One of the advantages of choosing a Vivint home security system in Joplin is that you can pair it with home automation. Components such as a smart thermostat will make your house the perfect temperature and eco-conscious. Smart locks empower you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t leave the garage door up again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these gadgets are on their own, they can have an even more significant effect when employed in tandem with your security system. Here are just 5 incredible home automation ideas for Joplin that will make your house much more responsive to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you leave for work
Along with a before bed schedule, you can set your automation parameters to activate when your home is empty. With your Vivint App, you can secure your house through one button press. Now you can be sure that every entryway is secure, every light is off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on watch. You can even shut the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it open.
You don't have to keep your house locked up the entire day. Unlock the doors for incoming visitors or service workers through the mobile app. Or place your home on alert without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your property, your system powers on each time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home to bed
Your before bed habits has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the doors, adjust the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you neglected to lock the back door or left the living room light on? And after you fail to do one section of your nightly checklist, it's simple to overlook it another evening, as well. Before you know it, your neglected ritual becomes a habit in its own right.
But you can ensure that your home is set for bedtime every evening when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Joplin home security system, you can craft scenarios that adjust all your devices without you leaving bed. With a press of a screen, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, change the thermostat, and set your alarm. Or don't fret about not remembering to touch a button. Designate your automation to trigger at a predetermined time -- like 10pm.
