Home automation has become incredibly popular in the past decade. The market is estimated to grow by 13% year over year until 2025, with total market revenue of $46.80 billion USB in 2017. By using a combination of networking hardware, software, and electronic devices, home automation, or “the smart home”, is designed to make your life simpler and more convenient.
It’s the morning and your alarm goes off to indicate it’s time to wake up. At that exact moment:
All of this happens before you even get out of bed. That’s life with home automation.
Home automation isn’t about linking a bunch of gadgets to do complicated and random tasks – true home automation is about creating a seamless living experience to simplify your life. The devices are not pieced together haphazardly. They are integrated intelligently into your home and talk to each other to make sure they are all on the same page.
They can be displayed proudly throughout your home, or discreetly hidden so nobody would ever know they were there working hard behind the scenes.
Savant offers a wide variety of home automation products, including devices from other manufacturers that are considered part of the Smart Series. These products integrate nicely with Savant and can be completely controlled from within Savant’s ecosystem.
While Savant is generally on the higher-end when compared to other smart-home products such as Nest, Savant provides a higher tier of integration for a more cohesive and intelligent experience.
From home security to comfort to entertainment, home automation is a revolutionary new way to improve quality of life. It’s a new way of living.
Here are some of the ways that you can control your home at the touch of a button.
Another scenario: you’ve left the house on a road trip and an hour into the drive you can’t remember whether you left the garage door open or not.
Conventionally, you may have to turn back or phone a neighbour to check on it.
With home automation, you can check right from your mobile device and close it remotely. Or better yet, you can have your house alert you when you leave a certain radius and close the garage door for you. Simple. Convenient.
Savant’s automation system integrates tightly with other elements of your home: your door locks, garage door, alarm system. All of these devices talk to each other and keep you informed of what’s going on at your home.
Some things you can do with a system like this:
Smart thermostats have been around for some time. They automatically adjust your room temperature to keep it consistent throughout the day.
But what if you wanted to take it a step further? What if you wanted your thermostat to adjust when you’re not home to conserve energy? Or you wanted your thermostat to control the temperature in a room only when it’s occupied?
With Savant, you can set up your home system to be tailored to your specific needs. It can also be controlled entirely from a mobile device, so you don’t even need to be home.
Improved bathroom technology also lets you control shower temperatures for different people in the household. The shower can be turned on remotely and the water set at the perfect temperature before you even get in.
Preset scenes are arguably one of the most used features of home automation. Connecting your TV with your light and sound system to create a simple, automated experience is one of the highlights of the smart home. This includes condensing 17 remotes into one, easy-to-use remote control by Savant.
The “Movie Night” scene can recline your seats, dim your lights, and play the movie – all with one button press (or even voice command).
Multi-room audio is also a widely used feature, with many customers requesting music be played throughout the home on various speakers (either in-wall or in-ceiling). The music can even emanate from outside with garden-installed speakers.
Unused electronic devices or climate control systems that don’t adapt to the environment are some of the biggest energy wasters. Whether you are looking to reduce energy consumption, manage your water use, or keep the house cool in the most efficient way, home automation products, and their ever-improving efficiency solutions will provide an incredibly eco-friendly experience.
Some examples of this might include:
Smart home technology is even built into modern appliances, such as washers, dryers, and ovens. These devices can alert you when they need some TLC or parts need servicing. This ensures you get the maximum life out of your expensive household items.
Insurance companies are also in favour of smart home technology, especially when you have leak and smoke detectors installed that proactively alert you of concerns within your home.
Smart home technology has improved dramatically over the past 10 years. With the emergence of new products, technology, and providers, the smart home will continue to revolutionize the way we view comfort and convenience in our day-to-day lives.
