Gone are the days that you need to get up to turn the air conditioner up or down. Not sure if you turned the light off downstairs before you went to sleep? No need to get up to check anymore. Let apps help you control all the systems and appliances in your house from your phone.
Have you had that uncertain feeling driving to work that you might've left the coffee maker turned on? Before, you either had to decide to be late for work and turn around or think all day that you might've left it on and worry about what could be happening. However, nowadays you can control home appliances with smartphone. With great home control apps like Wemo, you can turn your plugs off and on even when you're not home. Applications now have the technology to control any device through mobile phones, so you can feel relaxed about saving electricity as well as keeping your home safe while your away.
In addition to apps being able to control power plugs in your home, you can also learn how to control fan and light with mobile phones. App controlled lighting systems like Philips Hue allows you full control of the lighting system in your home. With apps that let you control house lights with iPhone, you can change brightness or turn off and on lights both outside and inside your home. Similarly, you can use an app like Air Patrol to control your air conditioning, so you never have to get up to change the thermostat again. These apps allow you to have a home that can be set to timers or changed anytime you feel like it on your phone.
Of course, instead of having a couple of apps to control appliances and systems in your house, you can have a home automation mobile app that does it all in one app. Smart home apps like Smartthings features the ability to control multiple devices. In conclusion, with home automation mobile apps, you can have a control switch for your garage, air conditioner, plugs, and entertainment system and be productive and energy-efficient all in one application.
