In this age when going green is increasingly becoming more than just a trend, efficient and eco-friendly technologies play a crucial role towards home sustainability. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s report this year, energy efficiency has significantly decreased energy consumption in homes that it offsets more than 70% of the growth in both the number of households and the size of dwellings since 1980. This paints a picture of sustainable homes made possible by integrating efficient technology into people’s everyday living. One of the latest — and best — such technologies to hit the market is home automation as it marries utmost sustainability and convenience in any home. Make the best out of your Honeywell security alarm and enjoy the comfort of Honeywell home automation. You will be reaping the benefits of sustainability with an efficient and smart home security system.
Attain sustainability at home with a smart home security system
Appliances and other energy-consuming things that you have in your home make everyday tasks possible and a whole lot easier, making them an indispensable part of any household. Given the sheer number of these appliances and gadgets, coupled with people’s busy lives, it is a most-oft forgotten thing to switch off and unplug those that are not in use. On a collective level, this results in accumulated greenhouse gas emissions, which lead to global warming. This is how unnecessary energy use ends up on a wider scale and this is where a smart home security system comes in. This kind of system allows appliances to be remotely switched on and off and even to be automated according to the homeowner’s daily routine, paving the way for a more efficient use of energy and less destruction to the planet.
Live in a secure and sustainable home with Honeywell
To put this in more specific details, here is how Honeywell security alarm and home automation achieves this objective of creating a sustainable home through energy efficiency.
Make the most out of smart home automation with the new Honeywell Lynx L7000, valued at $264.95.
Lower your HVAC costs
According to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, residential buildings make up for an estimated 17 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. and half of that is from HVAC equipment and lighting. Reduce your HVAC use with Honeywell Z-Wave thermostats that you can remotely turn on and off and program accordingly. Turn on your equipment only when you are at home or when you are about to arrive so you return to a comfortable home. Schedule your heater so the temperature adjusts to a more energy-saving one for when you have gone asleep. You can even receive alerts when temperature settings are changed. In the same way, this home automation also lets you manage your ceiling fans for an efficient cooling system.
Take charge of your lights
This is another item that most people tend to overlook. Because of jam-packed schedules, it can be difficult to remember to switch off the lights before heading out the door. With a smart home automation system, you will not only get to turn off the lights even when you’re already at work, you can also program your outdoor lighting to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise. Doing this saves you energy costs and prolongs bulb life, contributing even more to a more sustainable living. What is more, this secures your property for when you go away on vacation. Simply use this to send off signals that you are home to avoid being a target of burglars looking for empty houses.
Effectively control the shades
More than bringing ambiance and privacy into your home, programmable shades help you reduce cooling, heating, and lighting costs. With a touch of a button, lower them to keep the sunlight out in summer. Raise them in cooler weather to let the sun warm and light up your home.
Stay on top of everything by setting scenes and schedules
Streamline all of the above mentioned equipment and more by creating scenes and schedules according to your routine. Schedule devices to switch on or off at your preferred times and days. For instance, set a daytime scene where the lights turn on when you wake up and a bedtime scene where they turn off at a fixed time for seven days a week. This way, you effortlessly reduce energy consumption without making drastic changes to your lifestyle.
