How to Stay on Schedule with Smart Home Automation

Blog - Smart Home AutomationSee How the Right Technology Facilitates Your Daily Routines

A smart home automation system should be there for you every step of the way, from the moment you wake up in the morning until it’s time to put the kids to bed. Through the use of scenes and centralized control it’s easier to go through your daily routines. In our latest blog, we show you what a typical day is like in a smart home: SEE MORE: Upgrade to a Smart Home in Six Steps 6 a.m.: A “Wake Up” scene in your Control4 system opens the shades, turns on the lights and begins playing music to get your day started. From a touchpad on your nightstand, you can turn the music off once you're up. 6:30 a.m.: We know how hurried mornings can get, so we’ve made it easy for you to manage your entire home. As you prepare breakfast in the kitchen, use your smartphone or touchpad to adjust the thermostat, check in on the kids’ rooms, and get a morning playlist going. 7:30 a.m.: As you leave the house, you can use your smartphone or a keypad by the front door to activate an “Away” scene that turns off all lights and locks all doors. 1 p.m.: Bored during your lunch break? Pull up your Control4 app to look in on live surveillance footage to see what your dog’s been up to while you’re away. 3 p.m.: Get a notification on your smartphone when your kids get home from school. As soon as they use their access codes to get inside, you get a push notification so you know they’ve made it back safely. 5 p.m.: As soon as you get home from work, the lights in the foyer and living room turn on. The TV is already set to the right channel to watch your favorite talk show or newscast. 6:30 p.m. When you’re preparing dinner, use your smart home automation system to adjust the thermostat as the kitchen heats up or to turn up the lights so you can follow your recipe more easily. Integrate an intercom system into your whole home audio to call the kids down when it’s time to eat. 7:30 p.m. It’s time to enjoy a movie together as a family. Once you’re all in the living room, press the “Cinema” scene that dims the lights, closes the shades and pulls up your media library. Now it’s just time to decide what everyone wants to watch. 9:30 p.m.: With a smart home automation system, you can control technology that’s in other rooms as well. This is especially useful when it’s time for bedtime. From your smartphone, see if any TVs are on in your kids’ rooms after hours and turn them off remotely. 11 p.m. It’s also easy to shut off after a long day. Use a keypad on your nightstand to activate a "Goodnight" scene that locks all doors, closes all shades, and turns off all lights when it’s time for you to go to bed.
