As everything in our daily lives becomes IP-based, home automation (or Smart Homes) continues to become more common. Superior Heating and Cooling has embraced the evolution of home automation systems by devoting resources to the creation of our very own St Louis home automation system installation team. If you are considering upgrading the technical capabilities and electronic functionality of your St Charles or St Louis area home, or have questions about how home automation can benefit you, call our home automation team at (314) 209-7500 or (636) 926-0000 today.
What is Home Automation?
Home automation is the centralized electronic control of features throughout your household appliances and utilities. Also known as domotics, most home automation runs through a central home automation controller. An example of a home automation controller would be the Ecobee thermostat's app for your smart thermostat which allows you to control home automation functionality both inside and outside of your home.
A St Louis & St Charles Smart Home Introduction
A Smart Home is often a term associated with a home that has installed home automation features such as lighting, heating, camera, and electrical devices which can be controlled by a smartphone or computer. Most of these devices are generally set up through WiFi home automation which allows electronics to communicate with one another wirelessly through a secured home network.
HVAC Automation Systems
As a premier HVAC Company in St Louis, Superior prides itself on providing professional insight to our customers on HVAC automation systems. Through hours and hours of advanced technical training, Superior Heating and Cooling is one of the only HVAC companies that are Nest Pro Thermostat Installers. HVAC automation systems, when set up by a professional, can learn your heating and cooling habits and automatically adjust your temperature settings based on your:
- Heating and cooling preferences
- Daily schedule
- Seasonal trends
Over time, HVAC automated systems can help save you money on your energy bills, while also providing your home with consistently comfortable temperature settings.
Home Automation Light Switch
Just like the heating and cooling features associated with HVAC automated systems, your home lighting is another feature that can be synced with a smart home using a home automation light switch. This feature can allow you to control the lighting in your home from separate rooms or even outside of your home.
Think you forgot to turn off a light before you left for work? No big deal. With a home automation light switch, you can log in to your home from a smartphone or computer and turn off the light in real-time.
Home Automation Security Systems
Many home security systems began transitioning to IP-based servers years ago, but it was not until recently that we began to see home automation security systems begin to sync with the functionality of other home automation features. With a home automation security system, you can unlock your front door from your cell phone. So if you need to let your dog sitter in your home in St Louis, but you are on the beach in Florida, you can simply log in to your account from your smartphone and unlock it.
Home automation security systems also allow you to watch your security cameras from your smartphone or computer. Indoor and outdoor cameras can be installed and monitored from any smart device. The cameras can send notifications when motion is sensed.
Superior is an Ecobee Thermostat Installer
As an Ecobee Thermostat Installer, Superior Heating and Cooling technicians have access to the highest grade of Ecobee products. The thermostat requires a professional installer to wire the high voltage cables specifically to spec. When you install an Ecobee with Superior Heating and Cooling, our Superior Comfort Specialists set up the thermostat specifically to the preferences of the homeowner.
We also take the time to train our customers on how to use the thermostat to its best capabilities. Our goal is to make our customers feel as comfortable as possible on how to use the Ecobee Thermostat by the time we leave the installation. If you are looking for a professional installation of an Ecobee thermostat, make sure to call Superior Heating and Cooling today to reserve your installation date. Our phone number is (314) 209-7500 or (636) 926-0000.
