Home Automation: 3 benefits of smart lighting

If you’ve ever wondered what a smart plug is, wonder no more. Read on to find out the benefits of smart lighting and what it can do to make your home more livable and safe.

Simple and app driven

The smart plug is simple, but it can become very useful for your home when connected to other devices. A smart plug is controlled by an app or your alarm keypad. You can plug in and control any equipment through using it. You can control it actively, or you can use automated settings to set up control it.

Connects your security system

You can connect it to your security system this way, for ease of control and access all around. If you use a lamp in a smart plug, it becomes a home security benefit, due to the fact that it can be hooked up to your security system.

Energy Savings

You can schedule your lamp. You can have it come on at certain times for safety, or in conjunction with a motion sensor. You can also set it to come on when you are on your way home. You can also use smart plugs in your kitchen. Program your living room lights to come on when you start your day, and automate when they shut off at the end of the day. You can even set up your small applicances this way, using your smartphone.

Smart plugs can automatically turn off the appliances that run all the time, thus saving you money. And if you use GuardMe Security, you can set them up to switch off when you turn your security system, which makes a lot of sense, really. So, as you can see, GuardMe Security can help not only with your home alarm system, but for saving on energy costs and automating your life as well.
