One of the benefits of buying a Vivint home security system in Lake Havasu is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat can make your house the perfect temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks grant you the power to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even more significant impact when employed together with your home security system. Here are just 5 incredible home automation ideas for Lake Havasu that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you leave for work
Along with a bedtime schedule, you can designate your automation systems to arm when your home is empty. With the Vivint App, you can defend your house with one button press. Now you can ensure that every door is secure, every light is no longer on, the alarms are set, and your cameras are on duty. You can even shut the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it up.
You don't have to keep your home locked up the entire day. Unlatch the doors for incoming visitors or service workers via the smartphone app. Or place your home on lockdown without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your house, your system arms every time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for bed
Your before bed schedule has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the door, adjust the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you failed to lock the side door or left the kitchen light burning? And after you fail to do one part of your nightly routine, it's easy to neglect it another night, as well. Before you know it, your forgotten regimen becomes commonplace on its own.
But you can ensure that your living space is prepared for bedtime every night when you automate your bedtime routine. Through your Lake Havasu home security system, you can craft scenarios that adjust all your devices without you traveling room to room. With a tap of a screen, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, lower the thermostat, and set your alarm. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to hit a button. Program your automation to turn on at a predetermined time -- like 11pm.
