The right technology solutions can reduce homeowners' carbon footprint and lower their energy bills.
For example, smart lighting systems use motion sensors that detect when a room is occupied to ensure that lights are only on when needed. Plus, you can dim the lights to lessen energy usage. You can also schedule your lights to turn on only when you need them and turn off when you don’t.
With motorized window treatments, you can take advantage of natural lighting by scheduling your shades to open on their own in the morning, minimizing your reliance on electric lights.
Additionally, your HVAC system can automatically go into energy-saving mode when you leave for work and even trigger your shades to close when a room gets too warm.
Wellness and health technologies have become more widespread due to the ongoing pandemic. From fitness technology like Peloton bikes to wearable wellness tech to intelligent air purification systems, there is an array of smart health and wellness solutions that are increasingly entering the home.
Home automation can help improve your wellbeing in several ways, from helping you harness the benefits of natural light at the right time to facilitating the creation of biophilic spaces that bring the benefits of the outdoors inside your home at the touch of a button.
Residential security solutions are always evolving to better serve homeowners and help them protect what matters most. Today’s surveillance cameras feature 4K resolution and advanced video analytics, and homeowners can easily monitor everything from locks to lights from anywhere in the world.
Smart security systems can also send you real-time alerts to suspicious activity, fire, or leaks, and feature vacation mode that triggers your shades, lights, and entertainment system to turn on and off throughout the day to simulate that someone is home.
Additionally, access control systems allow you to manage and monitor who enters your home from your smart device of choice.
All these security features are accessible from one easy-to-use interface that you can use to access your lights, motorized shades, audio-video components, thermostats, door locks, surveillance feed, and more!
