Doesn’t it bother you when you come back from a vacation in Europe after midnight to find your entire neighborhood asleep and dark? You must make your way to your house in a pitch-black driveway. Then you must step off your car and open the garage’s gate. Then when you and your family climb up the steps to your home’s main door you all must be extra careful to not slip in the dark and spend a few more minutes waiting until one of you unlocks the door. Finally, inside, you try to look for the light switches and have the heat and humidity of a closed house welcome you. Doesn’t that sound typical? Also, who wants so much inconvenience right as they return home?
This scenario doesn’t just take place for you when you are back from vacations but a part of it does take place every time you return home from work or anywhere in general. However, if you are the owner of a smart home system in Dubai, your life isn’t this inconvenient. Rather your whole automated house springs to life to welcome you. Here is how:
Outdoor lighting isn’t just for extravagance but it plays a major role in safety and security as well. The system automatically switches on after dusk and off at dawn. With landscape lights when you return home you find your porch lit up properly. You can easily drive to the garage and also no more worry about tripping in the dark as all dark pockets and stairs of the yard are lit.
Home automation means no more dependence on keys. You don’t have to stand at your house’s door and open it with the keys; rather you can order the smart lock to open with a click of a button on your connected smart device. That makes things a lot simpler.
Automated garage door
The smart garage door opens automatically to let your car pass. All you have to do is click the button on your smartphone to signal the garage door to open. Not only does that require way less effort than manually maneuvering the door open but it also saves you the time.
Not just the exterior of your house but the interior also lights up on your arrival. As smart lights connected to motion sensors automatically turn on when they detect your presence. This way when you return home you don’t have to fumble for the light switches.
Another amazing feature offered is by smart thermostats. These can be set to lower the chill in the house when you aren’t around or scheduled to start the air conditioner ten minutes before you return home. Because in a country as hot as the UAE, no one wants to have a warm indoor atmosphere greet him as he steps into the house.
