What is Home Automation?

The term Home Automation covers many different types of programs, devices, and apps. Automation involves the programming of a computer or group of computers to control the operations of a variety of different systems, devices, and appliances. An automated home is also sometimes referred to as a smart home.

Nipper Electric routinely installs automation and smart programs for businesses and homes throughout our Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach area. Including the three basic types of home automation:

  • Remote Controlled Programming– This is where devices, appliances, and systems can be controlled remotely, often on your phone or iPad.
  • Smart Automation– Devices, appliances, and systems can learn your preferences and adapt to meet your needs better.
  • Programmable Automation– In this instance, you can manually program devices, appliances, and systems to work at any time during the day. These programmable systems can hold several different programs and times, unlike programmable devices of the past.

Many times, a smart home has a combination of these three types of automation, working together to make your life simpler.

How Does Home Automation Work?

smartphone-in-mens-handHomes can be automated through different options for smart programming. In some instances, connections to the homes wireless connection and the electrical grid. These programs require professional installation and come with a variety of advantages, including the ability to access your home from phones, tablets, and computers anywhere.

Whole house automation is an option that is wired into the home electrical system. While this system is the most intricate, it also brings in the biggest benefits for energy efficiency, financial savings, and, of course, convenience. You will need the help of an experienced electrical contractor or electrician to successfully install this program.

Simpler automation options are control hubs that are simply plugged into a wall socket and used to communicate with different appliances and devices in the home. You could control any room of the house with a remote control that is paired with this device or sometimes even with your own phone.

What Can Be Automated in My Home?

The possibilities are virtually endless with a smart-home. Here are just a few of the devices you can automate in your home:

  • Thermostats
  • Ovens
  • Lighting
  • Security Systems
  • TVs
  • Security Systems
  • Cars
  • Locks
  • Blinds
  • Sprinklers

Home automation can simplify your life, save you money, and protect your home.

Why Use Home Automation? 

Home automation can:

  • Simplify Your Life– If you’re juggling a million different demands every day, home automation can save you some time. You can have your trusted electrician in Virginia Beach help you program different systems, then go about your day.
  • Control & Monitor Your Home Remotely– If you travel a lot, home automation programs can help you keep your home running efficiently and safely while you are gone. You can even check up on your home from anywhere around the world with a simple touch of your phone or tablet.
  • Secure Your Home– From your phone, you can monitor your home’s locks, windows, and every entrance to your home. Security lighting can be adjusted when you travel. Afraid you forgot to lock the front door? Simply check on your phone. Your home will never be safer.

Trey Nipper and his team were a pleasure to work with. We did a whole house renovation and Nipper Electric rewired the whole house, installed about 100 LED can lights, kitchen and bath lighting, outdoor house lights, reworked our electric panel, and several other parts of the job. Trey was always available and he was helpful in the placement of all of our lights. They were reasonably priced and were easy to work with. We highly recommend Nipper Electric.read more

I come from a perspective of "things happen." And unfortunately something did. When I called Nipper, a he-said, she-said situation arose with my tenant that could have turned ugly. Nipper didn't go there. I was very pleased with the way they responded to my call. Now I could see how they handled an adverse situation. And I get be them very High marks! I have several rentals; and I will definitely used them again. Their pricing is very fair.read more

Reasonable price, quality work and exceptional customer service/relations! My wife and I were expecting a baby any day when we encountered an electrical issue in the nursery that we needed fixed as soon as possible. I called Nipper Electric and Trey Nipper called me back 10 minutes later. They were able to send out a technician who found and fixed the issue the same day. Given our busy schedule with baby planning, it was a relief to work with a company like Nipper who took care of our issue quickly. We will definitely be using Nipper Electric in the future. If you are in the search for an electrician, your search is over... just give Nipper Electric a call.read more

Nipper Electric is by far the best electrician company I have ever hired. Trey and his guys ROCK! They do such exemplary work every time. Last fall, they rewired practically our entire home and modernized our system in the walls, meters, lighting, ceiling fans, outlets, under-counter lighting. You name it; they do it. Such a class act and so professional, GRADE "A" WORK. I can't say enough about this organization and their crew. From start to finish, they dealt with all the inspections, went above and beyond the norm. We just had Nipper Electric back at our home yesterday with outside lighting, more indoor work, and, once again, their work is exceptional. My Mom hired them to rework her under-counter lighting that was put in by another "not-up-to-par" electrician less than a year ago. She was so unhappy with her only 9-month old under-counter lighting that she decided to hire Nipper Electric because of the great work they did for my brother and me. And she is so happy with her new under-counter lighting replacement by Nipper Electric. She only wishes my brother and I had found them before she had her kitchen lighting installed. She's so happy now! And my brother and I are again giving rave reviews to Nipper Electric. Thank you Trey, Zach and Jessie. We feel like you guys are friends now! Thanks, Nancy Y. Smithread more

I was extremely impressed with this company, beginning with the VP, Trey, who came to my home to assess my particular situation, which was to convert a Fiberstars fiberoptic pool light to an LED light. Trey is highly intelligent and willing to take the time to research the situation at hand and study the data I had managed to collect for this undertaking. The electricians, Zack and Jessie, who came to do the work were also highy professional, congenial, hard-working, and knowledgeable and completed the task iwith exceptional efficiency in spite of the fact that they had never done such a conversion before. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Nipper Electric for any of your electrical needs.read more

Trey and Zack installed a variety of lights all over our home. The installation included wall sconces, recessed ceiling lights, combo bathroom exhaust/light fans, and under counter kitchen led lights. Their work was very professionally done, without any setbacks. They cleaned up after the job was finished and left our house spotless. You can't go wrong with this company.read more
