One of the perks of buying a Vivint home security system in Trenton is that you can integrate it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat can make your living space the perfect temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks allow you to remote control your doors. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these devices are on their own, they can have an even more significant effect when utilized together with your home security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Trenton that will make your living space much more responsive to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you leave for work
Along with a before bed schedule, you can set your automation parameters to arm when your home is empty. With the Vivint App, you can secure your living space with a single button tap. Now you can be sure that every entryway is secured, every light is off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are on duty. You can even shut the garage door via the app if it’s accidentally left up.
You don't have to keep your living space on alert the entire day. Open the doors for incoming family or service folk via the smartphone app. Or set your home on alert without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your property, your network of devices arms each time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you drive 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 door, adjust the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to find that you neglected to lock the front door or left the bathroom light burning? And after you fail to do one part of your bedtime routine, it's simple to forget it another time, as well. Before you know it, your neglected checklist becomes commonplace.
But you can guarantee that your living space is prepared for bed every evening when you automate your bedtime ritual. Through your Trenton home security system, you can craft templates that set all your tech without you going around the house. With a touch of a button, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, lower the thermostat, and arm your security devices. Or don't worry about forgetting to press a button. Program your automation to trigger at a specific time -- such as 10pm.
