That sounded like a great idea to me.
My house has the worst grass on the whole block and I am jealous of everyone’s green grass. I called a loan company to see if they could help me out and they suggested using a home automation program for the sprinklers. A home automation program sounded like a pretty good idea. I already had a smart thermostat in my home. Why not add a smart home device as well. The more I spoke to the irrigation company expert, the more I realized that I needed someone that would be able to install the system as well. What I really needed was an electrical contractor. I contacted several different electrical contractors in the area that handle this type of home automation system. I meant with the contractors and they had a lot of great ideas. One of the contractors suggested that we put the alarms, lights, and the sprinklers and irrigation all on an automation program. He said he could install one panel in the house that would control all of these items as well as our heating and AC system. That sounded like a great idea to me. It also sounded like a great way for all of these machines to be controlled by one machine. I wouldn’t have to learn a whole bunch of machines and control systems. The installation of the home automation program took nearly 3 days. There was a team of electrical contractors on the property that whole weekend and everything was completed by Sunday evening just like the contractor promised in our estimate and contract.
