Summer and winter are two seasons that beach and sun lovers or winter sports enthusiast enjoy wholeheartedly. But when it comes to your home, what do these two seasons have in common? High energy consumption produced by cooling or heating installations.
The solution to get rid of these worries is to transform your home into a Smart Home, which, in addition to the security offered to your home, helps to control and reduce energy consumption.
Here are 5 ways to significantly reduce costs :
- Remotely control the devices in your home!
Cooling and heating the home is a big part of the energy bill. Did you leave home and forget the air conditioning on? No problem! You can remotely control its operation from your smart phone. You can also create a lot of scenarios and automations such as turning on the heating when you are on your way home.
2. Cool the house, but don’t throw money out the window when it’s open!
Your smart home gives you the ability to connect the cooling / heating system to the door / window sensors, so when the system detects that you have left a window open, it will decrease the temperature settings to reduce costs and energy loss. When the window is closed, the system will resume the initial settings.
3. No more stand-by devices!
It is not always easy to remember to turn off all electronic devices in your home, and televisions, laptops and other such devices become silent consumers of energy. Get rid of their worries by using smart sockets that will help you stop them when you want, or create rules to stop / start them at will.
4. Automatic lightning!
Power consumption is seriously affected by lighting devices when they are turned on although not needed. With the help of smart bulbs you will be able to control the lights in the house, even if you are at work or on vacation. Also, together with motion or door / window sensors you can create scenarios, such as turning on the lights when you enter a room and turning them off when you leave the room, thus minimizing energy consumption.
5. Smart decision made by your home!
Thanks to innovative technology, smart home systems now incorporate the ability to make decisions for you and your home. For example, you will no longer have to adjust the temperature every day. The sensors can also detect when a room is empty and the air conditioning will turn off automatically. The system will learn your needs and routines so it can make the best decisions for you. Through geolocation technology, your smart home will detect when you return from work and start various scenarios based on these routines, such as turning on the heating, turning on the lights and the TV and much more.
As you can see, smart systems for your home are the best solution for low energy consumption and the lowest possible cost of bills.
The current technology has evolved in such a way as to get rid of the worries of the house and you can enjoy the sunny days at the beach or an excellent ski session!
