Discover five ways to make your life easier through new home automation technology.

Arising trend in the home industry is the utilization of automation technology. For those who are unfamiliar with this concept, home automation allows you to control basic functions of the home such as lighting, AC and heating, locks, window blinds etc. from the convenience of your phone. 

As homeowners are gravitating toward incorporating automation into their homes, here are five ways that home automation makes your life easier. 


While this reason may seem obvious, home automation allows homeowners to control basic home functions remotely. There are also programming options that allow your appliances to develop a schedule. 

“We believe that nobody really wants to walk in and operate their home,” Melissa Mitchell, marketing manager at Wipliance says. “ You want to walk in and have a cup of coffee or a movie night with your family, so if we can unify all of the tedious tasks with the touch of a button or a voice command, there is some magic that happens there.”

Home automation gives people the ability to adjust lighting, temperature, security systems, and even appliances from their smartphones or tablets, saving time and effort.


Energy Efficiency: 

Not only does home automation make the lives easier for homeowners, it can also save them money. Smart thermostats, lighting systems, and appliances can be programmed to operate more efficiently, reducing energy waste and lowering utility bills.

With smart devices, they can learn your patterns and habits and adjust their functions to what suits your lifestyle. Automated lighting can turn on and off depending on your schedule and patterns, ultimately saving you money on the electricity bill. 

“Energy management is a big part of what we do from a lighting control standpoint,” Mitchell explains. “ When you have lights that are turning on and off based off a schedule that saves a lot in terms of money and energy usage.” 

Automated window shades also help to contribute to the sustainability of a home’s longevity.

“Motorized window treatments protect your home from ultraviolet damage,” Mitchell says. “There are fabrics that have reflective properties which push the harsh rays of the sun away giving the home a 10-15 degree temperature difference, it’s amazing.”

Improved Security

Along with saving money, home automation helps with a peace of mind. systems often include security features such as smart locks, motion sensors, and surveillance cameras helping you feel secure and in-the-know of happenings when you are not home. 

Homeowners can monitor their property in real-time, receive alerts about suspicious activities and remotely control the access to their homes, enhancing overall safety.

Enhanced Entertainment

For all those entertainers out there, having the right ambiance can directly affect the mood of the party. With home automation, entertainment has never been easier. With centralized control, homeowners can easily manage their entertainment devices, create custom media playlists, and even automate movie nights with preset lighting and audio settings.

Audio and video is the foundation of Wipliance, so customization within those spaces has never been easier. 

“The understatement of these features has been a big trend recently, for example having hidden speakers in homes or small ambient lighting,” Mitchell says.

This trend is rising for entertainers to have a well equipped space without the wires and bulky features showing, maintaining a sleek and clean design.

With home automation, it goes a step further, you are able to monitor the state of individual appliances so you can catch problems early, schedule maintenance appointments more efficiently. This prolongs the equipment and saves headaches for homeowners. 

Home automation is an investment, but a smart one. In the long run, home automation saves time, money and stress. For more information about home automation services, please visit Wipliance’s website.
