The benefits of having a Home/Office Automation System

Has it ever crossed your mind how an Automation System can benefit your home, office, and lifestyle? At a touch of a button you can literally have a full control of your home or office. Today we will look at the main benefits of having such a system, but first let’s have a brief definition.

What’s a Home/Office Automation System?

Imagine an easy way of controlling your home or office entertainment, temperature (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), security system, window shades, and surveillance cameras, all from one centralized device. This is what we call an Automation System, or a Smart Home, if you like.

And what are the Benefits of having one?

1) Convenience and Accessibility

Life can make it difficult to be at your premises at the right time. Having the convenience of remotely unlocking your gate/doors the moment your kids arrive home from school, or when the repair person shows up can be a real time saver.

How about the ability of turning off all the lights in your home without having to get out of bed? Or use your smartphone, laptop or portal device to turn your wireless home security alarm system on/off, no matter where you are.

2) Security/Protection

Being able to lock your front door or gate from your smart phone or tablet ensures that you’ll never have to stress out or worry yourself wondering whether you remembered to lock your door before going to bed or leaving for work.

When integrated with CCTV Surveillance Systems, home or office automation systems allow premises owners to remotely monitor their property, whether from the comfort of their beds, or when out having dinner with their friends.

 In addition to the above, the automation systems have the ability to instantly alert property owners, by phone, text, or email, whenever they detect unusual system behaviors or movements within the premises.

3) Convenient Entertainment Control

An automation system provides the building occupant with the most convenient way of controlling entertainment within the building. Ability to control all your audio and video devices universally, with one device. Or the ability to stream music or video files from your phone to your TV wirelessly.

4) Energy Management and Saving

Home/Office Automation Systems allow premises owners to regulate on their energy consumption, which in turn saves money and has a green impact on the environment.

Lights can shut off automatically when no one is in a room, and the thermo equipment can be set to let the indoor temperature drop during the day before returning it to a more comfortable level just before residents arrive in the evening. All of these automated tasks, along with modern, energy-efficient appliances, combine to save on electricity and water thereby reducing the strain on natural resources.

5) Seller/Re-seller Advantage

When it comes to selling a smart home or an automated office block, the seller will have effective selling point. The seller can underline the advantages of the automation system and explain how it will make life easier to the wannabe-buyer.

In addition smart home and offices have the potential to sell for much more than comparable homes with conventional technologies.
