Home Automation for Easy Energy Management with Smart Schedules
A quality home automation system makes it easy to manage your energy consumption. Automated thermostats and lights, along with smart schedules and integrated energy-use monitoring, form the basis for a solid energy management plan for your home. Mobile control through your smart phone provides for energy management even while you are away from home.
Automated System Components
Heating and cooling systems use lots of energy, but automated thermostats keep you in control of your home’s temperature and your energy usage. Take charge of your energy management by scheduling your furnace and air conditioning to heat and cool when you need it most. Keep the temperature moderate when no one is home, and have it warm up or cool down in time for your arrival.
Automated lights turn on and off exactly when you want them, such as before you enter a room and after you leave. Connect your lights and your doors, to have automatic illumination when you need it.
Automated thermostats and lights lead to better energy management without a loss of quality of life.
System Control through Mobile Apps
Control your energy management components even when you are away from home with smart schedules. Mobile support lets you adjust your thermostat or lights from your smartphone or tablet. You will stop wasting energy by forgetting to turn down the thermostat or turn off the lights when you leave your house. Use your Internet-enabled device for energy management, no matter where you are. Then, turn the heat back up and the entryway light back on before you arrive home.
Optimized Savings Based on Your Usage Patterns
Energy management through smart schedules includes energy-use monitoring. See exactly how much energy each of your integrated components uses and when they are used most. Connect your energy management components to your Protection 1 security system to manage everything in one application. Learn how your family’s activity pattern relates to energy usage. Enhance your energy management by efficiently scheduling your thermostat based on real usage patterns.
Local Weather Integration
Program your thermostat to adjust a few degrees whenever extreme temperatures hit your home’s location. Raising or lowering your thermostat just a few degrees in extreme weather increased the effectiveness of your energy management plan and saves you money. Your smart schedules use your local weather forecast to decide when adjustments are necessary and takes care of the changes without further input on your part.
