Smart Home Technology

Does your property still use traditional locks, lights and doorbells? If so it could be time to upgrade as it can prove to be more secure! Upgrading your property can also cut your electricity bill and be more convenient and give you more confidence!

A few examples of “Smart Tech” are:

Smart Doorbells:

There are many smart doorbells available when you’re shopping around online. The usual smart doorbell can alert your smart phone when someone is ringing the doorbell, the more you spend the more features you will get! Top of the range doorbells can provide you with a HD video feed of who is at your door, these can also be linked to smart locks and you can let delivery men etc. in to drop off your parcel when you aren’t at home.

Smart Locks:

Smart locks can be unlocked and locked using your smartphone, which has multiple benefits such as not needing your keys and some locks even have keypad entry meaning you don’t need your phone on you! This means you will no longer have to worry about getting locked out. As you can change the code easily, you could also let delivery companies know the code so they can drop your parcel off when you aren’t in, obviously this means you would have to put your trust into the company.

Smart Lighting:

One of the biggest smart tech products out there now is smart lighting. They are very popular as they are just plug and play and all you need to do is download an app! Phillips Hue is one of the most recognised brands out there now, brands like these offer other smart tech so you can link everything into one app making it a lot easier to control your home. The reason the lighting is classed as “Smart” is because you can change everything from the brightness of it to what colour it emits, some even come with built in speakers!

Smart Thermostats:

Smart thermostats allow you to change and set your home temperature from wherever you are, as long as you have the connected smart phone or tablet etc. This is one of the latest and greatest ways to save money on your electricity bill. Some top of the range thermostats come with sensors that you place outside, these then change the thermostat temperature accordingly.

By upgrading all your existing devices to smart devices you are protecting your family and home every minute of the day. Put yourself in control and save money whilst you are at it! If this is something you’re interested in then feel free to give us a call!
