Home automation sounds cool, and it actually is.
How about turning the room lights on by your voice command? It will be more like heaven after a tiring day at work. Isn’t it?
However, guys, this kind of setup takes up a lot of your energy and money. You have to do a lot of research on which software or automation you require for your home, set up a budget and many other works.
Ways to Automate Your Home Without Spending in a Lot
The truth is, not everyone could afford such systems. But this doesn’t mean you need to live in a less-smart home. In this blog post, I have compiled some of the amazing smart-home ideas that rightly fits for any medium-budget plan. They are as follows:
1. Window and Door Sensors
You can install window and door sensors, to know if someone is on your door. As soon as a person enters the house, a small chime sound will be heard which will notify you. Similarly, you can set up a sensor on the windows too to know if it was opened at any time.
2. Smart Lighting
I guess it’s the main entry thing for the homes, hehe like turn on the lights and fan as soon as you enter your room. Using the smart lighting setup, you can connect the bulb with the WiFi connection and do all the operation via the connected router. Even brands like Philips Hue, Cree is providing this service, and it’s pretty cheap too.
3. Security Cameras
Home security is another key thing that you can consider. Security cameras will let you know who all are coming and going out of your home, especially when you are far away from home.
4. Smoke Detectors
The conventional detectors send out loud siren, but what’s the use of this thing if there’s no one at home? Instead, you can go for a smart smoke detector which will send a local alarm and also notify you via smartphone. This way you will know the problem and get enough time to make fast decisions.
