Your home or office utilizes heaters, air conditioners, humidifies, fans, door position, windows, plumbing, and electrical systems to deliver a pleasant and livable environment. All of these systems can malfunction. When heaters malfunction the house can freeze and burst pipes, open windows can allow rain to soak your valuable carpets, open doors can invite burglary, and the list of side effect goes on and on. When equipment over-functions the heater or air conditioner stays on for hours while your electric bills skyrocket through the roof.
You have dozens of different options of how to monitor your home or office environment and in turn have the monitoring results sent to your PC or your mobile wireless device. The most basic home monitoring system is for temperature. These temperature monitoring devices can be wireless and simply located at strategic positions around the house. Next on the list you can add wireless door and window sensors and after that you can add water leak detection. You can have these monitoring results alert you if some threshold is reached… like the temperature dropping below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or you can track your monitoring results and use that data to refine your heating and cooling master plan. When you look at a graph of your environmental conditions you might be shocked about the waste of heating or cooling and in turn you can take steps to optimize the settings of your heaters and air conditioners.
Finally, you may remotely control your home or office appliances and after looking at the temperature of your house… tell your house to cool down… your coming home.
