Smart Home Ideas
Below are a few scenarios to help get a better sense of the possibilities. This is what it could be like when you live in a truly smart home.
When you leave home and exit the geofence you setup (a location on the map), your smart home will lock all doors, turn off all the lights, turn down the thermostat and arm your security system. This same method can be used when you return as well.
Give each family member their own code to open the front door so you can get notified whenever someone has arrived.
Make sure to get a notification if someone has opened the liqueur cabinet or any other door you don’t want them to get into.
Fire alarm going off but you’re not home? Receive an immediate notification on your phone and call 911 ASAP.
Have an elderly person you constantly worry about? Give them a panic button that will notify you if something is wrong. Setup motion detectors that will turn on the lights wherever they go so they don’t have to fumble for switches in the dark.
Get instant notifications, set off an alarm and start blinking all the lights if your cameras detect motion or when your door/window sensors are tripped.
Water leaks can cause significant damage and cost thousands to repair if not taken care of immediately. Luckily your smart home has the ability to both detect the leak and to shut off the water main while sending you a notification.
Audio & Video
Movie night is here and what better way to kick things off than with a single push of a button on your phone, touchpad, or remote. With this one button you can dim the lights, close the blinds, turn on the TV and audio system and make sure its tuned to your favorite channel.
Date night has finally arrived and you just can’t wait to spend some well deserved quality time together. So instead of stressing about how to set the mood, why don’t you let your smart home do the heavy lifting while you prepare a romantic dinner? “Alexa: Turn on Date Night. “
This will turn the colour of the light to a romantic red, start playing your favourite playlist on the speakers at a pre-set volume and turn on the fireplace for that final perfect touch.
Want to play some Grand Theft Auto? Simply turn on your Xbox or PlayStation using the gamepad and your smart home will make sure the TV and audio system will turn on to the right inputs and also make sure to set the lights just right for the full immersive gaming experience.
Its party time! Blast your favourite tunes through all the zones in the house and rotate the colours of your LED strips to your heart’s content.
