If you’re a technologically savvy consumer, consider the benefits of home automation.

While home automation is one of the fastest growing trends in modern technology, many people still have a limited knowledge as to what the “smart home” craze is all about. Fundamentally, home automation integrates all of a home’s electronic systems—from lighting and HVAC to security and audio/video—and gives the homeowner control of each from a single source (computer, smartphone, iPad). It may sound like an exercise in high-tech vanity to some, but home automation is far more than gadgetry for gadgetry’s sake.
 
In addition to improved functionality, automation significantly increases the convenience of life at home. By allowing homeowners to control various systems from a single remote source, automation makes maintaining a home as simple as pressing a button. Due to its characteristic ease, home automation can be particularly beneficial for elderly or disabled people who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.
 
Home automation can also improve safety by integrating control of your home security system, including door locks, burglar alarms and security cameras. In addition to letting you lock or unlock doors remotely (as well as check on your property while you’re out of town), automation can link your home security alarm to your smartphone and immediately alert you of an unexpected entry.
 
You can also improve your energy efficiency through home automation. Whether dimming the lights throughout your house, maintaining indoor temperatures or simultaneously adjusting several window shades, automation enables you to regulate your home’s total energy output from a single source, resulting in more efficient operation.
 
According to Ryan Lyeth, owner of Lavish Theaters in Hillsborough, the principal goal of home automation is to create an improved lifestyle for homeowners. “It’s not just the fact that you can control your window shades from your iPad; it’s about maximizing the functionality, safety and comfort of your home, as well as the quality of your life,” he says. “You don’t have to be a home systems expert or an iPad fanatic to enjoy the benefits of automation—it’s simple and easy.”
