Why Smart Home Systems Are Essential For Your Busy Schedule

Why Smart Home Systems Are Essential For Your Busy Schedule

Everyone needs a security system. No longer are we in the days where a lock and key will suffice for your residential security system. This is mostly because we aren’t present to monitor what is happening in and around our properties 24/7. But no matter what keeps you busy, you likely spend many hours away from your home, and Coggin Security wants to ensure that you have one less thing to worry about while you’re gone. No matter what kind of security solution you are looking for, a smart home system is an easy and convenient place to start and will help streamline your busy schedule. 

You Can Control Your Home When You’re Away

Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you can’t be a responsible homeowner. With a smart home system, you can ensure that you’re constantly making responsible adjustments to your property. What we love about the smart home system is that you are able to control your home’s internal and external settings from anywhere at anytime. With a phone or tablet, you are capable of locking doors, monitoring security cameras, adjusting lighting, controlling smart kitchen appliances, and even being notified of a flood, fire alarm, or potential break-in. While you may feel like you have to constantly return home from work or trips (or even hire a housesitter) to make sure everything is in check, a smart home system removes all of the fuss and makes your busy life much more streamlined. 

As you may recognize, the best benefit of a smart home is that you can stay in control even from afar. Here are some other ways you can utilize a smart home system to stay on top of your home security while you’re away:

  • When you’re away for long periods of time, you can set indoor and outdoor lights to turn on and off sporadically. This trick will help discourage burglars. 
  • A smart home system can generate a “digital house key” through a lock system. With this feature, you won’t have to hand over a physical house key to a sitter or housekeeper, but rather have a digital key that only permits entry during a specified period of your choosing. 
  • A smart doorbell system is able to notify you whenever someone is at your door. For example, you can be aware of when a valuable package gets delivered and even provide instructions through voice control to the delivery person on where to place your parcel. 

Not only can you control these features manually, but you can place the majority of your home’s systems on an automated schedule of your choosing. For example, you can ensure that the oven preheats and your overhead lights dim while you’re on your way home from work. From there, you can always make sure the inside of your home aligns with your busy schedule.

Save Money While Being Green

It can be a big challenge to feel like we’re living sustainably and making eco-conscious decisions. However, smart home systems are an absolutely great way to make sure we not only saving on our energy bills, but we can also be rest assured that we’re making our homes more affordable to live in. With smart home systems, you can make sure lights turn off when you leave a room, appliances are turned off when not in use, and that air conditioning or heating systems only operate when needed. With having a busy schedule, we may forget that these little things not only waste our money, but waste energy. With smart home systems, you can solve both of those problems and have them on an automated schedule to help with your busy lifestyle. 

Not only will you be a more responsible homeowner with the help of smart tech, but you will begin to notice a significant difference in your energy bill. 

They Help You Keep Track of Your Essentials

Smart home technology doesn’t always come in the form of an installable system. For example, if you’re new to smart tech and want to see how it can help with your busy schedule, consider purchasing a key tag such as a Tile. This tracking tag is a great way to integrate smart tech into your everyday routine, while never losing an important item again. While our team highly recommends an entire smart home system, a small and affordable piece of smart tech is a great way to start and see if it’s the right fit for you.
