Automate Your Business? Why Not Automate Your Home?

Okay, I know… we’ve covered home automation before on our sister site, Happy Human Pacifier.  But the contributed post below deals with an entirely different angle: Home Automation to save you time and improve your productivity and efficiency. 

Because Mom Entrepreneurs are BUSY ladies.  And can’t be bothered with trivial matters that whittle away precious time.

Read on to find out what I see as the Best Home Automation System ever invented…

Automate Your Business? Why Not Automate Your Home?

When you’re a working mom, you need to try to have the easiest possible life.

You need to know that when you’re pouring all your hours of time into your kids and your career, that you can still find the time to look after the house that you’ve worked hard for.

It’s not always easy to do this, and you can find yourself on a constant catch up between the laundry and getting the vacuuming done.

When you are at work, you’re all about efficiency. You automate your emails and you outsource certain tasks to make life easier and make the business run smoothly.

There is no rule in the world that tells you that you can’t do this for your house. If being an efficient career woman is going to bleed into your home life, it’s got to be positive, right?

So, if you want your home to be run as efficiently as you run your business, you could think about making your home smart. You can make it as complex or as simple as you’d like, and you can really target the things that matter most to you.

It’s all going to depend on your time and budget.

Below, you’ll find a list of all the ways that you can make your house run far more efficiently than ever before.

Lights.

Home security is a big deal, especially if you’re working long hours from the home office.

You could consider automating your home lighting – including outdoor lights – to switch on at an optimal hour in the day to ensure that things are secure.

You can even time your lights for the morning so that they’re coming on as you’re waking up for the day.

Pets.

Any pets in the home are going to need feeding on a regular basis.

Automated Feeders can time when pets are fed, meaning that you won’t have to give a second thought until you have to fill the containers that release the food.

It gives you one less job to do before work and frees your time to spend with the kids instead.

Cleaning.

We all love the idea of robots to clean the house, and some genius out there has made it a reality.

You can check out the Which Roomba is the Best for You? Full Comparison of the Top Models in 2018 guide to figure out which automatic Roomba is best for your home. It’s just an example; there’s no actual cleaning robot that’ll dust the surfaces, so you may as well make good where you can!

Editors Note: Ooh… An Automatic Roomba has got to be the best home automation system I’ve ever heard of (mostly because housework seems like the biggest time waster EVER).   

Coffee.

You’re a busy woman, you need your morning hit of caffeine to make it through the day. you can automate this and make it so that your favourite cup of coffee is waiting for you just after you finish your morning shower.

Businesses are automated all the time and it’s making companies work better, faster and earn more. There’s no reason you can’t jump on the bandwagon and automate your home, too.

How automated is your home?  Or are you doing EVERYTHING yourself – running home, business, kids, hubby… the whole shebang?
