Yes, believe it or not, - the operational costs of an ordinary home is much more than a smart home. The intelligent technology is not only the key to peace of mind and a faster & easier lifestyle, it can save you a lot on your insurance and utility costs.

The following are four ways in which home automation can change your life

1. Home automation helps you in controlling multiple household components from a single unit. You can control your lights, temperature, water sprinklers, humidifiers, your electrical appliances and gadgets from a single control panel that can be your smartphone, tablet, computer or smart switch panel.

2. With the intelligent system, you can time your actions for a better experience. You can time your lights and HVAC. With the lights switched on and the room adjusted to a comfortable temperature, you will feel more welcomed at home. The advanced technology adapts itself to the time of the day and the season to make you feel more comfortable. Likewise, you can program the water sprinklers in the garden to water your plants at select times. And yes, you can also automate your drapes to open or close according to the time of the day. Imagine waking up to the soothing sound of music with the drapes slowly opening! All these and more are possible in smart homes. With every detail taken care of for comfort, convenience, security and energy savings, you can live the life you have always wanted with reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills.

3. Safety, security and peace of mind.

Saving a lot on your energy bills - this is not the only highlight of home automation system. Home automation makes life safe and secure for you and your loved ones with advanced features like entrance management, video door phone, 24/7 video surveillance, fire/gas alert, burglar alarm. With live video feed, you can monitor your home while you are away. So, even if you have kids or elderly parents at home, the new-age technology always makes you stay closer to them and assist them whenever necessary. With the panic button, they can alert the security personnel if they sense anything wrong. Your home is secured against all odds as you adapt to the smart technology to shield your home.

4. The best part of home automation is that the solutions can be customized to meet the need of different individuals and different households. The new-age solutions are flexible and offer interoperability to help the people live a more comfortable life with fewer worries.

One option that is great but requires a bit more work is using raspberry pi home automation. This option requires a little more tech savy user, and is a bit more difficult to get up and running than the typical off the shelf home automation system. 

Home automation systems can be customized according to the likes and needs of different people and can include particular features and omit others. However, the most important function of the smart home automation technology remains same - complete control, security, convenience, luxury and reduced energy bills!
