I remember when you had to do everything by hand at home. Lights were switched on manually, heating control were limited to `on´ or `off´ and my old mum even had an old fashioned mangle to dry the clothes.
The time I am talking about wasnt so long ago, and if it sounds like centuries have passed since then that is just due to the amazing speed of progress we have seen in the last few decades.
If you havent quite caught up with the latest home technology then maybe now is a good time to see why it has become so popular and what benefits it could give you.
Enjoy a More Comfortable Life
We all want to enjoy a relaxed life with plenty of leisure time and fun. One of the big positive effects of having a more automated house is that you get freed up from a lot of dull tasks and can do what you want to do more often. For example, as you sit on the commute home from work you can set your heating to the level you want, switch on the lights, make a cup of tea and generally get the house ready for your arrival, you could even turn the heating up on your bathroom mirror. This means that you can get straight down to whatever you want when you arrive.
Impress Your Visitors
Have you ever walked into a bathroom and the lights have come automatically? Maybe the bathroom mirror also had a built in television and a touch screen? You can change the weather outside by tweaking the settings on your double glazing. No? Well most of your guests wont ever have experienced such a thing either, and they will be stunned to see your appliances and gadgets. There comes a time with all new technology when it stops being seen as exclusive and starts to become something which just about everyone has. This time will almost certainly come around soon for home automation but at the moment you will be the proud owner of some technology which simply blows away people who have never seen it before.
Give Yourself a Treat
Isnt it great when we can treat ourselves to something really special without feeling guilty about it? Buying yourself a frothy cappuccino and a sticky cake after a hard day at work is brilliant but giving yourself a better home to live in is even more important. As I said at the start, I remember back in the days when life was a bit tougher for us and the thought of having a little extra help was impossible. Now it doesnt cost a fortune to make your home more automated and enjoy getting home to it every day after work. We dont always treat ourselves to as many great things as we should do, and this is one way of changing that situation.
