Brooklyn Home Automation Ideas

You use smart speakers, but are they complicating your life easier? Most smart devices can make you become efficient and alert. Here are a few Brooklyn home automation tips and tricks to make your smart speakers work for your home.

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

If you have school-aged children, it's nice to find out when they come home for the day. Try this Brooklyn home automation idea to get an mobile alert when they walk into the house. First, lock and then set it to text your smart watch and phone when they use their secret unlock code. Then tell them a quick heads up through the two-way talk feature on an indoor camera.

Trick: Integrate Your Home Automation Equipment

One of the best things about a smart home security system is linking all of your smart components to each other. For example, don't fret about remembering to lock your entry way when you leave the house. Instead, use your smart devices mobile app to simply lock your doors when your smart watch notices you left your home. You can also pre-program rules where your smart lights come on if your security cameras detect suspicious motion or have your smart thermostat turn on the exhaust fan if your monitored fire alarms go off.

Tip: Program Scenes For Your Home Automation Devices

When you’re a homeowner, you know how frustrating it is to decide which breaker manages which area of your residence when your fuse box aren't clearly diagrammed. It's similar with your home automation devices. When naming up your smart lights, you don't need to be mistaken about which home automation device is left on or which smart camera is triggered. Getting an alert that the main entryway has been breached takes the guessing out of trying to recognize if, say, a notification that window three has been broken.

Trick: Protect Your Deliveries with Home Automation

The theft of delivered packages might be a common annoyance. However, by installing a doorbell camera with your home security, you can combat theft. You can plan your security system to show you texts when your packages arrive, then automatically record video if the camera is tripped afterward. You may even set it to trigger your smart light or use the 2-way talk feature, so it always seems like you're home.
