One of the advantages of choosing a Vivint home security system in Stamford is that you can integrate it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat will make your house the perfect temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your doors. And you won’t accidentally leave the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even larger effect when used in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Stamford that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you leave for work
Along with an evening schedule, you can set your automation parameters to activate when your house is not currently occupied. With the Vivint App, you can secure your living space through one button press. Now you can be sure that every entryway is secured, every light is off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even batten down the garage door via the app if it’s accidentally left up.
You don't need to keep your living space on guard the whole day. Unlatch the doors for returning friends or service folk with the mobile app. Or put your home on alert without even lifting a finger. By setting a geofence around your house, your system powers on every time you roll down the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you come up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed habits has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the doors, change the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to discover that you failed to lock the back door or left the kitchen light on? And once you neglect to do one section of your bedtime checklist, it's easy to neglect it another evening, too. After a while, your forgotten ritual becomes routine.
But you can ensure that your house is set for bedtime every night when you automate your bedtime ritual. Through your Stamford home security system, you can generate templates that set all your tech without you leaving bed. With a press of a screen, you can lock the doors, turn off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and set your security devices. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to touch a button. Designate your automation to turn on at a specific time -- such as 10pm.
