When deciding where to spend money when it comes to home upgrades, don’t overlook those upgrades that will make your life easier, more efficient, and more convenient. These are the types of home upgrades that will leave you asking yourself “How did I ever live without this?”
Here are four of our favorite convenience-boosting home upgrades:
Automated Door Locks
With automated, remote access door locks you will never get locked out or need to hide a key under your mat (at the risk of home security) again. Automated door locks let you lock and unlock doors remotely to let someone in so you don’t have to give out spare keys. Your door lock will even sense when you get home (thanks to the smart technology on your cell phone) and unlock your door for you automatically, so that you don’t have to fumble with your keys in the dark.
Remote HVAC Control
Remote HVAC control allows you to completely control your home’s heating and cooling no matter where you are. You will no longer waste energy cooling or heating an empty home, and you will also avoid coming home to an uncomfortable home. Your HVAC system will make sure you’re comfortable when you’re home, will save you energy when you’re gone, and will even work seamlessly with your other smart home technology.
Smart Sprinkler Systems
Everyone wants a lush, green lawn but achieving and maintaining one can be quite a hassle. Smart sprinkler systems take most of the work out of watering your yard, flowers, and garden by being fully programmable and able to be controlled remotely. Some smart sprinkler systems will even adapt their watering schedule based on the season and current weather in order to prevent wasted water.
With automated lighting you can turn your lights on and off remotely, which is great when you get to work and realize you forgot to turn off the lights, or when you’re on vacation and want to turn lights on to make it look like someone is home. You can even program some smart lights with different themes and color groups to create whatever ambiance you’re in the mood for.
Don’t forget that home upgrades that make life more convenient may also boost your property value and make your home more appealing to buyers when it’s time to sell. To find out how Fluent home automation can make your life easier and your home more secure, be sure to get in touch today.
