Total Automation

Automation is, unsurprisingly, one of the two main characteristics of home automation. Home automation refers to the ability to program and schedule events for the devices on your home network. Smart Homes of Alabama strives to offer valuable and creative solutions to make your life better. With our home automation systems, a new level of home comfort could be just a touch away.

Home Automation

The programming may include time-related commands, such as having your lights turn on or off at specific times each day. It can also include non-scheduled events, such as turning on all the lights in your home when your security system alarm is triggered.

Is that west-facing window letting in too much light? Plug your motorized blinds into a “smart” outlet and program it to close at noon each day. Do your kids come home from school in the afternoons? Program your home automation system to unlock the front door for them and lock it up again when they are safely inside.

Remote Access

The second main characteristic of cutting-edge home automation is remote monitoring and access. While a limited amount of one-way remote monitoring has been possible for some time, it’s only since the rise in smartphones and tablets that we could connect to our home networks while we’re away truly.

With a Smart Homes automation system, you can use any Internet-connected device to view and control the system itself and any attached devices that you would like to link it to.

Monitoring apps can provide a wealth of information about your home. They allow you to check the current moment’s status and give a detailed history of what has happened up until now. You can check your security system’s status, whether the lights are on, whether the doors are locked, what the current temperature of your home is, and much more. Forget to close that garage door – don’t worry, you can set reminders and close it on your command. That simple!

We Are Here To Help

Smart Homes of Alabama’s top priority is making your home a safe place and giving you the best security cameras to do so. With cameras as part of your home automation system, you can even pull up real-time video feeds in your home while you’re away. If you need to see if your teens are staying out of trouble or any naughty pets are on the furniture, we’ve got you covered.

Simple notifications can be set up to help you perform many essential tasks. You can program your system to send you a text message or email whenever your security system registers a potential problem, from severe weather alerts to motion detector warnings to fire alarms.

You can also get notified for more mundane events, such as programming your “smart” front door lock to let you know when your loved ones return home.

In addition to arming and disarming your security system, you can reprogram the scheduling, lock and unlock doors, reset the thermostat and adjust the lights all from your phone, from anywhere in the world. Home automation puts you in control while giving you virtually limitless options as smart technology expands.
