Understanding Home Automation

Sometimes companies throw around the term "home automation system" without really defining what it means. We want to make sure to cover the basics before we get into the finer details. A home automation system is a system that allows you to control things like your lights, air conditioning, heating, garage doors, security system, and more from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Setting up a great home automation system requires two things:

  1. A control system or "hub" that connects all your "smart" devices
  2. Compatible devices designed to work with a home automation system

When you choose the team at Scherer Electric, we can help you set up both!

Why Make the Switch to Home Automation?

When people think about the benefits of home automation, the first thing that comes to mind is the convenience. We’re not knocking this—home automation systems are incredibly convenient. Just imagine how nice it would be to come home to a cool house on a hot summer day instead of a house that’s been baking in the hot Buffalo heat for hours while you were away. The convenience of a home automation system is a key factor, but don’t lose sight of the other benefits:

  • Savings: Home automation systems also help you save money. Since home automations systems monitor your energy usage and temperature settings from a smart thermostat, allowing you to turn your lights on or off, and to monitor any other technology remotely, you never have to worry about wasting energy again.
  • Safety: If you have a home automation system you can monitor your security camera, open garage doors, and even see who is opening your front door—all from your smart devices.

Always Choose a Professional Team

If you’re thinking about upgrading your home to a "smart" home automation system, there’s a high chance you’ve already looked into some smart devices. A lot of these smart devices boast about their ease of set up. While this is true, it’s still important to ensure that all your smart devices work well together. This is where the help of a technician is invaluable.

Our technicians have extensive knowledge of all the brands on the market because they’re experts. If you’re looking for a team that will ensure that everything in your home flows smoothly, then contact Scherer Electric.
