Understanding the Different Smart Products

Smart products have come a long way in the last decade. Today’s home amenities are designed to work across multiple systems and devices, that are designed to synchronize and streamline the way the entire home functions. Here are some of the most innovative home smart products that we’ve seen and helped to install in recent years:

  • Home Automation: A home automation system gives homeowners control over the devices inside their homes through an app that can be set on their mobile phones. Homeowners can control their sprinklers, HVAC system, lighting, door and window locks, security cameras, and so much more from virtually anywhere on the planet.
  • Smart Thermostat: A smart thermostat also helps you save money on your energy bill, thanks to better control of your home’s heating and cooling units. For added convenience, you can sync the thermostat with your smartphone, tablet, and even your voice.
  • EV Chargers: Electric cars are becoming more popular thanks to increasing gas prices and increased environmental awareness. However, one thing you’ll need before you decide to go green is an EV charger. This charger represents your ability to properly charge your car without raising your electric bill. Keep in mind that some rewiring may be necessary to accommodate the type of outlet required for this charger.
  • Smart Doorbell Systems: As crime gets more sophisticated, so do solutions to stop it. A smart doorbell system is an advanced device you can use to monitor your property 24 hours a day from an application on your smartphone. In addition, some packages come with video, microphone, and speakers so you can even speak with people arriving at your doorstep through the app if necessary.
