Living Sustainably with Home Automation

Home automation is often talked about as a way to add luxury and convenience to your home. While that is true, home automation is also an excellent way to ensure that you’re living in an energy-efficient way! Here are a few ways you can live sustainably with home automation.

Energy Efficiency

Home automations often need electricity to truly shine when it comes to features and functions, which is why most home automations are designed to be as energy efficient as possible. However, even with devices using energy as efficiently as possible, it can still result in an overuse of electricity without proper management. The good news is, there’s a solution for this. 

We offer a line of energy management systems that put you into full control of your energy consumption. These systems allow you to monitor how much electricity your systems are using and when they are using it, and from there you can even set timers and limits on individual devices.

Temperature Controls

An excellent way to live more sustainably is to take advantage of a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats not only allow you to control the temperature from your phone but they also can make automatic adjustments based on your preferences and limits.

For example, if a window is opened or a fan is turned on, your thermostat can detect this change in temperature and ease off of the air conditioning to save power.

Keeping the Heat Out

We live in South Louisiana and with that comes heat. A lot of heat. It’s expected that once the summer months hit, air conditioning will be running and energy bills will rise. We’ve already talked about how a smart thermostat can help with your energy usage, but another way to cut down on energy consumption is through smart shading. 

Automated shades aren’t just an excellent way to maintain the privacy of your home, they also work great at keeping the heat out during the summer. With a variety of materials available and the ability to remote control your shades from your phone, this is an easy way to keep your home cool and your costs down.

There are a number of ways that home automation can allow you to live a more sustainable life. Not just for the benefit of your wallet, but also to help reduce waste.
