Technology is evolving so quickly that it is hard to stay up-to-date. Today, we talk about home automation systems. What is it exactly, and why is it beneficial for you? This article sheds light on this new technology.
The Definition of Automation
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, automation refers to an automatically controlled operation of an apparatus, process, or system by mechanical or electronic devices that take the place of human labour. It relates to automatic management techniques applied to the home (comfort, security, communication).
The Google Nest automation system is designed to simplify the operation of your home, whether in terms of security, comfort, or entertainment.
Google Nest and Its Security Component
In terms of security, Google Nest offers clear advantages. The Nest Protect smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm are a hit with many customers.
Have you burned your meal? Say goodbye to those days when you had to run between the oven and the alarm, trying to save your meal and shut off the ringing of the alarm while trying to calm your crying baby and keep your barking dog quiet.
With a home automation system, your cellphone warns you with a human voice that it detects smoke and to verify its cause. The alarm shines a yellow glow and calmly warns you, telling you where the problem is.
If the level of smoke or carbon monoxide reaches a dangerous level, Nest Protect rings the alarm and blinks red.
Also, Nest Protect sends you a message on your smartphone when its batteries are low.
You control everything from your phone, even when you are out of the house.
Other aspects of the Google Nest security system are the video ringtone and the interior or exterior security camera.
Comfort with Google Nest
For greater comfort, Nest Learning Thermostat is the perfect tool. While making your life easier, it helps you save energy.
Once your Nest thermostat has been installed, raise or lower the temperature manually during the first week. During that week, the thermostat learns about the lifestyle and temperature habits that you like and creates a program based on them.
Furthermore, with the help of its sensors and the location system of your phone, the Nest thermostat knows when you are out and adjusts the temperature consequently to save energy.
With the Nest application, you can also adjust the temperature remotely from your phone.
Nest Learning Thermostat is designed to help you save energy. When you modify the temperature to save energy, a tree leaf appears on the thermostat. This leaf appears at different temperatures for different families, according to your lifestyle habits.
Your Nest report can show you your energy consumption habits, allowing you to pinpoint the moments when you use the most and to find solutions to consume less.
The Nest Learning Thermostat detects if problems occur, and it sends you a notification or an alert on your smartphone. For example, suppose your furnace stops working, and the temperature is plummeting dangerously. You will receive an alert on your phone, and you can return home and take care of the situation immediately.
The system also notifies you if the heating or the air conditioning has problems or failures. These can be warning signs that your heating or air conditioning system needs maintenance.
The Nest thermostat is compatible with most residences.
