Winter in Minnesota can be downright miserable. Shorter days, colder nights and substantial time spent indoors can leave you longing for sunny spring before the year is out—unless you have the technology to keep you comfortable, that is. At Bravas, we’re dedicated to bringing unmatched convenience, comfort, and entertainment to Twin Cities homeowners. And what better time to take advantage of home automation controls than winter, when you spend the most time indoors? Take a look at these must-have automation features that help make your winter more manageable.


Home Automation Keeps Your Home Comfortable

A smart home thermostat is a convenient solution for maintaining a comfortable interior temperature year-round. You can program the thermostat to turn on and off at specific times, or you operate the device with just a touch of your smartphone.


Many smart thermostats even sense when interior temperatures rise and fall and adjust accordingly to maintain constant indoor comfort. Smart thermostats are easily integrated into your home’s existing automation features, so you can control your lighting, heating, entertainment, and home security remotely or from one convenient, centralized location.


Keep the Lights On with Smart Lighting Controls

Days are shorter, nights are colder, and your home needs the security to match. With automated lighting controls, you can operate both your exterior and interior lights from anywhere you are. If you’re getting ready to head home from work, just tap your smartphone screen, and your lights will greet you as you roll in the driveway.


Or, if you’re more of a planner, you can program your smart lighting to turn on and off at specific times of the day. Many smart lighting controls even sense waning daylight and activate your lights as the sunsets. Motion sensor smart lightning also provides increased safety for your holiday guests by fully illuminating the pathways around your home.


Staying Indoors? Entertain Yourself With Whole Home AV

It’s no secret that we spend a ton of time indoors during the winter. If you have to be cooped up for months on end, why not entertain yourself while you wait for spring? Whole-home AV brings entertainment to your fingertips with a single touch of a screen or the utterance of a command.


When you change rooms, you can take your entertainment from TV to TV. Or, if you’re more of a party host, whole-home audio allows you to set the mood in any room of your choosing. With a centralized, wired control system, no matter where you move, your entertainment moves with you. If you’re more of a smartphone user, you can even program your entertainment to operate with just a touch of your phone screen.
