New Apps and Appliances Enable Budget-Friendly Home Automation in San Francisco
Modern home automation systems let you control nearly every aspect of your home from the palm of your hand. Originally, home automation systems were installed with an element known as a designated terminal. This terminal linked up lights, audio systems, security cameras, door locks, and more. These systems were expensive to install and wire throughout the home, however, putting them out of reach for most homeowners. Fortunately, thanks to the ever-growing capabilities of smart phones and wireless technology, home automation systems are finally within budget for many Bay Area homeowners – even if you don’t own your own start up.
Last year, both Staples and Home Depot released their newest versions of affordable home automation technology. Both Connect and Wink, respectively, harness the power of smart phone apps to control smart technology throughout the home. From smart appliances to home theater installation, Home Depot’s Wink controls roughly 60 different smart devices, while Staples’s Connect can control 150, all from one user-friendly app.
The most cost effective aspect of these systems is that they do not require installation; instead, they wirelessly connect to devices that are already enabled, like Phillips Hue light bulbs or Kwikset locks. These systems are equally handy and affordable for both home and business owners. Homeowners can link up their home theater, lights, door locks, and thermostats, and business owners can enjoy the benefits of conference room automation or security systems at a low cost.
