One of the perks of choosing a Vivint home security system in Bozeman is that you can integrate it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat should make your house more comfortable and eco-conscious. Smart locks empower you to remote control your doors. And you’ll never leave the garage door open again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these devices are alone, they can have an even greater impact when utilized in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Bozeman that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you leave for work
Along with a bedtime routine, you can designate your automation parameters to arm when your home is vacant. With your Vivint App, you can secure your living space with a single button touch. Now you can ensure that every door is locked, every light is off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are on watch. You can even close the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left wide open.
You don't need to keep your house locked up the whole day. Open the doors for out-of-town family or service workers with the smartphone app. Or set your house on guard without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your property, your network of devices arms each time you roll down the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed habits has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the front door, set the thermostat, and prepare your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you forgot to lock the back door or left the bathroom light on? And after you neglect to do one section of your bedtime checklist, it's easy to overlook it the next night, too. Without realizing it, your forgotten regimen becomes routine.
But you can guarantee that your house is set for bed every night when you automate your nighttime program. Through your Bozeman home security system, you can create rules that adjust all your tech without you leaving bed. With a tap of a screen, you can secure the doors, power off the lights, adjust the thermostat, and arm your alarm. Or don't fret about forgetting to press a button. Program your automation to activate at a predetermined time -- like midnight.
