It is hard to believe, but it was not that long ago that home automation was just a dream and something you would see conceptually in “the home of tomorrow”. Now you can’t go long or far without hearing about or having your life somehow impacted by home automation. It is so much a part of our lives that many people can’t even remember life without it!
Good things are never contained, and the smart home revolution has made it into the workplace, and our lives and our businesses are better for it. Here are some of the ways we love to use home automation to make business even better.
It is an age-old problem—- the temperature seems to always get set at a temperature that makes someone uncomfortable. Then there is the ongoing daily battle over the thermostat that will have everyone freezing one moment and roasting the next. One of the best things about using automation is that you can set the temperature to reflect the perfect climate under different circumstances.
When the lighting is automation enabled, you can make sure that the lights are on for your arrival, and off when the business is closed for the day. You can even create scenes where only necessary lighting is on during particular hours. If you are worried about whether or not your remembered to run off the lights manually it is no problem. All You need to do is check from your smart phone from anywhere, whether you are a block away or across the country.
With heating, cooling, and electricity constantly running, it can really burden the systems, planet, and your pocket. By automating the workplace, you can make sure that energy usage stays within certain set parameters.
No business is complete without ambient background music. With wifi connected speakers or enabled sound system you have total control. Would you like different moods in different rooms? Not a problem with automation and wifi enabled speakers and sound systems.
Whether you are protecting a small office or a multi-building facility, automated security technology provides the control you need for ultimate security. No matter where you are in the business, you can respond to a security emergency immediately.
Really, the possibilities in automating your workplace are endless, from having the coffee already brewing to the having business ready for action from the moment you walk through the door. And with all the time you save you can reinvest it in learning even more great ways to leverage the power of home automation technologies!
