In our ever-evolving world of technology, smart home automation has become more than just a convenience; it's now a necessity for families looking to enhance their lives. By automating your home, you increase your security, convenience, and energy efficiency of your home in a way that lets your home do the work. Home automation takes care of the important stuff, so you don’t have to, which means more time to be lazy with your home, so you can spend the extra time doing what you love with your family. Let's delve into the four essential automations that every family needs, and explore how Shelly devices can make them a reality.
Security Systems - Protecting What Matters Most
Your family's safety is paramount. Smart security systems offer peace of mind, real-time monitoring, and remote access, ensuring that your loved ones and belongings are safeguarded without you having to stress. Smart security devices let you know what’s happening with your home when you’re away. Shelly's array of devices, including the Shelly BLU Motion Sensor and Shelly Door/Window 2 Sensor, provide crucial components to build your own security system.
Install motion sensors in key areas and door/window sensors to detect unauthorized access. These sensors are compact, easy to install, and work seamlessly with your home's Wi-Fi network. When integrated with smart home platforms, such as Apple HomeKit, you can receive instant alerts on your smartphone when any unusual activity is detected. This level of security automation is invaluable, especially when you're away from home.
Smart Garage Doors - Hassle-Free Entry and Exit
Raise your hand if you've ever wondered whether you left the garage door open. Smart garage door automation is the solution to this common concern. Shelly's smart garage door controllers, like the Shelly Plus 1, allow you to remotely open, close, and monitor your garage door from anywhere. No more turning around to head back home to check the status of your garage door; simply use your smartphone to take control.
These devices can also be programmed to automatically close the door after a set period, ensuring security and peace of mind. They're compatible with various garage door openers so you don’t have to worry about completely replacing your garage doors when switching to smart garage doors, making it a versatile and cost-effective choice for any family.
Smart Lighting - Setting the Perfect Ambiance
Lighting sets the mood in your home. Smart lighting automation allows you to adjust the brightness and color of your lights to create the ideal ambiance for every occasion. Shelly offers a range of smart lighting solutions, including Shelly Bulbs, Shelly Dimmer 2, Shelly Plus Wall Dimmer, and Shelly RGBW2.
For instance, using the Shelly Dimmer 2, you can schedule your lights to gradually brighten in the morning, simulating a sunrise to wake you gently. In the evening, it can dim the lights for a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Plus, these devices are compatible with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home, making it simple to control your lights with just a voice command.
Smart Outlets - Mastering Energy Efficiency
In today's eco-conscious world, energy efficiency is a priority. Smart outlets, such as the Shelly Plus Plug US, enable you to remotely control and monitor the energy consumption of connected devices. You can schedule the activation and deactivation of appliances, ensuring they're only running when needed.
For example, if you frequently forget to turn off the coffee maker or space heater, Shelly Plus Plug US can do it for you. You can also track energy usage to make informed decisions on where to reduce consumption, ultimately saving on your utility bills.
