Still deciding what’s on your grown-up wish list this season? If you’re looking for the perfect purchase that is a little bit practical but also cool and fun, a few smart home elements might be just right for you. It may feel like you are treating yourself but you’ll also reap the benefits for years to come.
What Makes A House Smart?
Smart houses have home automation technology. These devices can be controlled from your internet-connected devices such as your phone or tablet and they have the ability to work together on a schedule. This allows you to have even more control of what goes on in your home from any place where you have internet access. Smart devices can include thermostats, locks, garage doors, light modules, video cameras, security alarm components, a variety of sensors, etc.
Why Are Smart Homes So Much Smarter?
Smart homes also allow you to maximize energy efficiency by “learning” your habits and giving you suggestions that can help you save on your bills. They also allow you to create triggered actions. For example, a system can easily be programmed so that when you lock your front door, your security system arms, your garage door closes and selected lights turn on. This makes your life more convenient by taking steps out of your everyday routine. It also helps give you peace of mind because you don’t have to worry about whether or not your home has been properly secured before you left. In case you needed one more reason, smart technology may have the potential to increase the value of your home if you should choose to move.
How Do I Get Started?
You can schedule a meeting with one of our representatives or discuss options over the phone. We have several packages that include home automation. You can see a breakdown of our packages here, but remember they can all be personalized to fit your specific needs. Don’t forget, you can always start small with a device or two and add on over time until you have the smart home of your dreams. Looks like your holiday wish list is ready to go!
