Trusted Alarm recently discovered a shifting trend in the purchasing of home security systems. Homeowners and business owners alike are choosing to use security companies as primary suppliers of home and office automation systems. Rather than trying to set up complicated non user-friendly systems, homeowners and business owners are opting to turn towards larger companies such as Protect America, Vivint, ADT, and Frontpoint to streamline the process of automation.

Home automation allows homeowners to remotely control their home from a variety of devices. Imagine during a commute to work that it is remembered someone forgot to lock the front door, turn off the lights, close the garage, or turn off the air conditioning. With select security companies the ability exists to monitor and control multiple functions from the convenience of a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Homeowners have the ability to lock or close doors, adjust the thermostat, turn on or off lights, or view live camera feeds.

As the prices of homes rise each year, homeowners are increasing looking toward technology to help manage the costs associated with owning a home. Home automation has proven its value when it comes to saving money. The average cost for decent home automation is $40 a month. Some security companies offer lower prices, and security companies are constantly running promotions to generate new customers. The average home automation user saves a little under $50 monthly.

Saving money is not the main reason that homeowners are turning to home automation. Homeowners are flocking to home automation for peace of mind. Homeowners can completely control their homes with just a few touches of a screen from any part of the world. The decrease in stress allows people to become more productive, enjoy their lives, and focus on what is important. Converting regular homes into a smart home is as easy as calling one of Trusted Alarm’s user rated security companies.
