One of the advantages of installing a Vivint home security system in Jamestown is that you can integrate it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat can make your living space the perfect temperature and energy-efficient. Smart locks empower you to remote control your doorways. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these devices are by themselves, they can have an even greater impact when utilized together with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Jamestown that will make your house much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on the defensive when you go for work
Along with an evening routine, you can set your automation rules to arm when your house is vacant. With the Vivint App, you can defend your living space through a single button tap. Now you can be sure that every entryway is secured, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even close the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it open.
You don't have to keep your living space on guard the entire day. Open the doors for incoming friends or service workers through the mobile app. Or set your house on alert without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your home, your system powers on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms switch off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed ritual has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the door, change the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how often have you woken up to discover that you failed to lock the back door or left the kitchen light on? And once you fail to do one thing on your evening checklist, it's easy to neglect it the next night, as well. Before you know it, your neglected ritual becomes routine.
But you can ensure that your living space is set for bedtime every night when you automate your nighttime routine. Through your Jamestown home security system, you can generate rules that fine-tune all your gadgets without you leaving bed. With a press of a button, you can secure the doors, power off the lights, change the thermostat, and set your security devices. Or don't fret about not remembering to hit a button. Set your automation to turn on at a set time -- like 11pm.
