What Is a Home Automation System?, Colts Neck, New Jersey

A home automation system utilizes technology that can be programmed to do what you want at specified times or in response to certain events. The technology has been around for decades, and implementations vary in complexity with some of the most basic examples including HVAC systems with programmable thermostats. “Smart home” technology has become even more sophisticated with the advent of mobile connectivity, which allows users to control aspects of their homes from anywhere in the world.

Blackpoint Technology in Rumson, NJ, specializes in creating custom home automation systems for which the possibilities are nearly limitless. To give you an idea of what’s possible, here are just a few examples of home automation:

  • Automatic Lighting: Never again will you worry if you remembered to turn the lights off. Automatic lighting can be programmed to turn on and off at specified times. It can even respond to motion sensors and be set to only turn on when people are present, such as in closets or bathrooms.

  • home automation systemClimate Control: You’ve probably already seen this type of automation, which has been increasing in popularity in recent years. Program your thermostat to activate at certain times of day, allowing you to come home to a comfortable temperature while saving money when you aren’t home. Some systems can integrate with mobile devices as well.

  • Internet of Things: The “Internet of Things,” or IoT for short, refers to the networking capabilities of home electronics. The full potential of IoT is continually being innovated upon and explored, but one example is the refrigerator that keeps track of your inventory—and can automatically order more. IoT can also refer to smart home surveillance technology, which can be programmed to send you text or email alerts in case of suspicious activity.

The most sophisticated home automation systems let you control your home from wherever you are, and always stay apprised of what’s happening on your property. If you’re interested in integrating smart home capabilities on your property, you can reach Blackpoint Technology for a consultation at (732) 784-8429.
