Our culture has always been obsessed with gadgets. There’s no better place to witness this phenomena than movies and television. Think back to the days of The Jetsons, Back to the Future, the James Bond movies…everyone watched in envy of futuristic gadgets–capable of doing what we could only dream of. Now? Those gadgets are here. They are used everyday in our homes, our cars–throughout our lives. Home automation is the culmination of this obsession we have with gadgets, but it’s only going to make our lives more convenient. If you’re considering home automation, check out these five ways it’ll change your life…for the better.
#1 It’s Multitasking Made Easy.
Killing two birds with one stone, right? Items that can do more than one thing for your life have been on the rise for decades. I remember the first time I got an alarm clock that could not only tell the time, but it could be set to play music to wake me up. I thought I had reached the pinnacle of technology. Now, home automation lets you control elements of your home in one place. It’s control like you’ve never had before. Hunter Douglas has partnered with some of the biggest names in home integration systems to give you a flawless life experience.
#2 It Brings Money Saving, Energy Efficiency.
How many times have you thought to yourself… “Ugh! I forgot to turn the lights off!” after leaving home for the day? What about neglecting to adjust the thermostat before leaving on vacation? It’s happened to all of us more times than we’d like to admit. With home automation, you choose the elements of your home that you’d like to control–from anywhere in the world. Touch of a button control means with one swipe, you can save money. You can easily save settings and adjust schedules–making your home function as efficiently as possible. So whether it’s the touch of a button to close your shades on the hottest day of the year, or checking your thermostat–in case someone else in your home adjusted it–you’ve got this!
#3 It’s the Two Way Relationship You’ve Always Wanted.
Do you know that with PowerView motorization, your shades will talk to you? Well, you won’t necessarily have a heart-to-heart conversation with them, but it’s exactly the type of communication you’ve always wanted. The PowerView app communicates clearly so there is an understanding between you and your motorized shades. Did it get super hot today, when it was supposed to be mild? Check your app to see what state your shades are in. Are they down? Are they halfway up? The app will communicate so you know exactly what is going on. And then, you can make changes that will benefit your home.
#4 It’s Peace of Mind Dreams Are Made Of.
Peace of mind means that you can rest easy knowing that you’ve got control. Privacy, security, energy efficiency…the list goes on. Home automation allows you touch of a button control whether you’re at home or not. Wondering how Fluffy is handling being home alone on a Monday? Take a peek with a security camera. Curious if your significant other left the house without closing the shades? You can easily check with the PowerView app. Feeling nervous about whether you forgot to lock the doors? Home automation gives you the peace of mind you need.
#5 Let’s Face It–It’s Like Having a Personal Assistant.
How many times a day do you feel like you could use a personal assistant? If you’re like most people, it’s a lot. Life is busy, chaotic, full of a never-ending ‘to do’ list. Home automation takes a great deal of little tasks, that add up to a great deal of responsibility, and simply takes care of them for you. What seemed like such a futuristic, what-dreams-are-made-of, fun experience has now become the smartest way to live.
