It seems like a long time ago that kids used to get up from their sofas to change the cartoon on the TV, and you had to physically get up to open and close the room doors. Our ceiling fans and washing machines can’t speak, and replacing the ice cube trays was often “forgotten”. Isn’t it difficult to imagine that time? Nowadays, we enter a room and speak our wishes into the air, and all our work gets done in a jiffy without any effort.
“Alexa, turn on The Rolling Stones. In the hallway, turn on the light. Turn up the heat. Shut the garage door.”
When it comes to modern home technology, some homeowners are concerned about privacy. More and more Stedman Street Lowell families are joining the Internet of Things (IoT) bandwagon as they strive to automate their lives, but at some point, we will need an expert to deploy and remedy if anything goes wrong.
Why Should You Hire an Electrician to Install Smart Home Devices?
While specific gadgets, such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa, are simple to set up and use, going all-in on revolutionary home technology isn’t a do-it-yourself project.
Even if you’re an early adopter, smart homes are more than simply technology. To be clear, the installation is achievable if all you want is a wifi-enabled smart speaker. True home automation requires a network of connected devices and a hub or control system to guarantee that they all operate together without the need to download and use multiple apps.
- Imagine giving a simple spoken order to automate, such as getting the lights ready for bed.
- Setting the morning timer on your coffee machine.
- Dimming the lights in the living area.
- Playing soft music.
- Setting your alarm clock.
- Double-checking the locks on the front door and the garage door
Even though this is technically possible, you should be aware that attempting to build your home automation system will introduce you to a slew of unfamiliar terms and practices, including neutral wires, in-wall transmitters, deep junction boxes, whole-house surge protection, and loads that aren’t automatable.
Many tech-enabled comforts are self-contained and do not need help. Yet, if you intend on fiddling with real wires, you should seek the advice of a specialist. This includes the following:
- Switches for lights
- Outlets on the wall
- Controllers for sprinklers
- Smoke detectors
