Smart homes are the wave of the future. In fact, the market is projected to be worth 53 billion by 2022. That’s not very far away.
With a smart home system, you can control many functions in your home with a few simple voice commands or the touch of a button. Smart home systems also perform many automated tasks like raising and lowering the thermostat to help your home be more streamlined and energy efficient.
One of the leading smart home systems out there is the Savant system. Let’s learn how this incredible system takes the smart from the phone to the home. Check out these great benefits!
1. A More Secure Home
About 2 million homes are burglarized each year. Plus, burglars are 300% more likely to target homes that don’t have security systems.
What does that mean for you? If you’re serious about keeping your things and your family safe, a security system is a must.
You can also choose to take it up a notch with a Savant smart home system.
Did you forget to lock the front door on your way out this morning? Lock it remotely from your smartphone.
Want to make sure that the nanny isn’t bringing along any uninvited guests? Set up a video camera to see who’s at the door and let her in remotely.
You can also keep track of your house through the surveillance system when you go on vacation. And don’t forget to take advantage of Savant’s “lived-in” feature.
To make it look like somebody’s still there while you’re gone you can automate opening and closing your blinds. Plus, you can have the system turn on and off lights, the TV, and music to make your home look “lived-in”.
Savant home automation is incredibly convenient. From one app you can control your entire home. You can also program settings to perform several functions at the touch of one button.
For example, you can choose a temperature for when you’re not at home, a time for the lights to come on, and have your shades close at dusk all with one “away from home” setting.
You can also set up individual user profiles. Each person can customize the home to their liking. This is also helpful when you want some folks to have limited access, like a housekeeper, nanny, or your kids.
Use simple voice commands to control many functions. No more fighting over who has to get up to turn the lights off at night. Just tell the system to do it.
3. Climate Control
With Savant, you have full control over the temperature inside your home, right down to individual rooms. No more compromising on a temperature that makes everybody happy. Each person can pick their own temperature for their room. This is particularly handy at night.
Save energy by lowering the temperature when you’re not around. And don’t worry if you forget to set it. The motion sensors will determine that no one is around and lower the temperature automatically.
4. Save Energy and Water
Controlling the HVAC system isn’t the only way home automation can save energy. It can also turn off lights that aren’t in use and adjust the shades throughout the day to take advantage of or block the rays of the sun.
It can even save water by not turning on your sprinklers when rain is in the forecast.
5. Easy Entertainment
The Savant system makes use of a seamless connection with Apple devices to provide effortless entertainment. You can control virtually everything in your home from your iPhone.
Set the mood for a romantic evening, turn on party music, or put the game on TV with the touch of a button. You can even fire up the hot tub to be ready for you when you get home after a long day. It’s easy to set up and very user-friendly, just as Apple products are known for.
The Savant home theater setting will transform your living room and get it ready for movie night. The setting will recline the seats, dim the lights and start the show. Perhaps someday soon it will even make the popcorn for you!
6. Maintenance Reminders
Keeping track of home maintenance can be a chore in itself. Regular maintenance will help virtually everything in your home function better, use less energy, and last longer.
But it can be hard to remember when it’s time to change the air filters, have the ducts cleaned, service the furnace, or even just change the filter in your water pitcher. You try to set up reminders in your phone or write it in your day planner, but it never seems to work. Let the system take care of reminding you about all that stuff.
Your homeowner’s insurance company might even give you a break on your premiums. They like the fact that the Savant system helps ensure that you know about potential household problems before they cause damage. Not to mention the extra security benefits we talked about earlier.
