Perhaps this benefit will not apply to everyone but for those who habitually worry about whether or not they have taken care of everything at home before leaving for the day a home automation system is a perfect investment. In short it offers peace of mind.
For those interested in design and its infinite possibilities have a look at these Canadian passports and their surprising security feature! Canada’s newest passport designs may look common at a first glance ( with the information and photo area along with the typical numbered pages) but if you place one under UV lighting everything changes. Security additions that are revealed by black light are common but this is something special and you have probably already understood why.
Instead of thinking that you are stuck with a dark closet consider adding a window or clerestory (top of the wall) windows that allow light in without losing valuable wall storage space. If your closet is on the interior of your home and doesn’t have an exterior wall look to a solar tube that bring light from your roof down into your closet. These are energy efficient because they don’t use electricity and they illuminate your closet with natural glowing light.
Mix and match color with dark finishes: Another option for achieving great lighting is to play off of adjacent colors to lighten up your dark colored interiors. Choose colors that have a bright nature and your interior space will feel playful and casual or choose lighter neutrals to make the space feel formal and sophisticated.
This quickly eases your mind so you can focus on your day’s work rather than who may or may not be entering your home. This is also a great benefit for you if you have to leave to work before your children leave for school. Often children run out the door to catch the bus and forgot to lock the door.
Simply put you are contributing to the economy when you purchase and utilize a home automation system. You ensure that you are only using the energy and resources that are necessary while you are home.
