Smart Home Technology Starter Guide
Learn about the Best Ways to Make Your Home Smarter
Ever wanted to live in a smart home? It’s not a dream for the distant future. Many homeowners don’t realize that smart home technology is available today. Right within your New York home, you can take advantage of devices that make life more comfortable, convenient, and secure!
The big question is this: what’s the best way to get started? Below, we cover the most popular options.
First Things First: What’s a Smart Home?
A smart home isn’t just about having a few “smart” devices sprinkled throughout each room. It’s about having all of those devices work together as one cohesive system. By upgrading components in your home (such as the window shades or light switches), you not only gain the ability to control them remotely, but also have them communicate with each other and react automatically on your behalf.
The whole system acts intelligently to keep your home energy efficient, safe from intruders, beautifully designed, and more. Whatever your goals are for your technology, the odds are likely that all you need is the right system setup to achieve them!
And the best part? All of the smart home technology is super easy to use. Just check out our video tutorials page to get a feel for what it would be like to control the system.
What Should I Make Smarter?
The sky is the limit for what you can upgrade, but there are certainly some easy and popular starting points that are worth considering:
- Media Control: Connect all of the sound systems, TVs, cable boxes, gaming consoles, and more in every room of your home. So in turn, you will have easy access to all your favorite media and devices.
- Climate Control: Ensure your home is always the perfect temperature for comfort and energy efficiency with a smart thermostat. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust the temperature from anywhere, anytime.
- Lighting Control: Do more than just turn the lights on and off throughout your home. With lighting control, you can easily adjust every light fixture in every room to be the perfect brightness for any given occasion.
- Shade Control: At the same time as you’re controlling the artificial light in the room, you can maintain control over the natural light by investing in motorized shades. Without having to walk over to windows to close the blinds or draw the shades, you can easily adjust them to have just the right amount of natural light.
The best thing about all of these things listed above is that you can control them all from our simple-to-use application on your smart device.
