Ever thought of how comfortable and convenient it could be if you could control numerous activities on your devices with just a click of a button, or with a simple swipe? Whether while at the office, on holiday, or on the go? Think about the video games you play, the music you listen to, your PC, MAC and any other technological gadgets you make use of. What about that mobile device you can’t possibly live without? Just about anything technology related that you can imagine is the outcome of a complex chain, linking one process to the next. There’s a whole world of mechanisms at play running in the background of your devices. These actions can be complex and aren’t so transparent, meaning that there is only so much control you can have over your devices. This is where automating your device comes in handy!
So what is Automation?
Device automation is the combination of preset hardware and software related tasks that allow devices, such as PCs and smartphones, to logically function without the need for users to be present where the action is taking place. This is very Ellpful, considering the hectic and fast-paced life you most probably lead, as not only does automation help speed up processes but makes operating your devices, a smoother and less complicated activity.
Automation is basically the application of setting a particular action as an automated response to a specific trigger. A typical standard example would be the notification we all get whenever our laptop’s battery level is very low. You don’t need to stay monitoring the battery levels all the time, the system takes care of it and will simply notify you when your attention is really required. As a result, this minimizes the need for users to go into all the nitty gritty of constantly maintaining their system. The beauty of automation is the fact that everything has already been organized in the background so you can complete tasks with ease and peace of mind. This is why automation is so amazingly convenient. It’s better, faster, and requires minimal to no effort from the user.
What can Automation really do for you?
It puts you in the driver’s seat
One of the main benefits of an automated system is that it provides you with more control over your devices, allowing for a better device experience. Everything is within your grasp, granting you the possibility to customize as you go along. It allows you to set your personal preferences and personalize notifications around your specific needs.
Automation increases productivity as you don’t have to stay wasting time constantly checking and updating your devices, as the automated system does all the hard work for you. This means more time to focus on the task at hand, fewer worries and less stress.
Less room for human error
Having an automated system means there is less chance for human error, which results in better quality of output and deliverability. In today’s fast paced world it’s almost impossible to keep a close eye on all your devices, and you will surely miss out on certain updates that need to take place, or activities that need your attention. An automated system will help you keep track of everything, giving you that reassurance that everything is being taken care of.
Having the power to automate means that there is no ‘middle man’ standing in the way of you getting things done the way you want them to. A personalized automated system gives you options, unlike the default ‘one size fits all’ programmed systems which don’t give you the flexibility you need to customize around your preferences. Notifications also add to the transparency element, giving you insight and keeping you up to date with your devices.
Over the years, there has been a great deal of work put into improving the control and flexibility users can have over their devices. Even more recently, Ellp, a software startup based in Malta (Europe), has made huge accomplishments in the automation sphere, taking it to a whole new level.
