Take Advantage of Your Smart Home System During Challenging Times
The current health crisis has certainly taken its toll on stress levels across Houston and the rest of the country as families are faced with a new normal inside their homes. And while regular routines will eventually return, stress will always be part of our lives. Smart home automation can help release some of that stress so you can feel more relaxed at home during these difficult times and in the future.
Discover three ways a Smart Home can support a more relaxing home environment for you and your family.
Feel Safer with Smart Home Security
When your security devices are tied into your home automation system, it’s easier than ever to check on cameras, view the status of your door locks, and see which sensors were triggered right from your smartphone or touch panel. Real-time notifications alert you of not only suspicious activity but of potential fires and water leaks, too.
Leaving to get groceries? Going to sleep? Quickly check the status of your vital devices at a glance to ensure doors are locked, the alarm is armed, the garage door is closed, and certain lights are off—all from the convenience of your phone. Your app can even alert you of unlocked doors, open windows, and other insecurities when you’re away.
Sleep Better with One-Tap Scenes
When we’re stressed, good sleep is usually one of the first things to go. Unfortunately, poor sleep can lead to serious physical and mental health problems. By utilizing smart technology in the bedroom, you can create an environment that facilitates better sleep with strategic control of lights, shading, and climate.
Schedule a “Relax” or “Goodnight” scene that triggers your lights to dim and shades to lower approximately an hour before you plan to go to sleep to encourage restfulness. Your thermostat can lower in tandem with lights and shading so that your bedroom is the ideal temperature when it’s time for bed.
Relax and Reconnect with Multi-Room Audio
Music plays a key part in reducing stress and encouraging relaxation. Smart Environments multi-room audio lets you enjoy music on your own terms, in any room of your home, at the touch of a button. Say goodbye to piles of remotes, tangles of wires, and poor-quality sound. Instead, press a button on your controller of choice or just ask Alexa to play your favorite calming playlist in any room of your home.
Enjoy streaming content from the world’s most popular services like Spotify, Pandora, and Tidal. While your kids enjoy pop music upstairs, you and your partner can relax to jazz on the patio. Smart Environments makes managing the music in any room easy for everyone in the family.
