So we have just now started getting ready to move in to the new place. It is a really nice place and we are thinking that we should probably get ADT to be safe. Of course we know that you have to pay for the service if you are going to be able to get any use from having the home security system. Of course they have all sorts of different types of gadgets that you can get. The question is how much value you get from various features and what is going to be cost effective. I was looking at the various things you can do if you choose to do it. It is pretty amazing what you could do if you really had the motivation and of course the resources as well. It is not necessarily true that all of the stuff you could do would make sense in a practical way. It is easy to start buying a lot of toys and not really figure out how to get the best use of it all of course.
The thing that seems to make the most sense is using home automation to make your house run more efficiently. For example you are going to come and go all of the time. When you are at work you do not need to have the heat perfectly adjusted. It does not matter if the house is a little too warm or a little too cold when no one is there. If everyone is laying in bed then most of the house is not going to be in use. So the same general principle applies. You would want the room which you were to be nice and cozy, but the rest of the house would be less important to you when you are in bed.
