One of the benefits of buying a Vivint home security system in Lima is that you can sync it with home automation. Items such as a smart thermostat will make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Smart locks allow you to remote control your doorways. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door up again once you get your automated garage door sensor.
However, as powerful as these tools are on their own, they can have an even greater impact when utilized in tandem with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Lima that will make your home much more responsive to your needs:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on the defensive when you leave for work
Along with a before bed routine, you can designate your automation systems to arm when your house is vacant. With your Vivint App, you can protect your living space through an easy button touch. Now you can be sure that every door is secure, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are on duty. You can even close the garage door with the app if you accidentally left it wide open.
You don't have to keep your living space on alert the whole day. Open the doors for incoming family or service professionals via the mobile app. Or set your home on guard without even lifting a finger. By placing a geofence around your home, your network of devices turns on each time you leave the driveway. Then when you return home, your alarms turn off, and your doors unlock when you drive up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your before bed schedule has become routine: shut off all the lights, lock the doors, adjust the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how many times have you woken up to see that you forgot to lock the back door or left the living room light on? And once you neglect to do one part of your nightly checklist, it's simple to overlook it the next time, as well. After a while, your forgotten regimen becomes routine in its own right.
But you can ensure that your house is set for bedtime every night when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Lima home security system, you can create scenarios that set all your devices without you going around the house. With a press of a button, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, change the thermostat, and set your alarm. Or don't fret about forgetting to press a button. Program your automation to turn on at a set time -- such as 10pm.
