Hoover Provides Home Automation Installation and Maintenance Services

Home automation was once popular in science fiction and anticipated as a futuristic convenience. Today, it is a reality. Numerous products allow you to integrate smart home systems to improve your comfort. Some can even improve energy efficiency and home security. Home automation control has numerous advantages nearly anyone can enjoy.

At Hoover Electric, Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we specialize in modernizing homes throughout Southeast Michigan. Our technicians are trained in the latest technologies, networking protocols, and products. Home automation installation must be done correctly for smart home devices to communicate with one another and work properly. Our team can quickly get a system up and running so you can start benefiting from it right away.

Understanding Home Automation

Home automation encompasses various technologies. Electronic devices can be connected to the internet, so you can control them via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other connections. Wireless home automation allows you to control connected devices remotely so, for example, you can turn up the AC before you get home from work. Or, devices can trigger one another so lights can turn on and off when you enter or leave a room.

These days, nearly anything electronic can be automated, including:

  • HVAC Equipment
  • Thermostats
  • Indoor/Outdoor Lighting
  • Window Blinds
  • Door Locks
  • Security Cameras
  • Alarm Systems
  • Video Doorbells

Why Hire a Professional Installer

Home automation installation is more complex than people realize. It requires working with wiring, which is dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Our technicians comply with the latest standards and ensure all devices are correctly wired so you can safely use all their features. Device setup can be challenging, depending on various factors in your home, and not all automation brands are compatible. Our team helps select and install gadgets to ensure they work together and are properly integrated, maximizing convenience.

At Hoover, we can also address challenges with network connectivity. If a network is of inferior quality, the entire system may not be effective. This can create security vulnerabilities or privacy concerns. We take every step to avoid these and ensure your home automation system is easy to use.

Our Home Automation Services

Hoover’s electricians have extensive training in the latest home automation systems. They use cutting-edge technology, including the latest Internet of Things (IoT) protocols like Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and Bluetooth. Whether you prefer to control devices with voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant or access and manage them using a mobile app, we can provide a customized system for you.

When providing home automation installation, we can integrate:

Smart Lighting

If you forget to turn off a light, a sensor or timer can do it for you. You can also schedule lights to turn off when you go to sleep or based on the time of day. Landscape lighting, which can set the mood, increase security, and highlight a facade or trees, can be connected to timers, motion sensors, and other systems. Smart lights can be activated when someone approaches your home or there’s a potential intruder.

Thermostats

Setting a thermostat on a schedule or integrating it with a home automation system can save energy. That’s because your AC or heater won’t run at full blast when you’re not home. Even if it’s been off all day, adjusting it through an app ensures your home is at a comfortable temperature when you return from work.

Security Systems

We all forget to lock the front door at one time or another. But whether you’re down the block or are already arriving at work, you can lock it remotely. The same goes for your garage door. An automation system can close it for you, and you can even view the garage door opener’s status on your phone. Security cameras and video doorbells can also be remotely monitored and controlled. You can view a camera feed, greet a visitor at the front door, or trigger an alarm.

Our Installation Process

At Hoover, our electricians follow a highly effective process to install the home automation system you need. It entails:

  • An In-Home Consultation: We explore the types of smart home systems and equipment that could benefit you the most and provide an estimate on the cost of installation.
  • Planning: Planning a home automation installation avoids making mistakes such as poor wiring, mismatched equipment, limited access points, and a lack of security.
  • Testing: We’ll test your smart home automation equipment to ensure it works and is compliant with all applicable electrical and building codes.
  • Customer Training: The installer will show you how to operate automation devices via an app, digital screen, or voice control and explain any other important aspects.
