One of the advantages of buying a Vivint home security system in Jefferson City is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices like a smart thermostat can make your house more comfortable and energy-efficient. Smart locks empower you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t leave the garage door wide open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even more significant impact when used in tandem with your security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Jefferson City that will make your living space much more responsive to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you travel for work
Along with an evening routine, you can designate your automation parameters to activate when your house is empty. With the Vivint App, you can protect your living space with one button press. Now you can guarantee that every door is secure, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even shut the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left open.
You don't need to keep your living space on alert the whole day. Unlatch the doors for returning friends or service folk through the smartphone app. Or set your house on lockdown without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your house, your network of devices turns on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms switch off, and your doors unlock when you come up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your before bed ritual has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the doors, adjust the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you neglected to lock the back door or left the kitchen light burning? And once you fail to do one section of your nightly routine, it's easy to forget it the next time, as well. Without realizing it, your forgotten regimen becomes a habit in its own right.
But you can make sure that your house is ready for bed every night when you automate your bedtime program. Through your Jefferson City home security system, you can generate scenarios that adjust all your tech without you going around the house. With a press of a screen, you can secure the doors, turn off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and set your security devices. Or don't worry about not remembering to press a button. Designate your automation to trigger at a set time -- like 10pm.
