This presentation is a “Go and Show” PowerPoint. Advanced technology over the years has not only shaped the way we communicate, but also how we protect our homes. Technology allows us to link different devices and connect beyond just computers and smartphones. Nowadays, it is pretty common for people to also connect many of their home elements like garage doors, doorbells, door locks, speakers, lights, clocks, and other electronic devices for optimal security. Keeping an eye on your home away from home has never been easier!
Home automation involves your devices communicating with each other to send you information and follow your commands. It is convenient to use once you get everything set up properly because you can control the different elements in your home with it! Saving electricity and having improved security are just two of many perks of home automation. In this guide, we will go over the different ways automation & smart home technology can provide home security.
