"5 Awesome Ways You Can Take Advantage of Smart Home Technology"
1. Tablet / Smartphone Home Control
Giving you the freedom to roam yet still stay in control of your home.
You can use your tablet/smartphone to take control of any part of the smart home system from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
Now, you no longer have to remember to lower the heating, turn off all the lights, set the alarm or turn off the iron before you leave the house. Using your tablet or smartphone, you can simply connect to your home and carry out all of these actions on the go. No more rushing back home to see if the alarm is set and definitely no more wondering "did I turn off the iron?"
2. Control of the Entire House Technology with a Single Finger...
When you have a home server you will have quick and convenient access to all functions of your home control system from a single location.
With this unit, the graphical control centre is clear and so intuitive to use a child could do it. You can display the control centre interface on any PC/Laptop, tablet, smartphone or wall mounted touch-screen display.
Choosing this device will allow you to:
3. The Ultimate Intruder Deterrent
I can't imagine there would be anything more off putting to a burglar trying to steal your belongings than seeing lots of activity from within your home.
This is where your smart home really comes into it's own with a fantastically unique feature called "presence simulation".
Here's how it works...
You basically go about your day-to-day activities turning on/off the lights, dimming lights, raising/lowering your electric blinds, triggering security lights or amenity lighting as you come up the drive and so on.
As all of this is going on, you can set the system to record these actions ready for play-back on a continuous loop whilst the home is vacant for an extended period of time (i.e. holidays, weekends away, business trips etc.)
This will vastly increase your homes security as it will look like someone is in the whole time you're away!
4. One-touch Controls Make Things Easier for You...
Another advantage you have using home technology is the "Group Control" option.
This allows you to group a set of commands together and allocate them to a single button of a wall-mounted user control.
So for example: A common application for this is to have a "Central Off" button set-up close by the main exit to the house. Doing it this way, when you are about to leave, you can press the button and effectively shut-down your home by turning off all lights and TVs and bringing the temperature down to standby level throughout all rooms.
I think you'll agree this is a real time-saver and far more convenient than running round the house doing everything manually.
5. Situation Specific Room Settings:
At a single touch of a button or by sensor you can call-up your pre-defined settings depending on your mood, current situation or social event.
At Movie time: Turn off main light, dim wall lights by 50%, close blinds and set heating to comfort mode all at the touch of a single button. Ideal for those cosy moments in front of the TV.
When Entertaining friends: How about just the right ambient lighting and some suitable music playing in the background. Again, all done at the touch of a button.
During the night: For sleepwalkers and late night fridge-raiders, during twilight hours sensors will detect your movement and, with reduced light levels, highlight your path like the emergency cabin lights on a plane.
Also, a special control function can take command of things and switch the lights off for you when your back in bed saving you the bother.
