What is a Smart Home?

A smart home is one that utilizes advanced technology to connect lighting, heating and cooling systems, appliances, electronics, audio/video entertainment systems and security systems so that they can communicate with each other and be controlled remotely by a time scheduled, from any room within the home or any mobile device outside the home.

While this type of home system is complex, homeowners with smart homes can rest assured knowing that they are always in complete control. The computer programs and all of your smart functions will only do what you the user programs them to do.

Controlling a Smart Home

Since all of the smart features in your home have their own unique internet addresses, you can control your smart home functions from any internet-enabled device. You can control your smart home using your home computer, your smartphone, your tablet or even your internet-enabled computer at work.

What Smart Homes Do

With a smart home, you can set your security system while you are on vacation, check your wireless security cameras when you are at work, close the garage door while you are out to dinner, set the temperature on your furnace when you are on vacation and help out the babysitter by turning off the television while you are at the movies. Any feature in your home that is connected to the internet can be controlled through a single device, and the list of features that are internet-enabled is quickly growing.

Smart Home Costs

When you can make sure that your security system is set while you are at work, you are saving money by protecting your home and possessions. The ability to change the temperature in your home whenever you want, and to even turn down the furnace while you are on vacation, means that you can save a great deal of money on your energy bills. A smart home puts you in complete control of everything, and that means that you can create the comfortable, energy efficient and safe home you have always wanted.

There are plenty of ways to make the latest technology work in your home’s favor, resulting in a financial return. If you want a modern, efficient home that gives you the ability to be in complete control, then contact Handyman Connection of Lexington and let’s get the process started.
