Ways to Make Your Summerlin New Home Smarter
With each passing day, more advancement in technology hits the market. Innovations are springing up to simplify life in all areas of the home. Technology has always made home life easier for people from washing machines do your laundry to dishwashers to clean your dishes. Now, new inventions have reached other areas in the home, and integration with your smartphone allows you to manage it from anywhere in the world. Take advantage of these smart new gadgets for your Summerlin home.
Smart doorbells allow you to monitor people outside your door via video link. You can even have a conversation with visitors when you are not home. A smart doorbell is not expensive, and you can quickly install it — so long as your home was initially wired for a doorbell. You can even pair the smart doorbell with other technology in your home for extra security.
Smart locks provide additional security for your doors, especially entry points. They come designed with touchpads and lack a keyhole. Aside from using the touchpads to unlock your home, you can also use your smartphone to open your door if you are unable to use the touchpad, or you want to let someone into your house without giving them your password. Smart locks allow you to create passcodes for different people that enter your home, which enables you to know who comes in and when they gain entry.
Learning thermostats analyze the pattern of energy usage in your home and make adjustments automatically to fit your routine. Using a smart thermostat allows you to become more efficient in energy management. You can replace your old thermostat with smart ones, and some utilities even offer special programs to help you do so. Most smart thermostats limit the use of power when you are not at home and adjust the temperature to coincide with when you return.
Smart Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
The smart smoke detector does not only make the ‘beep’ alert to indicate smoke; it can alert you on your phone when you are not home of a fire outbreak and pinpoint precisely where the fire is coming from. It can also integrate with other smart devices in your home to reduce fire damage to the minimum. Carbon monoxide detectors alert you to detect any build-up of the deadly, odorless gas in your home, allowing you to rescue pets or disabled housemates from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Sometimes, having to clean your home by yourself is a lot of work. The robot vacuum has eliminated the stress and time required to vacuum your home. A robotic vacuum cleans your floors by making frequent trips around your home, sucking up dirt, crumbs, and debris lying on the floor. Because you can set them to run at night or when you are away from home, you can wake up or come home to clean floors
Turning your home to a smart home is the way to save energy and money, too, as most smart appliances are also energy efficient. Many newer homes come wired for smart devices, so let me know if having a smart home is high on your list.
