Smart home technology has become a way of life, and for those in the know, a life-saver. These devices not only save us time and potentially money, they give us peace of mind knowing just about any aspect of our home can be viewed, programmed, and controlled from anywhere in the world. We’ll get into the benefits of a fully-integrated Raleigh smart home, but first — let’s answer a few foundational questions:
What’s a smart home in Raleigh, anyway?
A smart home is one where at least one appliance or device that controls a function of the home is connected to the internet and can be controlled remotely and on-demand.
What are some examples of smart home devices?
- Door Locks
- Garage Door Openers
What’s a fully-integrated Raleigh smart home?
The number of smart devices can add up, and so can the apps, passwords, and various ways to access them. A fully-integrated smart home is one in which all your smart home products work together to create one, easy-to-use system that’s controlled by voice or remotely from a single program or app. From one central hub you can: lock and unlock your front door, program your thermostat to automatically adjust according to time and outside temperature, turn lights off and on, monitor cameras, and interact with guests from wherever you are, among other things.
Why integrate all my smart home products?
The #1 reason is convenience. You have enough to think about in a day. The systems and appliances in your home no longer have to be one of them. Set your home to perform and react the way you want it to… and forget it.
Peace of mind is a close second. If you’re out of town and realized you didn’t set the alarm, no problem. Log into the app, set the alarm, then go ahead and raise the thermostat while you’re at it. If you’re on your way home at night and not sure if you left the porch light on, just pull out your phone and turn every light on in the house if you’d like… oh, and unlock the front door from your car so you don’t have to fumble with bags and keys.
