Having the newest gadgets is fun, and how often do we utilize these technological advances in our cars, at work, or as busy people on the go? One place not everyone has taken advantage of technology is in the home.
Over the past few years, numerous appliances and devices have been developed to make your home “smarter.” Even better, it can help make the systems in your house run more efficiently, saving you money. If you haven’t delved into incorporating Smart technology into your home, here are some excellent ways to do so.
One of the first home energy-saving technologies people think of are Smart Thermostats. They’ve gained notice and made optimizing your heating and cooling systems easier than ever. Two of the most notable systems are Nest and Ecobee. However, several other brands are swiftly making their entrance into the market. Things that Smart Thermostats can do include:
- Control temperature settings from your mobile devices and apps
- Program different temperatures by day and time
- Some have adaptive technology, allowing them to further optimize your heating and cooling system and adjust to the user’s behavior through data collected
- Certain systems include geofencing, a perimeter that lets your Smart system know if you’re home or not, and adjust heating/cooling accordingly
Smart Home Sensors
