We have to thank folks like Rogers Smart Home Monitoring for bringing extra attention to the benefits of smart home monitoring and smart home automation. What we love about it is that it’s possible to have a smart home solution WITHOUT any expensive monthly fees! Yes that’s right. You don’t have to spend $40 or $50 or $60 per month to make your home smart. You can do-it-yourself or we can help you find a local installer.
So what is Smart Home Monitoring and Smart Home Automation? It’s the ability to remotely monitor and control your home or business lighting, appliances, heating/air conditioning, security systems and security camera systems. You can also receive email or text messages to let you know when something has happened – like the alarm was disarmed for example. You can receive images or check on cameras remotely too. That remote control can be via Internet browser, iPhone or Android Smart Phone, tablet or even telephone. Yes, some of us still use good old telephones!
What do you need? Well that depends on what you want to do. You can choose to simply control a few lights or your HVAC (heating/air conditioning) system while away. We’ll go over some solutions in subsequent articles, but in the mean time please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information and we’ll help you figure out what you need to make your Home Smarter.
