One of the perks of installing a Vivint home security system in Tulsa is that you can sync it with home automation. Devices such as a smart thermostat can make your home the ideal temperature and eco-friendly. Smart locks empower you to remote control your entrances. And you won’t forget that you left the garage door open again with an automated garage door sensor.
However, as convenient as these tools are by themselves, they can have an even greater effect when employed together with your home security system. Here are just 5 amazing home automation ideas for Tulsa that will make your living space much more responsive to your wishes:
Home Automation Idea #1: Go on guard when you leave for work
Along with an evening routine, you can program your automation parameters to activate when your house is empty. With your Vivint App, you can secure your home through a single button press. Now you can ensure that every entryway is secure, every light is turned off, the alarms are armed, and your cameras are activated. You can even close the garage door with the app if it’s accidentally left wide open.
You don't have to keep your home on alert the entire day. Unlock the doors for out-of-town friends or service professionals through the mobile app. Or set your home on lockdown without even pushing a button. By setting a geofence around your property, your system arms each time you leave the driveway. Then when you come home, your alarms disarm, and your doors unlock when you pull up to the garage.
Home Automation Idea #2: Put your home down for the night
Your bedtime habits has become routine: shut off the lights, lock the door, set the thermostat, and prep your security system. However, how often have you woken up to find that you forgot to lock the front door or left the living room light on? And once you neglect to do one thing on your nightly routine, it's easy to overlook it another time, too. Before you know it, your forgotten regimen becomes commonplace on its own.
But you can guarantee that your home is prepared for bedtime every evening when you automate your nighttime ritual. Through your Tulsa home security system, you can craft rules that fine-tune all your devices without you leaving bed. With a press of a button, you can lock the doors, power off the lights, lower the thermostat, and arm your security devices. Or don't agonize about failing to remember to press a button. Set your automation to turn on at a specific time -- like midnight.
