One of the advantages of buying a Vivint home security system in Burlington is that you can sync it with home automation. Components like a smart thermostat should make your house more comfortable and eco-conscious. Smart locks allow you to remote control your doors. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as great as these devices are by themselves, they can have an even larger effect when used together with your home security system. Here are just 5 life-changing home automation ideas for Burlington that will make your home much more responsive to your lifestyle:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on alert when you leave for work
Along with an evening routine, you can designate your automation rules to set when your home is not currently occupied. With your Vivint App, you can defend your house through a single button tap. Now you can be sure that every door is locked, every light is off, the alarms are set, and your cameras are activated. You can even close the garage door via the app if it’s accidentally left wide open.
You don't need to keep your home locked up the whole day. Open the doors for incoming visitors or service workers with the smartphone app. Or put your home on lockdown without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your home, your system arms each time you pull out of the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you come up to the house.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your bedtime ritual has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the door, adjust the thermostat, and arm your security system. However, how often have you woken up to see that you forgot to lock the side door or left the bathroom light burning? And once you fail to do one part of your nightly routine, it's simple to neglect it the next night, too. Before you know it, your forgotten regimen becomes commonplace.
But you can make sure that your house is set for bed every night when you automate your nighttime routine. Through your Burlington home security system, you can craft templates that set 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 set your security system. Or don't fret about forgetting to hit a button. Set your automation to activate at a set time -- like midnight.
