The 21st century has given us a lot of technology, and home automation is one of the most valued additions to modern technology for the homeowner this decade. Using z-wave technology, and an intuitive Building 36 system, it’s easy to control many aspects of your home with a simple remote or phone app. With home automation, you no longer have to worry about leaving the lights on or whether or not you adjusted the thermostat. Many home operations can be controlled with the Building 36 system, giving homeowners both peace of mind and total control.
You’ve probably seen shows and movies where someone forgot to turn off the lights in their home, but they’re already down the road. They pull out their cellphone, and with a few taps of their fingers, they sigh in relief to know the lights are now off. This is the technology that home automation offers, thanks to Building 36 and their z-wave technology system.
The functions of home automation
Most technical functions of the home can be programmed to home automation. Some of these features include:
- Plug loads
- Video cameras
- Entry and garage doors
- Some appliances
- And more!
Life is much simpler when you’re able to remotely control the daily functions in your home with home automation.
Building 36 and z-wave technology
So how does it work? According to the Building 36 website, “The huB36 gateway is the brains of our system. It can communicate with over 200 z-wave devices in your home to keep you connected from anywhere, at any time.” Basically, any eligible components of your home you wish you have automated will be set up with a z-wave device. Then, you can remotely control these components through communication with the remote and the z-wave device.
Functions can be controlled through a tablet, computer, or cellphone. You can also choose to receive notifications via text or e-mail to make sure you are keeping up with what’s going on inside your home. You can also schedule the z-wave devices to keep up with you or your family’s lifestyle. For instance, you can schedule thermostats to adjust temperatures at certain hours of the day, or for lights to come on and turn off at certain hours.
Why home automation?
Peace of mind, security, and comfort are just a few reasons many are choosing to have home automation installed in their homes. Home automation offers features that work for you economically, as well. A statistic presented by Building 36: “On average, homeowners save 12% of their estimated energy usage during warming seasons by using a connected thermostat.”
