A Parent’s Guide To Home Automation

The release date:2021/1/20 0:00:00



Parenting can be one of the most rewarding jobs you can ever have, but it is also one of the most hectic with all the cleaning, cooking, nursing babies, and entertaining toddler that you get to do.

 

In an ever-growing economy where parents have to work full-time jobs to make ends meet, doing this can be stressful and overwhelming!

 

Thankfully, smart home automation technologies are making it easier for parents to live less busy lives by automating schedules and home devices, so they don’t have to be stressed running the home and are able to spend more time with the little ones.

 

Home automation offers a wealth of parental help that would leave you wondering how you’ve never done it all this time.

 

 

Start With Hands-Free Smart Assistants

Your kids are always going to be a handful, no matter what stage they are in. There are endless tasks, from cooking to feeding, laundry, and more to do.

 

You just keep going on and on, only getting the occasional breaks when they are tucked in bed at night.

However, with smart voice assistants like Google and Amazon Alexa, busy parents can ensure the home continues running well without having to pause anything.

 

With a smart speaker, for example, you can give commands wherever they are placed in the house before you forget. With the information they provide, you and your family can keep to schedule and never miss anything or having to rush to the door.

 

Your smart assistant can even be automated to provide reminders, so you keep in mind planned tasks and activities.

 

Automate Indoor Temperature

As a busy parent, you won’t get the time to keep fiddling with the thermostat, and this can be frustrating as you can make everyone feel comfortable.

 

However, there are now smart thermostats that allow you to automate the indoor temperature of your home, ensuring you don’t have to fiddle with any buttons on the thermostat to get a home that is comfortable.

 

With multi-zone thermostats, parents get to heat or cool rooms as a whole or separate section of the house. Newborn babies often require a warmer temperature, while you can keep your living room comfortable.

 

This ability to regulate temperature for different zones in the house is great, especially if you have children who have sensitive skin, have allergies, or are asthmatic.

 

Using a smart thermostat to automate your comfort makes it possible to set your children’s rooms to a good temperature that makes it easier for them to fall asleep quicker and remain sleeping. Voice commands to your smart assistant can help to regulate temperature if they feel uncomfortable.

 

Keep Your Family Secure With Automated Locks and Lighting

One of the most important aspects of parenting is the safety and security of the family. It can be stressful to crawl into bed only to begin to wonder if the doors are locked.

 

With smart locks in your home, you can lock all your outside doors automatically from one central location. So when next you lie in bed to get a snug rest and wonder if your doors are locked or not, you can ask your smart assistant to confirm you are locked down for the night.

 

There are also keyless smart locks that ensure you can enter your house with your security code if you don’t have the keys on you.

 

Another form of smart home security for parents is home cameras that provide home video surveillance of your porch directly accessible on your smartphone or video smart speaker.

 

You can even communicate with visitors through these smart devices so you can give them a heads up that you are on the way without getting up and not to wake the baby.

 

Some even allow you to access the video feed when you are out of the home so you can track a package delivery or be sure your older children have returned from school.

 

Smart Lighting

Investing in smart lighting makes it easy for you and your children to move around the house easily without having to turn on switches at every turn.

 

Smart lights can be automated to turn on or off, or dim, depending on the preset schedule you have set.

 

They provide additional security for times when you aren’t home and helping to lower children’s bedroom light to get to bed, and those that come with motion sensors can turn brighter when they detect your child walking the corridor to use the bathroom at night.

 

Most smart light bulbs are LEDs, which are not as hot to touch as regular bulbs, so it wouldn’t hurt your little one if they get bedside the lamp. LEDs also consume less electricity and last much onger than traditional light bulbs, which enables you to reserve more energy and save some funds towards fun family outings.

 

When smart lighting is paired with a smart thermostat and a smart assistant, you can easily automate the room temperature to increase by some degrees when the light turns off or cools the room down when hot kitchen lights turn on.

 

 

Smart Assistants Can Be Excellent Nannies

Kids love attention, and somehow, they seem to crave it most when you are busy doing the laundry or cooking in the kitchen.

 

A smart assistant in the room can keep children entertained and let you keep an eye on them while you get your chores done.

 

Alexa or Google Home assistant offers dance games to get them jumping through different songs. Your voice assistant can be commanded to play videos or turn on your children’s favorite movie and play on a loop until you are ready for them again.

 

Conclusion

Whether you have a kid or it’s a full house, parenting is not always easy, but you can make it smooth by incorporating smart home technology to keep things in control.

 

Routine activities in your endless list of to-dos can be chalked off with smart devices that can help to keep the home climate controlled, ensure the security of your home, keep children busy, and regulates lighting so you can enjoy that snuggle with your little one on the couch.

 

Parents want to be able to give their children the best life while not burdened by the stress of the job. Automation tools have proven to be very helpful in making this happen.
