Prepare for the Holidays With Smart Home Automation

Prepare for the Holidays With Smart Home Automation

Make Sure Your Decatur, IL Property Is Ready for the Big Family Gatherings

The summer is behind us, and that means there’s plenty of family gatherings coming up soon. From most of the major annual holidays to the start of football season, you’re going to spend the latter half of the year either hosting your friends and family, or spending time with them away from your property. Thankfully, smart home automation can help in either case. In this blog, we’ll show you how integrated technology can enhance your gatherings for an easier and more fun holiday season.

Gathering for the Big Game

Football season may have just started, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start cheering on the Bears’ Super Bowl run. But if you’re planning to do it with your current technology, you may be missing out. It’s time to upgrade with a vibrant 4K Ultra HD TV and a Dolby Atmos surround sound system – tech that will make you feel like you’re on the sidelines rather than in the comfort of your own home. Of course, you don’t have to stop there. Integrate video doorbells and smart locks, so you can answer the door without missing a play. As your buddies arrive, or the pizza delivery guy shows up, simply pause the game and answer the door via your smartphone or tablet. When you integrate all of these technologies with a single smart home system, you can do it all from one controller. Once everyone is in place, start up the game again and enjoy!

Heading Out of the House

For some homeowners, the idea of heading out to a relative’s house for the holidays is the perfect way to get everyone together in the same place. But just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from smart home automation solutions. As you head out the door, one touch on your smartphone or tablet will ensure that all of the lights and AV in your home are turned off. You can also trust that each door enabled with a smart lock has been secured. While you’re away, you can keep track of your system with real time updates of your property. Say, for instance, the cleaning person has come over to straighten up while you’re away—you can see when they arrive and when they turn on the lights in the various rooms of the property. When they leave you can remotely make sure all of the technology is off from wherever you are in the world.   Are you ready to enjoy more convenient gatherings of family and friends with a smart home automation system?
