5 Benefits of Home Automation

Have you realized the benefits of automation for your home? I’m not talking about a setup like Tony Stark (Iron Man). Although it’s super cool, a built-in artificial intelligence acting as your do-it-all butler is probably not possible just yet.

Unlike Iron Man’s equipment, the home automation technology that we offer at Westcoast AV Gallery is made for you. It’s easy to use and offers a lot of benefits.

When most people think about home automation, the conversation seems to revolve around simple environmental controls like lighting, heating and air conditioning. Although these areas are very helpful, they only scratch the surface of what is possible.

1. Save Energy, Save Money.

Obviously right? Having programmed settings for things like lighting and your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) will save you money. But why stop there? Your appliances, the security system, entertainment systems throughout the home; all of these things can be automated to save on your energy consumption.

2. Peace of Mind.

Have you ever left your home and wondered if you locked all the doors? What about when you’re away and someone needs access to your home? With home automation, you won’t have these concerns. Instead, you’ll have peace of mind that comes from the security and control found in your home automation system.

Ensure that doors and windows are secure through a confirmation on your mobile device. View your security system and grant temporary access from an app on your phone. These are all options that are available to you when you choose home automation.

3. Seamless Design & Flexibility

Say goodbye to tangled cords, numerous wall switches and a remote for every device. When you automate your home, the technology that you add makes life simpler, not more complicated.

4. Personalize your space.

Picture this. It’s late evening. You’ve finished dinner and have the remainder of the night to yourself. The plan is to relax on the couch with a good book. What if everything could be setup for you with the touch of a button? The correct amount of light, an adequate temperature, some relaxing music, a hot drink brewing; all of these things could be triggered with one touch of your home automation system.

5. The WOW Factor.

“You control all of those systems from your phone? That’s pretty cool.” Why yes, yes it is.

If you’re a fan of technology, you know the feeling you get when you experience it in a new way. Walking into your house and having several systems change at the touch of button is cool. Being away from your home yet knowing what’s going on and being in control – well that’s cool too.

Our products from Crestron or RTI will add a wow factor to your home. Easily impress friends and colleagues or simply sit back and enjoy the fact that you truly are the master of your domain.


Home Automation is definitely an investment. In our opinion, it’s one that not only pays you back financially, but also brings other benefits along with it.
