What if your security, lights, music and devices all did exactly what you wanted simultaneously? One of the top advantages of a smart home is using multitasking modes called “scenes”. This basically means your smart home can perform a series of handy tasks all in a row.
A series of custom automation functions can be created to suit your lifestyle. You may want these scenes set for certain times of the day, or have actions triggered by sensors.
7am, Good morning
Internet radio or your music playlist is your wake up call, bedroom and bathroom lights gradually get brighter, a smart plug turns on your coffee machine for your morning brew… make it easier to get ready in the morning
8am, I’m heading out
Lights and audiovisual devices turned off, automated blinds closed and security system activated… ready for the daily routine at work or school
6pm, Welcome home
Driveway and garage lights on, TV set to show the evening news, heating or cooling activated, security system disarmed… put up your feet at the end of the day
Kitchen lights turned on for preparation and clean-up, dining area lights dimmed and speakers playing gentle music, perhaps the gas fireplace turned on too… set the perfect atmosphere
10pm, Good night
Main indoor/outdoor lights turned off, other lights near bathrooms dimmed, automated blinds close and security system bedtime zones activated, heating or cooling set to the ideal sleeping temperature… rest easy
A dimly lit pathway to the kitchen turned on so you don’t stumble down the hallway or stairs in the dark… keeping you safe and comfortable
Saturday night party
Outdoor pathway and front door lights turned on, security system off, music playing throughout the house and courtyard, coloured lights set to showcase water features or artwork… focus on the food and drinks
Time for a vacation
Energy saving features turned on, appliances and audio visual devices turned off, security and surveillance system activated, automated blinds and lights set to random so your house appears occupied… leave your worries behind
