Benefits of Home Automation | A Smart Home That Simplify Your Life

Smart home automation comes with a variety of perks. The primary benefit being security. Your security gets a huge boost in every aspect. Apart from this, there are a plethora of benefits of home automation.

Imagine this – Your curtains open at 7 to wake you up for work as usual, and your water heater starts. By the time you have finished taking a shower, your coffee is brewed. While you finish making the omelet, the breads are toasted. While having breakfast you are updated with the morning news brief from your favorite channel. You then leave the house for work but, you’ve forgotten to switch off the lights. The lights automatically switch off after 2 minutes. While at work you get a notification on your phone saying that the doorbell has been rung. You tap in, to find out it is only your watchman’s son delivering groceries. You can now call him and say, you are not at home. After a long tiring day at work, you return to a temperature controlled room with the lights set according to your mood.

Some surveillance cameras come with smart features. Such as that on DEFT. This surveillance camera automatically detects any unusual behavior outside the door and immediately alerts the owner on their Smartphone. They know who to call next. This features really deliver a peace of mind for parents, who have kids at home and for those whose retired parents are at home alone.

Generally, over a period of time, any technology loses its appeal. But, not home automation, especially when it is DEFT. DEFT comes with a brain of its own, the artificial intelligence. Over a period of time, it learns your choices and preferences and acts accordingly. For instance, it will ask you if you want to know the latest news on CNN every morning, if CNN is your favorite news channel.

With DEFT you can wake up to the morning sunshine. Automated curtains can be tuned to open at the most convenient time. You can always snooze it on Sundays; we know how important those are.

There was a time when Smartphone operated homes were an attraction, we’ve moved beyond. You can control DEFT through voice too. Just say what you wish it to do and it will be done. It can also adapt to your mother tongue. Talk about cool.

Adding to the benefits of home automation, DEFT allows you to water your plants from anywhere. Say you are going on a vacation. And you’ve left the house early. While on the flight it strikes, you will not be able to water your plants for a week. You open your Smartphone and with a few clicks, it is done.

    My husband and I recently moved into a new home and we are thinking of getting some home automation features to make things more convenient. You make a great point that your home will have the temperature controlled the way that you like it as well as having the lights set according to your mood when you get home from work. Also, the fact that you can get motion sensors that will turn the lights off for you when leaving the house is great because I always forget to do that!
