One of the perks of installing a Vivint home security system in Morgantown is that you can pair it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat can make your home the ideal temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your doorways. And you won’t accidentally leave the garage door wide open again with your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these gadgets are alone, they can have an even greater effect when used together with your security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Morgantown that will make your living space much more attuned to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you travel for work
Along with a before bed schedule, you can designate your automation parameters to set when your house is empty. With the Vivint App, you can secure your living space with an easy button tap. Now you can be sure that every door is locked, every light is off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even shut the garage door through the app if it’s accidentally left wide open.
You don't have to keep your house locked up the entire day. Unlock the doors for returning friends or service folk through the smartphone app. Or place your home on alert without even looking at your phone. By installing a geofence around your property, your system turns on each time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your bedtime schedule has become routine: turn off the lights, lock the front door, adjust the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you failed to lock the back door or left the living room light burning? And after you fail to do one section of your nightly routine, it's simple to forget it the next night, as well. Without realizing it, your neglected regimen becomes a habit.
But you can ensure that your home is set for bedtime every night when you automate your nighttime program. Through your Morgantown home security system, you can craft scenarios that fine-tune all your gadgets without you going around the house. With a touch of a screen, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and arm your security system. Or don't worry about not remembering to touch a button. Set your automation to activate at a specific time -- such as midnight.
