Have you ever wished for a button to do all your home automation tasks at the same time? If you have the Scenes feature on your home security app, you do. In fact, Scenes gives you a total of four buttons: Home, Away, Sleep and Wake Up. Each of these buttons is programmed to automate those times of day when you need your system to do multiple things at once. Here’s what each one of them does.
The Wake Up Button
When you get out of bed, tap the Wake Up button to turn on some of your lights, warm up the house by a couple of degrees and disarm the alarm part of the system until everyone else has left for the day. Once you’re ready to leave yourself, use the Away button to set the alarm again.
The Away Button
As you leave for work, tap the Away button to tell your system to set your alarm again for the day. It will also lock your front door (if you have a smart lock), close your garage and adjust your thermostat. After that quick tap, you’re ready to leave with peace of mind while you go about your work.
The Home Button
When you return home in the evening, you want the house to be warm and welcoming. By tapping the Home button, you can tell your system to turn on the interior lights and unlock the front door. Now, entering the house after work is a comforting experience.
The Sleep Button
At bedtime, you’ll want to turn the lights off and lock the doors. That’s the job of your Sleep button. Of course, it also sets the alarm to make sure you sleep soundly without fear of intrusion. And because our systems are energy conscious, this button also turns down the thermostat for the night.
All four scenes are easy to customize and add to. You can add a porch light to your Home scene for a brighter welcome, or set your downstairs lights to turn off automatically when you tap the Sleep button. Need help with your Scenes feature, or looking for more information? Call Post Alarm Systems. We look forward to speaking with you.
