Erie Home Automation Ideas

You have smart speakers, but are they making your life simpler? Most smart devices should help you become efficient and receptive. Here are a couple of Erie home automation tips and tricks to enable your smart devices work for your home.

Tip: Employ Smart Door Locks And Know When Kids Arrive Home From School

If your family is made up of school-aged children, it's good to know when they come home from school. Try this Erie home automation tip to get an mobile notification when they walk into the door. First, install and then set it to text your smart watch and phone when they punch in their personal unlock pin. Then tell them a quick hi through the 2-way talk feature on the indoor security camera.

Trick: Link Your Smart Devices

One of the best things about a smart home security system is integrating all of your smart devices together. For example, don't trouble yourself about locking your property when you leave the house. Instead, use your security mobile app to simply bolt your doors when your mobile device tracks that you left your driveway. You can also set rules where your smart devices come on as soon as your security cameras detect suspicious motion or have your smart lights turn on the exhaust if your smart alarms go off.

Tip: Set Zones For Your Automation Devices

When you’re a homeowner, you get how confusing it is to decode which breaker controls which area of your home when they aren't clearly labeled. It's similar with your smart devices. When setting up your smart cameras, you don't have to be mistaken about which light is left on or which smart camera is tripped. Getting a notification that the primary door has been breached takes the mystery out of trying to figure out, say, a notification that entrance 2 has been broken.

Trick: Secure Your Packages with Home Automation

The theft of delivered parcells may be a common cause of anxiety. But, by adding a doorbell camera with your security system, you can prevent theft. You can program your security system to send you texts when your packages are delivered, then automatically record video if the camera is tripped afterward. You could even command it to trigger your porch light or deploy the 2-way talk feature, so it still looks like you're home.
