Smarter Wake Ups
It does not really matter what time you have to get up, you probably wish you could spend just a little more time in bed. In fact, you might have bought an automatic coffeemaker with a built-in timer so that you can stay in bed just a few minutes longer (and the coffee still gets made).
Well, with Smart home outlets at Primecables.com you can literally program your entire home to operate in this fashion. Set the toaster and then program it for 5 am operation; have the morning news turn on as you get out of the shower, etc.
You know that you have to preheat the oven when you want to make cookies or a pizza. You also know that you sometimes need to warm up the car in the morning if it snowed. Well, with a smart outlet, you can “pre-heat” anything you want. Similarly to setting your coffeemaker in the morning, you could plug in a hair curler or flat iron and use a smart outlet to turn them on early in the morning so they are ready for you when you need them. Similarly, if you have a portable heater or fan you could program a smart outlet to help you heat or cool a room before you get home.
Smarter Home Security
Most burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Car prowlers, for example, are far more likely to break into a car if they feel they can make a quick grab of valuables left out in the open. Similarly, home burglaries can be opportunistic, as criminals anticipate you may not be home, and if they can find an easy way in, they will steal something.
Use smart outlets, then, turn lights on and off to make it look like you are home. You could also have smart outlets turn on the tv or radio, etc, to give the illusion that someone is home.
Smarter Home Cooking
Slow cooker (crock pot) cooking is very easy, except for the fact that it takes a long time to use them. Nobody has that kind of time: to start the slow cooker after they get home from work. Instead, you could load up the pot before you leave and turn on the smart outlet to start cooking a few hours later so the food is ready when you get home!
