Smart Home Automation for Security and Energy Savings
Home automation is one of the most exciting technology trends today. With more than 2,000 smart devices on the market, there’s virtually no limit to the possibilities. Check out some of the ways that home automation systems can simplify your life.
- Heating and Cooling: Smart thermostats can lower your heating and cooling bills by 10 percent. These connected devices learn your preferred settings and adjust the temperature automatically.
- Security: Protect your family and monitor your property when you’re away from home using connected locks, surveillance cameras, door or window sensors and leak detectors.

Home Automation Basics
Whether you’re interested in full integration or just the essentials, you’ll need an automation bridge and at least one connected device, sensor, or smart appliance. As part of the Internet of Things, home automation systems rely on short-range wireless mesh technology like Z-Wave that allows connected devices to communicate with one another as well as a main control panel. Depending on your goals, you can purchase a standalone bridge, or you can use a connected thermostat as your command center. Either way, you can manage all of your connected devices from your smartphone or using a voice-activated assistant like Alexa.
