Learn Why Home Automation Continues To Grow In Popularity


The home automation industry has simplified countless tasks for us. Most smart devices can be controlled with your phone, tablet, or voice. 

To think that not too long ago, if you wanted to change the channel or adjust the volume on your TV, you had to walk to the TV and do it manually. 


With so many companies competing in the market, options are more affordable. The holidays are a great time to snatch up attractive deals on smart TVs, home voice assistants, home theaters, video doorbells, and more. 


Home Automation Examples That Simplify and Streamline

  • Digital personal assistants, like Alexa or Google Home. They integrate with a multitude of devices, allowing them to control your thermostat, lighting, entertainment system, and more. 
  • Home security systems. Monitor your security cameras and even check in on your pets while you’re out.
  • Video doorbells. See who’s at the door, and even speak to them without being home.
  • Garage doors. Control and monitor it from your device.
  • Lights. Control them remotely. You can even set them to dim closer to bedtime to help you wind down for the night. 
  • Blinds/curtains. Open and close them with an app or your voice. You can even program them to open and close at set times.
  • Smart Door locks. Now you can unlock or lock your door remotely with an app and get notified if you forgot to lock it.  
  • Home theater. Adjust the sound, lighting, and what you’re watching from one device.
  • Home safety alerts. Receive alerts on your phone for leaking water, smoke, and carbon monoxide.
  • Smart appliances. From coffee makers to fridges, you can control them with your phone. Imagine getting an alert telling you the fridge door was left open or that you’re out of milk. Yep-they can do that and more.
  • Smart sprinkler systems. 

It’s no wonder the market continues to grow, as home automation is almost expected nowadays, and for many, it’s become more of a necessity than a luxury.
