee that your living space is set for bed every night when you automate your bedtime ritual. Through your Hammond home security system, you can craft templates that set all your gadgets without you leaving bed. With a tap of a button, you can secure the doors, shut off the lights, lower the thermostat, and arm your security devices. Or don't worry about forgetting to touch a button. Program your automation to trigger at a predetermined time -- such as 11pm.
