What is Automation?

At 6:00 am, your heat turns on and warms the house to a comfortable level. At 6:30 am your bedroom shades open and a soothing voice bids you good morning. As you roll out of bed, last night’s headlines and sports scores are read to you along with today’s weather forecast. The bathroom lights flip on. As you climb into the shower, the coffee begins to brew downstairs. Another day begins…

Think of all the repetitive things you do in your home every day. Turn lights on, turn lights off, set thermostat up, set thermostat down, arm the security system, disarm the security system, water the lawn, etc… Now add to this all the things you have to remember to do. Pay the bills, change your oil, take your medication, pick the kids up from soccer, get the car inspected, etc… Wouldn’t it be great if you had a little help with all this? That’s what home automation is all about.

Albert Einstein minimized his wardrobe to avoid wasting time thinking about what to wear. Simplifying his life gave him more time and energy to focus on his work. Home automation works the same way. It simplifies your life by shifting the more mundane and tedious tasks from you to your home. With a ‘smarter’ home, you can focus more of your time and energy on the people and things that matter most to you.
