Converting your New Home to a Smart Home

A smart home.

A convenient home.

Your home.

A ‘connected’ smart home makes your life easier.

Control appliances from anywhere in the world! Your home system can be as simple as a thermostat that allows you to adjust your temperature from afar, or as complex as a network of sensors, cameras, and alarms.

Smart homes automate mundane tasks. For example, a smart thermostat can learn your preferences and adjust the temperature accordingly. You can use voice commands to correct any temperature changes you don’t like.

Your smart home listens to you. Hmm, that is smart.

Say goodbye to misplacing your remote control or trying to find the light switch. Simply control your lights and thermostat with a simple voice command. A smart home is also secure. Owners can now keep tabs on their property while they’re away.

Pay now. Save later.

Converting your new home may cost between $2,000 to $6,000. That’s a small price to pay for the convenience and energy savings you’ll experience every day. The best part of converting into a smart home is that you can implement as much, or as little, as you want.

One smart room at a time.

Eliminate the feeling of being overwhelmed by automating one room, and then use that as a model for other rooms in your home. Alternatively, you can pick one feature that you want to automate and expand from there. Think about what would make life easier for each person in the house: better lighting, or a new TV?

Choose your smart assistant

Alexa, Google Assistant, and Microsoft Cortana each have their own strengths. If you’re looking for the most home integration and ease of use, then Alexa is probably your best bet. On the other hand, if you just want something customizable that works with your existing devices, try one of the others instead.

Smart lighting system

Smart lighting systems, controlled by your phone or tablet, also let you adjust lights with voice commands. And brightness? Personalize the light’s intensity without moving from the couch. Smart lighting systems can reduce electricity consumption by up to 80%. Smart bulbs also last longer, so more money in your pocket.

Smart security systems

If something is out of the ordinary, the security system will notify you immediately via text message or email. Take action from wherever you are, whether that means calling the police or locking your front door.

Smart doorbells

Busy? Or away from home? See, hear, and speak with visitors at your door, from anywhere, using your smartphone. Identify and record who is at your front door, share the saved footage with the police.

And with built-in motion sensors alert you when someone approaches your home. You’ll know exactly when an intruder is getting close.

Smart door locks

Using a smartphone app or a unique code, only you can deactivate these devices. You can change the code at any time if you want to remove someone’s ability to lock or unlock the door.

Smart thermostat

All aspects of the HVAC system, including the thermostat, use sensors, such as motion detectors. It’s an easy way to lower your energy bills. The device automatically shuts off the air conditioner when you leave the house, and it turns it back on when you return.

You can spend less time fiddling with controls and more time enjoying a comfortable environment.

Smart cleaners

Robot vacuums and robot mops are the most efficient way to clean your home.

Program them to clean at certain times of the day, setting them up on a schedule. If you want them to clean every week on Mondays at 8 am, just enter that information into your app.

Smart kitchen appliances

Smart fridges allow you to track food supply levels at a glance via an app on your phone or computer. You can also set reminders for when items need replacing.

Meal planning is made easier by having your plan available on the app. Some smart fridges even allow you to order the food you need for your meals.

Smart ovens feature remote control functions, so home cooks don’t have to stand next to the stove to monitor food. Some models even let you track cooking progress and set timers.
