Who are the Jones’? And why is keeping up with them so exhausting, yet we feel is SO necessary? While, it may not always be necessary, it can definitely be exhausting and yet, a good choice if you are following their SMART HOME trends. For those that are way behind the Jones’, making your home a SMART HOME has the possibility of bringing a sense of zen to your life, the environment and your pocketbook. Here is just a quick glance at the SMART HOME movement and a couple of sites worth checking out that can take you further on this journey.
what is a SMART HOME?
According to smarthomeusa.com, “Smart Home is the term commonly used to define a residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by phone or internet.”
why have a SMART HOME?
- Going out on a Friday night date and forgetting if you left the stove on. With a SMART HOME feature, you can check from afar and turn the stove off.
- Coming home late at night by yourself can be a little intimidating. With certain SMART HOME features, you have the ability to turn the lights on before you arrive.
- Being on vacation should be worry free unless you have a nagging feeling that you left the doors unlocked. No worries, lock them from the convenience of your phone.
- Away for the weekend and getting an alert that someone was trying to break in? Call the authorities, as well as, turn on the lights and the TV as a quick deterent with ease from wherever you may be.
- Save time and money by allowing your SMART HOME technology to do the work for you. Connect your lights, a/c and furnace to sensors to enter savings mode when you leave a room.
- Connect your SMART HOME to a voice control device such as Google Voice or Alexa and control all your electronic devices by the sound and command of your voice.
There are many different levels that you can take your SMART HOME, from simple and inexpensive to technical and a big investment.
