Smart home technology used to be a science fiction fantasy, but these days you can control just about any aspect of your home from your smartphone or tablet. This makes life infinitely more convenient, especially when you have your Indianapolis smart home automation system professionally installed.
Installing smart home technology can sometimes be done by a tech-savvy homeowner, but utilizing professional services ensures that every feature in your home is connected to each other and fully integrated. It also means that you’ll be able to give us a call if you have any issues with your home automation system. If you do it all yourself, you’re also on your own when things go wrong. Having ProTECHt install your smart home devices means we’re just a phone call away if you have questions.
To help you get a better idea of how certain smart home features can be used, read about four options we offer to Indianapolis homeowners!
Smart Lighting System
Once you live with a smart lighting system in your home, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. Smart lights allow you to control any integrated lamps or lights with your phone or tablet. One benefit of this is better control over your electricity usage because you can control your lights from anywhere. If you realize you left a light on at home after you get to work, just open up the app on your phone and turn it off.
However, the true benefit of this is convenience. You can turn on your lights without getting out of bed in the morning. If you put on a movie, you can turn off the lights from the couch. You can even create a light schedule that turns on any lights you choose after a certain time. This is an awesome feature for homeowners who work at night. If you have pets at home, you can ensure they’re not sitting in the dark while you’re at work. It is also a vital safety feature to use when you are on vacation. Having lights turning on and off throughout the day can create the illusion that someone is home.
Installing a smart thermostat is one of the best ways to save on your energy bills and take the guesswork out of adjusting the thermostat. With a manual thermostat, most people will bump it up a few degrees when they are cold and turn it back down when they are warm. Doing this might make the home more comfortable, but it also wreaks havoc on your energy bills because your system is working overtime to meet your demands.
What if there was an easier way to interact with your thermostat? What if you could set-it-and-forget-it and trust that it will do its job? With a smart thermostat, you can do just that. When you call us for a smart thermostat installation in Indianapolis, we will teach you how to use your new gadget to create a comfortable home year-round while lowering your energy bills. Your new thermostat is fully integrated with the rest of the smart home gadgets and security features we install, so you can control everything from the same device with ease.
Video doorbells can be considered both a vital part of home security and a convenient smart home automation tool. When a visitor approaches your door, you will get an alert on your smartphone and be able to see, hear, and interact with the visitor in real time.
As a security feature, this can show you if a suspicious person approaches your door but does not ring the doorbell or if they take a package off of your porch. It also gives you the ability to see who is at the door before you open it if you are not expecting company.
But it can also be a way to kindly tell solicitors that you’re not interested or to tell a delivery person to leave a package in a discreet area. If a friend is coming by to drop something off while you’re at work, you can even use your doorbell to ensure it is them, then unlock your door using your smartphone, and lock the door behind them when they leave.
Automated Deadbolt Locks and Keyless Entry
These two smart home devices allow you to control the locks on your home from anywhere at any time. Like the rest of our smart home automation services in Indianapolis, this feature can integrate directly with your home security system. Smart lock installation makes life so much more convenient.
Our smart locks can be locked and unlocked from your phone or by using a keypad or a traditional key. This means that the chances of you getting locked out of your home are low. It also means that you can pull into your driveway and unlock your door as you walk up to it, so if you are carrying groceries or a sleeping child, you don’t even have to punch in a code to enter your home.
