Home Automation vs. Home control – understand the distinction
Understanding the Difference between Home Automation and Home Control Everyone understands that your lifestyle and living standard vastly improves when the technology behind home automation becomes implemented in your daily life. The interactive element, strictly on its own, creates new efficiencies that are inarguable; activate your sprinkler from a smartphone? Grab your tablet and TIVO your favorite show from the office? Start a movie in your home theater and watch the lights dim as the curtain goes up — and watch them brighten again as the credits roll? As our applications become more powerful, we discover the technology itself creates value in our lives and in how we interact with it — and with one another.
At Seagull Electronics, we understand that the technology is meant to be a boon, not a hurdle to overcome. That’s why we offer whole-house installation and implementation, bringing you the promise of the technology without the fear of having to wade through it all on your own. Part of this is understanding the difference between home automation, and home control.
Home control is just what it sounds like; you have every option mentioned above, right at your fingertips whenever you need it. But home automation is the next step: creating a “hands-free” home control experience. Imagine motion sensors that detect movement as you walk from room to room, or even outside, reacting to your presence to perform pre-programmed tasks such as turning lights or heat on and off, following you with the music you prefer, raising and lowering blinds to your inputted preferences?
When technology integrates with your daily routine and knows how you like things, life within the home automation world becomes truly effortless. And it is a process that’s not merely efficient with your time — it can also lower utility bills.
Home automation is here, and home and business owners are enjoying it today. Contact us and learn how integrating technology into your lifestyle can improve it!
