One of the perks of buying a Vivint home security system in Wichita is that you can integrate it with home automation. Components such as a smart thermostat can make your house more comfortable and eco-friendly. Smart locks empower you to remote control your doors. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these tools are on their own, they can have an even more significant effect when employed together with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Wichita that will make your home much more attuned to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you go for work
Along with an evening procedure, you can set your automation systems to activate when your house is not currently occupied. With the Vivint App, you can protect your home with a single button touch. Now you can ensure that every entryway is locked, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even close the garage door through the app if you accidentally left it up.
You don't have to keep your home locked up the whole day. Unlatch the doors for out-of-town friends or service workers via the smartphone app. Or set your home on lockdown without even pushing a button. By installing a geofence around your home, your network of devices powers on each time you roll down 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 door, adjust the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to find that you neglected to lock the front door or left the bathroom light on? And after you neglect to do one thing on your bedtime checklist, it's easy to forget it another evening, too. Without realizing it, your forgotten checklist becomes a habit on its own.
But you can ensure that your living space is set for bed every evening when you automate your bedtime program. Through your Wichita home security system, you can generate templates that adjust all your devices without you leaving bed. With a tap of a button, you can secure the doors, power off the lights, change the thermostat, and arm your alarm. Or don't worry about forgetting to touch a button. Program your automation to trigger at a predetermined time -- like 10pm.
