We have a word of the day for you – domotics. Perhaps, you’ve heard it. Likely, you haven’t, as we’ve noticed even our spell-checking platform is confused by it. Either way, it’s a fabulous word that results in fabulous things. Derived from the Latin word domus, meaning house, domotics refers to technology that makes a home smart. Basically, it refers to smart home automation. Better yet, we want to make YOU smarter by providing a little information on ELAN home automation.
A Brief History of Smart Home Automation
First, let’s backtrack a bit as we understand the full definition of domotics and smart home automation. In the early 1900s, the idea of household products doing work independently of human assistance proliferated with the introduction of electricity. Washers, refrigerators and sewing machines were just a few of the labor-saving machines that made our tasks at home easier.
By 1975, desire for more control met new technology. At this point, wired communication provided freedom to regulate additional devices with brief radio frequency bursts. Primarily, this led to remote control of lights and appliances. As we move into 2020, the landscape has grown even further.
What Can Be Smart in Your Home?
Essentially, it’s easier to consider what you can’t automate. Even with what you may come up with, there is probably a company out there with a solution! In fact, Synergy Integrated Systems is one of them. We strive to stay on the cutting-edge of smart technology and partner with the best companies capable of providing it. ELAN home automation is one of those elite providers. More importantly, we are proud to be an experienced installer of their products.
To best grasp what we can do for you and your home, consider how our expertise can make systems in your home operate smartly. Just a few things that you can currently control with smart home automation include:
- Lighting – control ambiance no matter where you are
- Video – movies, games, shows, whatever you like, view it from any room in the house
- Sound – send sound soaring indoors and out
- Heating and Air – schedule the atmosphere ahead of time or change temps with the touch of a button
- Security -keep your home safe with innovative features
- Sprinklers – water the lawn without even being home
- Smoke and CO Detectors – synch sensors into your smart home system
- Air Quality – monitor levels within your home
- Kitchen Devices – cook dinner while you’re still at work
- Blinds and Shades – control lighting without moving anything but your finger
Keep in mind, this just a sampling of what you can do.
Benefits of ELAN Home Automation
To understand the full benefits of ELAN home automation, it helps to have more specific examples. After all, you’re only as good as the tools you have. ELAN products are powerful, versatile and adaptable.
Initially, consider relaxation and entertainment. ELAN approaches these directives with several tactics to meet both goals. Using one interface, ELAN allows you to control music, video and essentially everything else with the touch of a button. Send sound soaring in any room of your house. Bring movies or your favorite sporting event with you as you enter new rooms. Change channels, turn audio up, turn it down, whatever you need, with a unified system.
Moreover, as you enjoy your sights and sounds, relax in the perfect ambiance. Manipulate lights, shades and blinds with one command. Or, set ambiance ahead of time to fit specific moods. Program lights to begin at specific times such as wake-up lighting. Or, request a mood when you’re ready for it such as party lighting or dinner music.
Similarly, control climate to set the perfect environment. Once you get comfortable, the last thing you want to do is hop up and adjust air. Change the temperature with the touch of a button. Likewise, climate systems actually anticipate what you may need. Therefore, you can relax in comfort without giving it a second thought. Pre-set climate for various times of the day, eliminating the need for changing the thermostat at various times.
Enjoy the outdoors? Your smart home does too! Remotely, program the hot tub to heat and open the lid before you head out to hop in. Set music and lighting throughout your outdoor space for the perfect ambiance. Forgot to water the lawn? No worries, your automated smart home remembers for you.
All of the elements mentioned above are also easy to use. ELAN’s intuitive systems are easy to understand and enjoy. Better yet, their elegant controls blend seamlessly into your home.
Why You Should Make Your Home Smarter
Now that you know smart home capabilities, you may wonder why you should begin installation now. Foremost, this technology is more affordable than ever. Plus, it’s advanced to a point that it’s also easy to update when it advances again. Okay, we admit, that may sound a little confusing. To clarify, you don’t have to add all systems at once. If you desire to advance your system later, you can. Or, if technological options improve, installing new products is much simpler than in the past. Integration is the key. More and more home products are made to work seamlessly with automation controls.
Smart homes save money too. A smart HVAC system intuits needs and adjusts to be efficient. Plus, you can easily view a readout of your utility usage. Correspondingly, automatically-timed shades use light efficiently. Blinds and shades that react to internal temperatures also save on your utility bills.
Not only are these perks good for the environment, they increase your quality of living as well. Saving time and being comfortable makes for a happier home. Saving money on utility bills adds to the happiness factor! Often, we’re so busy taking care of everyone else that we forget to take care of ourselves. Your smart home won’t forget.
Similarly, when you improve your home for yourself, it improves it for others. Consequently, smart home automation can actually increase your house’s value. Not only will your family enjoy it, future occupants will savor the benefits as well. When it comes time to sell, these features will add value to your investment.
