How Can Home Automation Help You Care for Your Family?
Your home is your family’s epicenter. It’s the one place where they should always feel happy, comfortable and safe. We know you do your best to get your Minnetonka, Minnesota house up to the task. But there’s no reason that you should be bearing the burden alone. You can take advantage of smart home automation technology that makes it easier to take control of your home, so it's the ideal place for everyone in your family.
Smart Technology Becomes Your Parenting Partner
When it comes to raising kids, you need all the help you can get. Let a smart home automation system be your partner. It helps you make sure your children are safe when you’re not home and helps you keep them away from inappropriate entertainment or technology. First of all, remote monitoring lets you keep track of your kids while you're at work.
Receive a notification—with an image snapshot attached-- on your phone as soon as they make it home from school. You can then look in on live surveillance video to see what they're up to all afternoon. Smart home automation centralizes all your technology in one place.
But there may be some technology you don’t want to hand over to your kids. Create personalized profiles so that, depending on their age, kids cannot manage certain features. This can range from limiting specific channels or titles in your media server to cutting off access to entire systems like your home security.
You can use your smart security to keep your children from dangerous items too. Place motion sensors near your gun cabinet or liquor cabinet to receive a notification if anyone tries to open them when you’re not home.
Give Increased Independence to Elderly Family Members
A smart home automation solution also lets you create a great environment for older family members. Your technology gives them added autonomy while also helping professionals take care of them in the case of an emergency or extended care situation. Many of the services that come with your home automation system are essential for elders. Lighting and shading control, for example, let them make adjustments without having to walk across a room or deal with heavy drapes.
Having a Control4 user interface may also be easier for those with poor eyesight. With graphics instead of text, it's easier for them to find what they need. You can also set up a personalized profile so the systems they use most appear on their main menu. This way they don’t have to dig around or press multiple buttons.
Smart locks can also be a great tool for caregivers. They just put in a code to disarm and arm your system for quick access. Not only do they have a convenient way to enter, but you can also use the codes to monitor their hours. It’s also easy to respond in case of an emergency. If anything goes wrong, unlock the front door and disarm your security system remotely to let in a neighbor or paramedic.
