What is a Smart Home? (And Why You Want One)
At some point, you have probably heard the phrase “smart home”—or at the very least, you’re hearing it now. Like something out of The Jetsons or Back to the Future: Part II, smart-home technology has become an integral part of many 21st century households.
How does it work? Using your smartphone, tablet, or a dedicated controller, you can control all of the connected technology in your home. The best smart homes are effortlessly easy to use, designed for simplicity.
What are the advantages of a smart home? Aside from the obvious cool factor, comfort and convenience, security is a big one. Integrate your security system into your smart home system and monitor your property from anywhere. Lighting, shade, and drape control can give the appearance that you’re home when you’re away on vacation. It will even give you additional reassurance as you walk from your car to the front door whenever you come home at night.
The energy savings are another major advantage. You won’t waste another dime because the kids left the lights on. Likewise, integrating your HVAC into your smart home ensures it’s always the perfect temperature, never wasting energy by heating and cooling your home while you’re away.
So where do I begin if I’m interested in my own smart home? Begin by asking yourself what features would benefit you most.
- Lighting Control
- Automated Shades and Drapes
- Security Enhancements
- Entry Systems
- Whole-Home Entertainment
- Climate and Temperature Control
- Green Energy Management
