Getting Started with Automation
It’s an exciting time in smart home solutions with automation on the rise. New technologies are being conceptualised all the time and are far more readily available than they’ve ever been – gone are the days when home automation was only for the very well-off and brand new houses. Affordable automation is rapidly being added to new and existing homes every day, with no need to rewire. But with this growing market of tech, it can all become a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, we’re here to simplify the whole process for you.
If you’re ready to experience the convenience, peace-of-mind and brilliance of automation, the steps below are great thinking points to start with!
Decide the level of automation you want in your home
Whilst automation has incredible capabilities of integrating numerous technologies into one system, that doesn’t mean you have to add them all to create something amazing. You can add as a little or as much into your home as you wish, so to begin with, choose what you’d like automated first.
Decide what your budget is
The price of automation increases accordingly with the amount of tech you incorporate. So before you go any further, it’s best to decide how much you feel comfortable spending. Thankfully, there are many affordable options out there which can still wow you. As well as this, home automation doesn’t have to all be done at once. Perhaps you could start small with a few lights and speakers automated and then gradually work your way up from there, paying as you go.
Partner your automation to yourself!
Every individual, family and home is different and so the technology that will greatly benefit you may not work so well for your neighbour. Brainstorm ways that automation could simplify your life and choose technology that compliments that. Perhaps you work late and always arrive home in the dark, opt for ‘geofencing’ technology which uses your phone’s location to see when you have arrived home, opens your garage door and turns your lights on for you, adding safety and convenience.
