Besides ultimate convenience, another benefit of a home automation system lies in the ability to save energy. A favorite âGreenâ feature DSI Entertainment Systems regularly programs into their clientsâ homes is a âGoodnightâ button that shuts off all audio/video systems, sets back the thermostats to an energy-saving mode, shuts off all lights, and arms the security system. A âVacationâ setting can likewise put all of the homeâs thermostats in an idle state to further conserve energy, and even have the homeâs lighting control randomly cycle some of the interior lights to give any would-be intruders that the home is occupied.
