Home Automation Tips And Tricks In Mobile

You have smart speakers, but are they making your life easier? Most smart home components will help you become effective and alert. Here are a few Mobile home automation tips and tricks to enable your smart speakers work for you.

Tip: Install Smart Locks To See When Your Kids Arrive Home From School

If you have school-aged adolescents, it's nice to see when they come in from the bus. Use this Mobile home automation idea to get an instant message when they enter the house. First, install and then set it to alert your smart watch and phone when they use their private unlock code. Then tell them a quick hi through the 2-way talk feature on your indoor camera.

Trick: Link Your Automation Equipment

One of the neatest things about a smart home security system is integrating all of your smart devices together. For example, don't trouble yourself about locking your entry way when you leave for work. Instead, use your security mobile app to automatically bolt your doors when your smart watch notices you left your home. You can also create rules where your alarms come on if your security cameras sense sudden motion or have your smart thermostat turn on the exhaust if your smart alarms go off.

Tip: Set Scenes For Your Home Automation

As a homeowner, you know how annoying it is to decode which breaker manages which area of your home when they aren't clearly diagrammed. It's similar with your smart devices. When setting up your smart cameras, you don't need to be mistaken about which smart camera is left on or which alarm or sensor is buzzing. Getting an alert that the living room entryway has been breached takes the guessing out of trying to recognize if, say, a notification that door one has been breached.

Trick: Protect Your Front Porch with Home Automation

The theft of received packages could be a typical fear. But, by adding a smart doorbell camera with your security system, you can combat missing deliveries. You can schedule your home security system to transmit to texts when your boxes are dropped off, then automatically record video if the camera is tripped afterward. You might even program it to activate your smart locks or use the 2-way talk feature, so it still looks like you're home.
