Why Your Should Make Your Covington Home Smart

Above all, families want to make their homes safer, more energy efficient, and easier to manage.

In this blog, we’ll show you how Acadian Home Theater & Automation partnered with Control4 to meet all of your smart home needs in Covington, Louisiana. Here are the top three reasons why investing in smart home automation is worth it.
1. Add Convenience
Whether it’s summer and you have big plans to take a vacation, or it’s the middle of the year and work and school is quite demanding, a smart home system will help you manage your household and daily schedule. Managing a home and a family requires a lot of attention. Your Control4 system can act as a personal assistant, monitoring your property for security, keeping the house at the best temperature to save energy, and planning parties for entertaining guests. The truth is that being able to control your home with a mobile device – like your iPhone – is super convenient. And the magic of automation even allows you to take a hands-free approach since your system can think and act on its own. Simply tell it what to do using your smartphone, tablet, or in-wall touch screen with the Control4 app, and then go about the rest of your day without a second thought. Control4’s interface is also easy enough for anyone to use, from your 10-year-old to your grandmother, so you don’t have to be the only one in control.
2. Add Security
Security is often one of the first experiences people have with home automation. Protecting your home and family is a number-one priority of course, and automation not only helps you stay close to home by giving you access to live video footage, but also gives you the ability to act immediately through remote access. And with so many incredible features today, there are an abundance of ways to make your home more secure.
First, keep an eye on your house at all times, from any place in the world, with surveillance cameras and remote monitoring. Check in on your kids, pets, or parents from anywhere in the world using cloud technology and a secure platform. Our system will also send you alerts via text messaging or email if an intruder breaks in, a person enters the house, or any other conditions you would like to know about. Some smart cameras have motion sensor technology that detect activity and send you an alert immediately.
Second, screen visitors and then let them in remotely using smart locks and intercom technology. Give each family member his or her own access code, and temporary pass codes to temporary guests. See who is ringing the doorbell using your cameras and then speak to them through the intercom. Let the postman in using your phone, or simply tell him to leave the package at the front door since you’ll be home soon. Our security systems keep you safe, and add convenience to your everyday life.
3. Add Green Technology
Green homes may be a trend, but they are also helpful for saving money on monthly utility bills, adding comfort and giving back to the environment. A climate control system will automatically change the temperature, light levels and shade settings to conserve electricity and keep you comfortable.
Changing the thermostat at varying times of day to save energy can get tedious, especially if you have a tendency to forget to adjust it. With smart home automation, your system manages the temperature throughout the day for you based on your preferences and goals. The Control4 thermostat can adjust itself based on the “home” or “away” mode it’s in, and also on the time of day or current season. Pick a setting and let it automatically change at exact times, or give yourself full control and change it whenever you feel like it. You can also control fan speed settings and humidity levels with your Control4 wireless thermostat. While a smart thermostat is a prime opportunity to save energy and money, adding lighting and shading control is another key way to go green.
