Summer is over, and the kids are back in school. This means that they can no longer sleep in late and need to get on a regular schedule. Unfortunately, this is incredibly difficult during this school year when most kids are attending school from home. The temptation to sleep in is even more prevalent, but smart home automation can make waking up a little easier. Create a personalized “Wake-Up” scene to get the kids out of bed for their online classes. The bedroom lights will slowly turn on, the shades will open to let in sunlight, and an upbeat music playlist will play on your whole-home audio system. Customize your settings to fit your family's individual needs and relax knowing that your kids will make it to class on time!
The weather is cooling off, which means you will be using your climate control system to warm your home. Unfortunately, this also means that your electricity bill may go up. A smart climate control system will minimize your energy usage to ensure that you are as efficient with your electricity as possible. For example, you can schedule your heater to automatically turn off or lower when no one is home. Motion sensors can be used to detect when a room is empty and will alert your smart thermostat to turn off the heater in that section of the home. When integrated with motorized shades, your home automation system can utilize sunlight to regulate your home's temperature naturally. When a room becomes too cold, instead of automatically turning on your heater, your home automation system will open the shades to allow in sunlight that will warm the room.
