But of all the house automation ideas out there, which ones are the best for when you are away from home?
Read on to find out.
Install Smart Power Strips
Back in the day, people would leave their TV or outside lights on when they went away.
But that wastes a lot of energy. And, intruders won’t be so easily fooled.
Instead, pick up some smart power strips when you go shopping for travel gadgets before you head out for vacation.
All your tech goes into standby mode when you aren’t using it. But that still costs you power. Smart power strips automatically shut off appliances to save you money while you are away.
You can also use the app to turn lights on and off even if you are thousands of miles away.
This is a better solution than a simple timer. Burglars will notice if your living room light comes on at 5 pm every day. With the smart power strips, you can turn on one light at 3 pm in one room one day and turn it on at 4:35 the next day.
But you don’t have to sit with your app open when you are traveling. You can schedule your lights in advance. And you can decide how long you want them to stay on.
Notion Motion Sensor
But turning lights on doesn’t give you total peace of mind when you’re on holiday.
The Notion sensor is a tiny sensor that you can put pretty much anywhere. It will send a notification to your phone if it detects any motion. Stick it by your front door, windows, or back door.
This is one of the simplest home automation ideas so that you feel close to home, even from across the globe.
