6 Benefits of Smart Home Solutions

Woman Using Digital Tablet — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

Technology has made work easier for homeowners, and it is expected to advance further as the years go by. With modern technology, you can control your house via a smart device such as a mobile phone, laptop, or tablet.

Smart homes have proved to offer many benefits, and thus you should consider automating your house. The following are six benefits of smart home solutions.

1. Manage Various Devices

A smart home system can connect your home devices through one interface. All you need is to install an application in your smart device to control your appliances and devices, such as AC and alarm systems, remotely. In the app, you can tap into numerous functions to control a particular device.

For instance, if you forgot your lights on, you only need to scroll to the light section and turn it off. When you buy a new appliance, you can easily integrate it into the interface. The professionals who install smart technology can show you how to control various devices using the app.

2. Save Energy

You can save energy considerably using a smart home system. For example, a smart thermostat synced into the app enables you to control your home’s thermal condition from any location. So you can set the thermostat at low temperatures when you leave the house, and then adjust it when you are almost home.

You can also control your appliances to reduce their energy consumption. Most home automation systems provide users with energy consumption information. Thus, you can use this data to know which devices consume too much power and adjust them.

3. Enhance Security

Smart home systems have significantly enhanced security in many homes. For example, you can sync your cameras to your smart device, allowing you to view footage from anywhere. This will allow you to quickly note a strange activity and act accordingly. Smart alarm systems also allow you to get a notification on your smart device if any alarm in the house goes off.

Besides this benefit, you can also lock your doors remotely and unlock the door for anyone who is at the doorsteps when you are away. Therefore, you will always know who has entered your house.

4. Give You Peace of Mind

At times you might find it hard to concentrate at work when you have left your kids, pets, or an elderly family member in the house. You may even be forced to go back home during breaks to check on your loved ones. Fortunately, since smart cameras allow you to view the feeds through your smart device, you can monitor them remotely.

5. Save Time

If you always have a busy schedule, smart home solutions can come in handy and help you save time. For example, if you are running late in the store, you can set your oven to preheat for a few minutes before you get back home.

You can also use a smart slow cooker with fire safety features to start cooking while you are at work. The app will allow you to adjust the temperature and cooking time. You can set it to a warm mode or turn it off when the food is ready. Hence, dinner will be almost ready when you get home.

6. Detect Leak

Water damage can cost you a lot of money to repair. Therefore, you might benefit from a system that will notify you of any warning signs at an early stage. Your smart home system can include a leak detector and flood sensor to help you respond quickly.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    Todd and his staff were very professional and easy to work with during our recent project of updating our home entertainment system. I wouldn't think twice about referring A Tech Easy Living Store!!! Thanks

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
