4 Most Useful Home Automation Features to Invest in

October 20, 2019

If you are like many homeowners today in Garner, North Carolina, you use home automation to accommodate your busy lifestyle. While many home automation features are convenient, some can make your home safer. With that in mind, let’s explore four features you should look for with a home automation system.

Smart Wireless Thermostats

Control the temperature of your home easily with a smart thermostat. Choose one that has Wi-Fi capabilities so you can adjust the temperature while you are away from home. Smart thermostats can learn the behaviors and routines of the occupants of the house. Also, smart thermostats can integrate with your home’s HVAC system to control the temperature.

Smart Security Systems

Security for your home and family is paramount. Keep an eye on your home with automated security systems. Some of our Trane-connected thermostats link with the Nexia Home Intelligence security system so you can view the interior or exterior of your home via a live feed. With a Nexia phone app (which is compatible with all phone operating systems), you can also remotely control door and window locks, as well as garage doors.

Smart Lighting

With smart lighting, you can easily control the lights whether you are home or not. You can control lighting remotely with the app on your mobile device. While you are in your home, use your home’s voice-controlled automation device.

Smart Bathrooms

Imagine coming home to a bathtub that is already filled with water at the perfect temperature. Alternatively, imagine using an easy-to-use touchscreen mounted near your shower that you can use to set the water pressure, temperature, and determine the duration of your shower. With a smart bathroom, you can have sensors within a toilet automatically lift and close the lid or turn on soft lights so you can see where you are going in the middle of the night.
