Automating Your Home With Your iPad

Posted by ZUGU CASE on 16th Oct 2018

The future is here. And while we still have yet to develop the flying cars that the Jetsons promised us so long ago, we have made some seriously awesome advancements. One such breakthrough is of course the small, yet powerful, iPad. This versatile machine can practically do anything.

For example, Apple now has a HomeKit smart-home platform that allows you to control your smart home-system from your iPhone or iPad. This kit is compatible with a wide array of smart-home accessories, including locks, thermostats, cameras, and more, which means you can now control your home by barking out an order to Siri. Read on to learn about how you can take total control of your home, regardless of where you are, using your iPad.

Apple’s HomeKit

Perhaps one of the best things about buying an Apple HomeKit is that when you do, you are getting a product that has been tested and built by one of the most secure and functional makers around, Apple. Additionally, with this kit you don’t need to purchase or configure a central hub. All you need is your iPad or another iOS device.

Below are some of the capabilities of your Apple HomeKit:

Media Center

Using your iPad, you can command everything audio and video related with ease. With this inter-device communication, you can have the capability to turn your iPad into a universal remote, capable of controlling the tunes, TV, and much more.

Security

From doorbell cameras to full control of the locks in your house, a smart home can give you unrivaled control over the security of your home. Not only are smart locks regarded as more secure than regular locks, but they also give you the ability to double check whether or not you locked your door on your way out in the morning.

Temperature

Save energy by adjusting your thermostat based on the weather and whether you are home or away. Smart-home thermostats will even allow you to put sensors in different rooms and find an average temperature between these rooms, rather than simply adjusting the heat or air based on the temperature of the room in which the thermostat is.

This is in no way a comprehensive list. Your Apple HomeKit also has the capability of powering your lights, outlets, speakers, fans, switches, and much more. Learn more here.

Benefits of Home Automation

Automating your home isn’t just a way to add some luxury to your living and to be able to turn the lights off without having to stand up. There are many more benefits to automating your home. Below are some of these advantages:

  • Save Money — Part of what makes a smart home smart is its ability to be more cost-effective with utilities and energy usage. Whether you are scheduling your heating and cooling based on weather reports or simply turning off electronic devices when not in use, a home automation system has a number of cost benefits.
  • Enhance Safety — With a fully equipped home automation system, you will be able to monitor the security cameras at your home wherever you are — so long as you have internet connection. Additionally, you would also have the power to turn the lights on while on vacation to avoid the appearance of a vacant home.
  • Improve Convenience — Whether you want to schedule your coffee maker to start brewing at a specific time or open your garage door from your iPad, integrating a home automation system to your home can drastically improve the convenience of many daily tasks.
