Continued from above

Usually all you need is a computer or a mobile phone to easily control and monitor the many aspects of your home. Home automation can also be enhanced with a home security system to offer added security for your home and family.

There are a number of competent home automation companies that exist today. However, these home automation services can vary greatly in features offered and installation costs. Before selecting a home automation system, you should consider the following:

  • Usability. How technically savvy do you have to be to operate the home automation product? If it's too complicated, it's just not worth it.
  • Customer service. If you have a question or problem with your home automation system, will there be someone who can quickly answer your questions?
  • Guarantee. If the home automation system doesn't work, or you change your mind, can you return it for your money back?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Home Automation solutions available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right home automation system that you're looking for!

Benefits of a Home Automation System

Our home is our castle, the archive of our lives, the repository of our treasures, and with ever-rising energy costs, an increasing expense. A home automation system can provide you with peace of mind and lower our energy consumption, a good thing for our environment and your wallet.

Compared with earlier generation home-monitoring systems, the benefits of the new generation of home automation systems - systems that enable us to interact, directly and in real time - with our most expensive possession, can be equated to the difference between owning a horse and buggy and a hybrid automobile.

Today's home automation systems allow more control over home heating and cooling than programmable thermostats that can only follow preset instructions. With most new home automation systems, a Smartphone call from you can bring your home to your preferred at-home temperature settings, rather relying on the clock to make the changes. Suspect someone is cranking up the heat or air conditioning when he is home and you are not? Home automation systems can monitor and report on this.

Going away for a long weekend? Why have your electric water heater working to provide a hot shower unnecessarily. Either access your automation system through your computer before you leave, or use your Smartphone to turn off the water heater until you are on your way back home. Add-on water sensor devices available on today's generation of home automation systems can text or email you that the hot water tank has sprung a leak, so you can call the plumber who you can let into your home using add-on remotely controlled door locks. Not only can you turn on outside and inside lights for the plumber, but with available add-on outside and inside remote controllable, streaming video cameras, you could watch him come, go and make repairs.

Available add-on system sensors can alert you, and potentially your home alarm monitoring service if you choose to subscribe to it, to an unexpected rise in a room's temperature, possibly indicating a fire. They can also detect smoke or a rise in carbon dioxide (CO) levels whether you are at home, asleep, or out and about.

Door and window monitoring devices, including doggy-door monitoring, garage door opening and closing, glass break sensors, curtain movement sensors and motion detectors are also features. Some of them come standard and others are add-on devices, and are features that be accessed for arming and disarming through a central monitoring station in your home through your computer and Wi-fi. These same features can be accessed, as an add-on service, through a keychain device.

Provided you had the iron or the coffee pot plugged into an electrical outlet connected to the home monitoring system, you could be absolutely certain, via your Smartphone, neither was left on and likely to burn the house down.

It is also possible to realize a savings on your home insurance premiums when you have a home automation system in place, yet another benefit of owning a new generation home automation system.
