Advantages of having a Smart Home
Maybe you’ve heard of smart home automation before but you are not sure whether it is for you or not. Let me tell you, if you choose the right system there are no disadvantages. But what is so good about it? And does it really make your life easier or even better?
There are a million things we have to remember and worry about in our busy, daily lives.
Have you ever had to head back home during rush hour to check on your alarm as you simply could not remember whether you had turned it on or not? What about that feeling in your gut that you may have left the heating on or even all the lights in the house?
Having the ability to turn your house alarm on and check if the heating and lights are turned off from your phone, while you are already at work is one of the most convenient and time saving options.
Imagine coming home to a nice warm house on a cold, rainy day because you can turn your heating on before you get there? Or telling the post man from your phone to leave your parcel next to the gate while you are in the shower?
All of that and more is possible when your house is automated and all your devices can be managed from one place. More so, you can personalise your Tydom by setting personalised scenarios. For example if you wake up at 7am program your blinds to open and your heating to turn on at the same time. Set your lights to switch off and your house alarm to turn on from Monday to Friday at 8.30 when you leave for work.
Every 40 seconds a house is broken into in the UK. With burglary rates increasing steadily people feel more and more unsafe in their own homes and are worried about leaving their loved ones at home alone. Imagine being able to see who is at your front door, before actually opening it. No more feeling nervous leaving your house when you go on holiday. Get notified instantly when someone goes anywhere near your precious car or bike parked in your driveway.
Sounds great doesn’t it? Smart home technology allows you to maximize your home security by combining the functions of motion detectors, surveillance cameras, automated door locks and other security devices throughout your home to give you the best protection.
Activate your system from your phone, monitor activities and receive security alerts in real-time from anywhere in the world, all you need is an internet connection! To get started with this check out the Tyxal + starter pack or contact us for a FREE no obligation consultation.
