Three Ways a Smart House Frees Up Your Schedule
There are a lot of benefits to automating your house with Boulder Mobile Locksmiths, and they revolve around convenience, security, and safety. But once you start automating your thermostat, lights, and entryways, the benefits keep increasing.
How does automation give you more time in your day?
A lot of transition costs happen whenever we enter and exit the house. Locking and unlocking the doors, turning on the lights, getting the thermostat back to the right temperature range… all of these tasks add up, especially if you have to double back and make sure you locked up or make sure the garage door is closed. Here are three ways automation can give you that time back:
Open the door remotely when a repair technician or service provider arrives.
Usually, a repair or installation means having to take a half-day off from work. But with a remotely activated lock, you can wait for the ring at the door when the technician arrives and then let them in from your home or office. Not only does this mean you can monitor the repairs remotely, too, as you continue to work, you don’t waste time waiting.
Double-check your locks and appliances remotely.
There’s almost nothing more frustrating than getting halfway through your commute and then having your brain wonder if you closed the garage or locked the front door. If your home isn’t automated, that means you have to spend all day with the niggling worry or you have to turn around and be late. Automate your house so all you have to do is glance at your phone to double-check and then tap a button to lock or turn off whatever you were worried about.
Set the thermostat on your way home.
The resting temperature of your house doesn’t have to be room temperature. In fact, you can easily keep your home at 55 degrees Fahrenheit when no one’s home without putting anything in your house at risk of being too cold. Get it started on warming up to your preferred temperature on your way home so it can be nice and toasty by the time you arrive.
