Frequently asked home automation questions

What are the different types of home automation systems?

Generally speaking, home automation systems are either wired or wireless. Here’s a quick look at each of these options.

  • Wired: A wired home automation system means devices such as cameras and sensors are connected directly to and through your home’s electrical wiring. While wired systems are hard to hack, they are also very hard to install and can’t be controlled remotely.
  • Wireless: A wireless home automation system uses Wi-Fi to connect the components of the system. A wireless system can be accessed and controlled remotely and is simpler to install and rearrange.

Vivint takes the guesswork out of home automation by offering customizable home automation packages and professional installation to ensure your home automation products are installed correctly and work seamlessly together.

What smart home devices can be automated?

For example, smart door locks, smart thermostats, and smart lighting are all examples of smart home devices that can be automated. Imagine not only being able to control these devices from your phone but also being able to automate them. Lights that turn off automatically when you head to work, doors that lock when the garage door closes, or temperature that adjust perfectly when you’re headed home from work. And that’s just the beginning. Read here for a deeper dive into smart home devices that can be automated.
