A house that takes care of itself—how great would that be?
With home automation, it’s a reality for an ever-increasing number of Washington, residents. Technology gives you the upper hand on household activities such as home security, entertainment, vacuuming, and adjusting your heating and cooling system.
Home automation can save you time as well as money. Dialing back your thermostat 7 to 10°F for eight hours a day can reduce your energy bills up to 10 percent yearly, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). However, it’s easy to forget to do it.
That’s where smart thermostats come in—they can learn your habits and automatically generate the most efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) cycles for your home needs.
Dr. Cool is pleased to deliver the next generation of home comfort technology to Sumner area households. Call today to learn more about how home automation can benefit you.
What Can I Do With Home Automation?
The short answer is—a lot. Yearly, new devices and add-ons hit the market, so the possibilities are limitless. You can customize the technology to best suit your Washington, home needs.
Here are a few possible uses for home automation:
- Monitor home security cameras
- Control your robot vacuum cleaner
- Track energy and water use
- Adjust lighting, lock doors remotely
- Automatically feed your pets on a set schedule
- Automated alert to authorities during a fire, break-in, or carbon monoxide leak
How Home Automation Operates
This technology utilizes three main components: controllers, actuators, and sensors.
Controllers are the interface you use to monitor and adjust settings. It can be your phone, tablet, or computer. Most systems have an application that you use to adjust the automation components.
Actuators are the components that respond to the controller’s command. For instance, when you lower your lights using your phone (the controller), the actuator sends an electric signal to your lightbulb, telling it to get dimmer.
Sensors monitor movements, light, and temperature. For instance, a motion sensor can allow touch-less hand washing. When configured with a thermostat, it can adjust temperature settings based on when you’re home or away.
