How to Turn Your House Into a Smart Home of the Future
The speed of new technology is accelerating faster and faster each year. Smart homes are becoming popular as new technology, from lighting control to high-tech surveillance, makes our lives easier and safer.
Systems like Amazon Alexa, Google Nest, and Apple’s Siri provide a way to connect and control your home in many different ways. But because there are so many new options for smart homes, you may feel overwhelmed about buying and setting up your system.
By building a smart home ecosystem, you can manage all aspects of your home from one place. We’ll show you how to turn your home into a smart home of the future!
Smart Speakers & Displays
Many smart speakers are on the market, including popular ones like Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Nest. Smart speakers and displays are your digital assistants, giving you updates on the weather, your schedule, music, and fun facts. You can ask a smart speaker about anything, and it will search the Internet for answers.
You can place several devices around your home and link them together for maximum efficiency. Smart speakers are a great way to get information while going about your day, rather than stopping to check your phone. Smart speakers are an option to control your smart home, using your voice rather than your phone or another device.
Smart TVs & Streaming Devices
Smart TVs and streaming devices are a great way to make your smart home even smarter. Some smart TVs have your streaming services already installed, so you don’t need an additional device. However, you can also purchase streaming devices to watch whatever shows on whichever streaming service you want.
Home Security Systems
Home security systems are more accessible than ever, and they are a great way to turn your home into a smart home of the future. Using a system of cameras, smart doorbells, door locks, and smoke and CO alarms, you can ensure your family is protected, even while at work or on vacation. The system will notify you via your phone if anything happens to trigger your home security system, which gives you a chance to call emergency services.
Audio Video Protocol’s smart surveillance systems are customized to fit your home and your security needs. Our experienced team can integrate security solutions with mobile or remote-controlled access for ease of use.
Give yourself and your family peace of mind that they will be safe and alerted to potential danger!
Smart thermostats are a great way to save energy and keep your home cozy. You can install a smart thermostat in your home to help maintain the optimum temperature, and you can connect them to your home’s ecosystem and control the temperature from your voice and phone.
Some smart thermostats learn your preferences and adjust accordingly without intervention. You can save money on heating and cooling costs by incorporating a smart thermostat into your home.
Another way to save energy costs is by installing smart light bulbs into your light fixtures. They tie into your home ecosystem and are controlled by an app, smart speaker, or touchscreen panel.
You can ask your smart speaker to turn off your bedroom lights rather than get out of bed once you’re already comfy or turn off lights in one area of the house without entering the room. These light bulbs can change brightness levels, colors, and intensity to create optimal lighting for your home.
Audio Video Protocol can set up custom smart lighting control for you, including a voice command or touchscreen panel for full control. We can include energy-efficient smart lighting, so your rooms are bright while using less energy. This is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
Smart Blinds and Shades
A unique way to automate your home is by adding smart blinds and window shades. Audio Video Protocol can set up blinds in your home that are controllable by a mobile app.
Smart blinds help enhance privacy and climate control through light filters and can be controlled even if you’re not at home. We can provide a customized solution for your home that fits within your budget.
