You may have heard about smart home automation or seen an automation solution and considered implementing it in your Alpharetta-Milton area home. Before you jump straight into turning your house into a “smart home,” it’s important to have a solid understanding of just what home automation is. In this blog, we define smart home automation and discuss some of the main ways you can enhance your Georgia residence with it.
Smart home automation often means different things to different people, but there are some characteristics that everyone can agree on. At a basic level, automation is the idea of using technology to streamline certain processes so that no manual effort is needed.
Automation is a part of everyday life, but home automation goes one step further than the automatic door at your grocery store. Home automation specifically refers to the devices throughout your home that automate everyday processes, from garage door openers to coffee pots that are programmed to brew every morning. Even this is still accepted as the norm for everyday life, but what’s the next level of automation?
Smart home automation uses a control system to connect all of the devices throughout your home. The key difference between regular automation and smart home automation is that this system operates intelligently, giving you added convenience, comfort, and time and energy savings. For example, instead of simply having a sensor that turns the lights on when you enter a room, a smart home automation system can identify when the sun outside offers enough light to illuminate the room. The system will then automatically raise the shades and dim the indoor lighting to save money on electricity.
