Smart Home Automation Tips
Finally, it’s Springtime. Even though these are uncertain times, flowers will bloom, the sun will warm the earth and we’ll feel like making our homes, fresh and comfortable, both inside and out.
This Spring, learn how you can prepare your smart home to enjoy convenience and safety with easy automations.
When packages arrive, your Wi-Fi doorbell helps you respond safely. A doorbell camera offers more than convenience these days, it’s a vital safety addition to your home security system. As we continue to stay home to stay safe, we are ordering online more than ever. From groceries to clothing and drugstore essentials, home delivery is up. The TELUS SmartHome Security Wi-Fi doorbell lets you set up automations to help keep you safe inside your home. For example, you can customize it with an automation that turns on a light when the doorbell is rung. That way, your delivery person knows you’ve responded and can drop your package and leave immediately. You can even view the live video of the delivery person, and say a quick “thank you and stay safe!” through the built-in speaker. Then, you can safely open your door to retrieve your delivery. During this pandemic, porch pirates are not on pause, but your Wi-Fi doorbell camera ensures you can respond quickly to receive your package safely.
Another great tip:
• Have the indoor chime turned off at certain times so it doesn’t wake up little ones having their nap.
Smart lighting automations to brighten your nights
As we are all spending more time at home, smart lighting can help keep your home safe and also enhance your surroundings, including your backyard and landscape. Smart lights that automatically come on at a pre-set time will help you enjoy evenings at home in your backyard. You can even automate them to come on brighter at sunset and then dim to conserve energy later at night, but still keep your environment safely lit. Once inside, bedtime scenarios can ensure bedside lights come on for comfortable reading and preparing for a good night’s sleep, then go off so you don’t sleep all night with a light on.
Another great tip:
• Add a motion sensor light near your side and back doors, garage windows, basement windows and even your backyard to ensure all intruders, even furry, four-legged ones, stay away.
Smart home security can offer peace of mind
Arming and disarming your home security system can be as easy as a click on your smartphone from wherever you are, in your home or outside. Your TELUS SmartHome Security smart generation panel is your control central for all your smart home automations. It’s easy-to-use and intuitive and, when it is not in use, your smart generation panel turns into a customizable photo frame.
Another great tip:
• If you’re relaxing in your backyard, you can view the status of all your doors on your smartphone. Convenience and control is always close at hand.
