One of the great advantages of owning a smart home is that it can also help keep your family safe and secure. Thanks to Z-Wave wireless home automation technology, the pain of installing a traditional hard-wired security system becomes a thing of the past and you can now have a sophisticated self-monitored solution without needing to worry about any messy cabling or ongoing subscription fees. The entire system is designed to be installed yourself and because it's wireless, you can even take it with you, should you ever decide to relocate, protecting your investment for years to come.
Smoke and carbon monoxide sensors form an important part of any home safety system but when connected to a smart home, they can deliver several important benefits. For example, if you have elderly relatives you worry about living alone, they can simultaneously trigger other Z-Wave devices in an emergency and flash room lights, unlock doors or send an alert to family and friends.
Automated lighting offers many benefits in and around the home but perhaps one not so obvious use case is that it allows its occupants to be guided safely between rooms at night without ever needing to fumble for a light switch. This can reduce the risk of falls and other injuries caused by poor lighting conditions.
With a Z-Wave key-less door lock, you can centrally manage unique access codes for every member of the household and trigger an event whenever someone gains entry to your home. You can also remotely lock and unlock your doors from anywhere in world and provide temporary access for house guests or tradesmen.
These are just a few of the many security and safety features of a Z-Wave smart home system and if you have any questions about how to best make use of this exciting technology, feel free to contact us anytime.
