Simplify Your Fall Routine Changes with Smart Home Automation
As Summer Comes to an End, Control4 Can Help You Start Fall on the Right Foot
The summer is coming to an end, which means vacation is over and routines are changing. Maybe your kids are preparing for school, or perhaps you’re transitioning to a more rigorous work schedule. Whatever the changes, starting new routines can often be difficult. Smart home automation can help ease the transition to new schedules and make a hectic day a little more fun for you and the family.
As a certified Control4 dealer, AV Specialists can help you take advantage of smart home automation to make new routines a breeze in Belleair, FL. Learn how below!
Jumpstart Your Morning with Scheduled Lights and Shades
While most of us take advantage of lax sleep schedules in the summer, the fall calls for much more structure—especially if you have kids who are starting school. In order to prepare for a full day of activities, you and the family must get to bed at a proper hour. To help facilitate sleep, schedule your home lights and motorized shades to gradually dim and lower about an hour before bedtime. Likewise, you can schedule the lights and shades in your bedroom and your kids’ bedrooms to gradually brighten and rise just before your alarm goes off to help everyone wake up to an energized home.
Use Custom Smart Home Scenes to Relax After a Long Day
After a long day of work and school, you and the family deserve an evening of relaxation. Control4 home automation can lend a hand to make the transition from work to play so much easier with custom one-tap scenes. For instance, once you end the workday, simply open your Control4 mobile app or use your preferred Control4 system device to tap the “Relax” scene, which will trigger your patio lights to brighten, the pool and spa to turn on, and a playlist to stream overhead on your connected speakers. This is just one of virtually limitless combinations you can enjoy with one-tap smart home scenes.
Prepare Your Home for Sleep in Just a Button Tap
Before going to bed, you must make sure lights and TVs are off, window shades are closed, and thermostats are set—on top of making sure your kids get to bed, pets are fed, doors are locked, and more. Control4 home automation can help ease your bedtime routine by powering down the home in one fell swoop. With a “Goodnight” scene, Control4 will lower all the window shades in the home, adjust all your house lights, turn off TVs and entertainment systems, and set your thermostats to the desired temperature. No more getting up to check that the porch light is on or the kitchen window shades are closed. You can prepare your home for sleep from the comfort of your bedroom.
