If you’re new to smart home automation, there’s an entire world of options to discover for your Colorado residence. Automation adds elegance and convenience to any home, and almost any electronic can be automated with help from an expert integrator.
As an automation expert servicing Cherry Hills, CO, and the surrounding areas, we’ve helped homeowners sync their appliances and devices under one Savant system. With these automation ideas, you’ll eliminate countless small tasks from your day.
What can you automate? Find out below!
Circadian lighting, also known as tunable lighting or human-centric lighting, replicates the sun’s natural cycle across the sky. With the right color temperature and brightness inside your home, you’ll stay energized during the day and feel sleepier at night. Automated smart LEDs steadily adjust their appearance throughout the day, starting cool and bright in the morning and turning warm and soft in the evening, like the golden hour outside.
Imagine this: your living room starts to become uncomfortably warm in the afternoon, so your thermostat tells the ceiling fan to turn on. Or as you walk into the bathroom, the fan starts once you shut the door. We can set sensors to trigger fans and timers to turn them off after a period of inactivity.
Automation makes shower time feel like you’re visiting your favorite luxury hotel. When the shower door opens, shower lights and the overhead fan can instantly turn on. Adjust the lights’ color or set bulbs to flicker after ten minutes in the shower. Tell your voice assistant to play an album, and music will flow out of waterproof bathroom speakers.
As you leave the house, sensors can tell your garage door to instinctively lower and lock. When you set your system to ‘Away’ or ‘Night,’ the garage door will instantly lower, too.
Whether it’s a walk-in or hallway closet, you’ll always find what you’re looking for more easily with automated lights. Open the door, and the closet light will automatically turn on. Close the door, and it’s off.
You can schedule landscape lights through the Savant system app to turn on at sunset and turn off before sunrise. A sensor in the driveway will illuminate driveway lights as you pull in, staying on for fifteen minutes.
Your windows and thermostats can work together to always ensure your home’s comfortably heated or cooled—all the while saving energy. When a window has been open for more than five minutes, for instance, the window sensor will signal your thermostat to turn off. When you close all the windows, the thermostat will turn back on. Heat sensors will prompt motorized shades to lower at the hottest times of day, keeping rooms cool.
Smart locks can be set to lock after a door closes or when you tap ‘Away’ on your system app. Amp up security with door sensors that tell you when the front door’s been opened.
Yes, even your morning brew can be automated with a smart coffee pot. Wolf, a manufacturer of smart appliances, builds automated coffee pots you can sync to a smart system like Savant. You’ll need to add coffee grinds and water the night before, but while you’re just waking in bed the following morning, tap your phone and let your coffee pot downstairs get to work.
Stay on top of all household to-dos by adding even your dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer to your automation system. Check your Savant system’s icons on the tablet or wall panel to see if the cycle’s finished or wait to hear an alert.
We’ve only skimmed the surface of all we can automate with Savant. Homeowners can also sync multi-room speakers, TVs, home theaters, security devices, and more.
