One of the perks of buying a Vivint home security system in Bowling Green is that you can pair it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat will make your living space the perfect temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks empower you to remote control your doorways. And you’ll never leave the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these tools are on their own, they can have an even greater impact when employed in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Bowling Green that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you leave for work
Along with a bedtime schedule, you can program your automation systems to activate when your house is not currently occupied. With the Vivint App, you can protect your home through one button touch. Now you can guarantee that every door is secure, every light is turned off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are activated. You can even shut the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it up.
You don't have to keep your living space on alert the whole day. Open the doors for returning friends or service folk through the smartphone app. Or set your house on alert without even pushing a button. By setting a geofence around your house, your system powers on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed habits has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the front door, adjust the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how often have you woken up to discover that you failed to lock the front door or left the bathroom light burning? And once you fail to do one thing on your bedtime checklist, it's easy to neglect it the next night, as well. After a while, your neglected regimen becomes routine in its own right.
But you can make sure that your home is set for bedtime every evening when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Bowling Green home security system, you can generate scenarios that set all your tech without you leaving bed. With a touch of a button, you can secure the doors, shut off the lights, lower the thermostat, and set your alarm. Or don't worry about failing to remember to press a button. Designate your automation to activate at a set time -- like 11pm.
