Simple Ways You Can Begin Your Smart Home Automation Upgrade
This Holiday Season, Make Your Home Smarter
The summer may just be over, but the holidays are right around the corner. From Halloween to Thanksgiving to the winter holidays, there’s plenty of things to do to close out 2017. But you don’t have to do it alone when you invest in smart home automation. While it may seem too good to be true, smart automation can simplify your holidays – even with just a few components. After all, you don’t have to integrate an entire system overnight. In this blog, we’ll show you some simple smart home steps you can take that will help you enjoy the holidays a little bit more.
Smart Lighting for Halloween
Smart lighting is one of the best places you can start investing in a home automation system. Whether you want a system that helps save you energy or one that makes your home look even better than before, Lutron has a solution. And when you combine the fun effects of a Lutron LED lighting system with the spooky scenery of Halloween, you can’t lose.
With a connected tablet or smartphone, you can adjust the brightness, layer them to highlight certain aspects of your spooky holiday decorations, and even change the color from standard white to pumpkin orange. Plus, you can save the settings and return to them whenever you feel like it with the touch of a button.
Motorized Shades for Thanksgiving
Integrating motorized shades is a great way to make your home look good and also save a little bit of energy in the process. But one of the best things your shades can do is add privacy to your spaces. If you’re planning to visit family this Thanksgiving, you can help keep your home secure with smart shading solutions.
ELAN, a leader in home automation, offers an “away” setting for your system. When you leave the house, simply press a button and your smart system springs into action. Shades raise and lower as though someone is at home at all times. And if you combine the effect with an integrated smart lighting system, you can make it look even more realistic. That way, would-be intruders will think twice before burglarizing your home.
Enhance Your AV for the Winter Holidays
Once the presents are all opened and the dinner is finished, you’re probably going to want to gather around the home entertainment system with a favorite holiday movie. But why go through the hassle of multiple remotes when you can enjoy a system that combines everything with one touch? Turn on the TV, adjust the surround sound system and play a movie that will make everyone happy.
Plus, you can even integrate motorized shades and smart lighting to create the perfect setting. Smart home automation is just that simple!
