Is Your Home as Smart as You?

Make your home a smart home.

Smart Home Definition

Smart HomeWe all know about smartphones and smart TVs.  But, is your home “smart” and up to speed?  Are you ready for home automation? Remember the popular cartoon, “The Jetsons?”  Many of the advances that the show imagined are now a reality, or in development.

Any device in your home that uses electricity can be put on your home network and be at your command. Whether you give that command by voice, remote control, tablet or smartphone, the home reacts. Most applications relate to lighting, home security, home theater systems and entertainment, and thermostat regulation

You set the schedule and the rest is automated and based on your personal preferences.  This provides convenience, peace of mind, control, money savings, and an overall smarter home.


Control and automate just about every device and appliance within your home whether you are at home or not. We’re all familiar with controlling our TV from the couch, but there are many other things you can do from the couch, or from far away.

Imagine adjusting the temperature from your bed or controlling the volume of your whole-house audio system from any room. Or adjusting the wall/ceiling heater in your bathroom to on chilly mornings 5 minutes before your alarm clock goes off.  How convenient is that?


Home automation provides security while safeguarding your home. From a security camera’s peering eye to a water sensor that will alert you of a possible costly leak, an automated home keeps your property under surveillance, so you can react at a moment’s notice.

With the touch of a button, we all open gates and garage doors from the car upon arriving home.  Think about how much safer you’ll feel with the convenience of turning on lights from your key fob when approaching or arriving home. You can’t put a price or a value on safety. Home automation can make you feel safe and much more.


Who doesn’t like saving money?  Home automation works efficiently for you, saving money on your utilities and providing overall convenience.  You can adjust the temperature to heat/cool as specific times from anywhere.  All it takes is a few seconds to save you hundreds of dollars.
