Smart homes are becoming increasingly popular. Today’s homeowners aren’t just connecting their security systems and doorbells to their handheld devices, they’re also connecting their stereo systems, thermostats, and even their refrigerators.
Regardless as to how tech savvy you are (or aren’t), there are numerous benefits associated with smart home automation. Below are just a few of the ways you can benefit.
It can help keep your home safe
Lots of busy professionals spend time away from home. Unfortunately, vacant homes are often targeted by criminals. When your home is connected you can use technology to turn lights on and off, you can get text notifications if your security system detects movement in or outside our home, and you can even use your handheld device to arm or disarm your security system.
If you’d like to take things one step further, our company can also help you choose smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. If your smart device detects that something is amiss, and it senses that your house or condo has potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide or smoke, you’ll be alerted post haste.
It can save you money
We all know someone who has left town for a few days (or weeks), only to return and find that their AC has been running at full blast the entire time they were away. It can be an expensive mistake to make.
However, when you opt for smart home optimization, you can check on (and control) your thermostat from anywhere you have a cell phone signal. Are you worried you may have forgotten to turn the AC down? You can check that on your phone and make adjustments if needed.
What’s more, if you’re returning from a long trip and you want to adjust your home’s temperature up (or down) in advance of your arrival, this is also something that you can handle on the fly.
Technology doesn’t have to be intimidating. When you work with our company we’ll be happy to meet with you to learn more about what your needs are. From there, we can help you develop a custom-installed system that can help make your life easier.
