How Does Automation Enhance Your Lifestyle?

How Does Automation Enhance Your Lifestyle?

The smart home revolution has arrived in full force. Much of the movement revolves around smart gadgets that promise automation, acting without you having to input information. There are products available for every corner of your Dallas, Texas home, from a refrigerator that lets you know if you've run out of beer to security cameras that activate when they sense any movement. While some gadgets are admittedly more practical than others, there’s no better whole-home solution than a smart home automation system.

How do these systems differ from devices you can buy off the shelf? They bring all your technology together and get it to work as one. Through a Savant Systems solution, you can have control of your lighting, security, entertainment, climate and more at the touch of a button. Sensors and schedules are the primary ways smart devices create automated responses. In this blog, we explain how both work best in a connected home.

Sensors

Sensors are the main way automation happens in smart devices. Your lights turn off when a room is unoccupied. A thermostat notices you’ve walked into the room and adjusts the temperature. What a smart home automation system adds to this dynamic is that all your technology reacts to a sensor's message rather than just one device.

Instead of just having a camera recording when a sensor is activated, you can have the lights in the room turn on as well to get the clearest images possible. When you return from work, it’s not just the climate that adjusts. As soon as you walk into your foyer, the room lights up and the television turns on to your favorite channel so you can settle in after a long day.

3 Reasons to Choose Savant for Smart Home Automation

When you’re getting started with smart home automation, one of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make is which system you’ll use to manage everything. There are a lot of great smart system providers out there, but the one we recommend most to our Dallas, Texas clients is Savant. If you’re interested in learning what makes Savant such a great choice for smart homes, then read on.

1. Super User-Friendly Design

The most advanced smart technology in the world won’t do you much good if it’s difficult to use. Instead of a clunky, complex interface that’s hard to navigate, Savant keeps things simple. Each screen is completely intuitive, so you know exactly where to go to manage every part of your home. You can access the system from your phone, tablet, desktop computer, or dedicated remote—whatever you’re most comfortable with. The touchscreen design helps you access each part of the system quickly, so turning on your favorite music playlist or checking the security system is as simple as pushing a button.

2. Powerful Enough for All Your Needs

One of the best things about smart home automation is how it can be customized to fit your lifestyle. With Savant, you’re not stuck with a cookie-cutter solution. Instead, the system can be designed with all sorts of cool features that you might not expect. Savant is compatible with all kinds of different technologies and systems. So whatever high-end audio, surveillance cameras, or existing smart devices you have, they can all be managed by Savant with ease.

3. Reliable for the Long Haul

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that your smart home works the way you want it right when you want it. Technology can be fickle, and the more systems you try to control at once, the higher the chance that something will go wrong. We love Savant because it’s high-quality, well-designed technology. You won’t have to deal with the system breaking every few months or glitchy software that doesn’t perform the way you’d expect. Instead, it just works. When you’re investing in a full home automation solution, having a reliable system is absolutely essential. That’s why we use Savant.
