If you’re thinking about investing in smart home automation but you have yet to take the plunge, below are just a few of the latest stats that might help you make a decision.
- Smart home automation is convenient. Imagine the convenience of being able to control your lights, thermostat, or coffee maker without needing to get out of bed. If you prefer to get up at the crack of dawn, you can turn your kitchen and living room lights on before your feet hit the floor. You can even control your pool’s solar powered cleaning robot from anywhere that you have an Internet connection. The list of things you can accomplish with smart home automation is vast.

- Smart homes can save you money. We all know someone who went on an extended vacation only to arrive home to find they left their AC set to “arctic chill” the entire time they were gone. When you opt for smart home automation, you never need to worry about overpaying for heating and cooling while you’re out of town. Why? Because you can check the status (and temperature) of your HVAC system from anywhere. Additionally, if you plan to be out of town for a couple days (or you’re wanting to head to the beach), you can turn the temperature in your home up with the simple press of a button. In contrast, you can turn the temperature back down a few degrees as you make your way home.
- They provide added security. When you opt for a smart lock, you’ll be notified, in real time, about who is entering and exiting your apartment. For example, if you’re traveling for a few days and you need to have a dog sitter stay at your home to look after Fido, you’ll know when they arrive, when they depart, and you’ll know exactly when (and how long) they’re leaving your home to walk your fur child. If you opt for a smart security system, you can get real-time motion detector alerts. This can allow you to monitor your home remotely— so you can determine if a wayward animal knocked over your trash cans, or if the motion sensor was set off by a potential intruder.
