3 Improvements to Make Your Home Smarter
Posted on June 9th, 2016 by Devine Bros
Turning your house into a smart home doesn’t require robots or a multi-million dollar budget. Here are three affordable, easy-to-install gadgets that can help make your life easier and bring your home into the 21st century.
Home Security Systems
Security systems have long been available for homes, but the models on today’s market are more technologically advanced than ever. Smaller cameras are more easily hidden, and some even offer two-way microphone communication. Plus, many newer systems connect to your smartphone, allowing you to keep tabs on your home from across the world.
Keys are a thing of the past with the variety of electronic locks available. Some of these smart locks come fully-equipped with features such as numerical code unlock, bluetooth unlock via phone, auto-unlock when you get close to the door, and timed access to guests through temporary email codes.
Programmable thermostats don’t just make your home more comfortable, they save you money while doing so. Running the air conditioner while everyone is at work wastes money, but nobody wants to come home to a hot house. A programmable thermostat lets you have the best of both worlds – your A/C won’t run all day, but you can set it to turn on an hour before you come home, giving it enough time to make sure you arrive to a cool, comfortable house.
