How to Save Energy this Winter with Home Automation
As the temperature drops, our energy bills can begin to creep up higher in efforts to stay cozy. Home automation devices from ABC Fire and Burglar Alarm can help you with that. Our smart home automation system knows what is happening around your home and uses that knowledge to save energy when you don’t need to use it. Here are a few ways we can help you save this season.
Smart Thermostat Schedules
If you have ever had the task of programming a thermostat on the wall, you will love our smart thermostat and mobile app. It makes it easy to create custom schedules, fine-tuned to save energy when you are not there while still making things comfortable when you are all from your phone.
In addition to scheduling, our smart thermostat also saves energy by reacting to your activity. Our Geo-Services feature uses your smartphone location to determine whether you’re home or away and turns your heating to either ‘comfort’ or ‘savings’ accordingly. Come back to a cozy home without having to let the heater run while you are out.
Lightbulbs have come a long way in terms of energy efficiency, but you can still cut down on waste by automating them. Our smart lights can turn on and off automatically according to the time of day, or when it gets dark, or whether you are home. They are also easy to control with Scenes: our quick, multi-device commands that make controlling your home easy.
