Understanding the Smart Home
Where does someone even get started in making their home a smart home? The term “smart home” refers to any suite of options designed to make home management easier and more cost effective. Today’s smart home options include:
- Security - Smart home security gives you the ability to lock a door remotely, see who is in your home, as well as all of the traditional services you’d expect from a security system. Such as notifying authorities, checking for smoke or gas leaks, and keeping a video record of potential issues.
- Monitoring - Home monitoring is related to home security, but includes much more, Including room to room monitoring, a video doorbell, and remotely accessing video from anywhere. Whether you want to be sure your kids are home from school, the dog is behaving, or that the person at your door is who you are expecting, smart home monitoring is the key.
- Energy Conservation - Energy management is only a few taps away, or can be setup to run automatically. You can choose the lighting to be dim, based on the time of day or activity in the room, and window blinds and thermostats are able to automatically, or remotely adjust, in order to provide the best use of electricity and sunlight.
- Task Automation - With the right easy-to-use App, you can manage everything from lighting, to your TV and sound system, and even your water heater. At the touch of a single button, you can tell your entire home that you are saying good-bye, which arms your security system, turns off your lights, and adjusts your home temperature.
