With today’s technology, you can easily convert your home into a smart home. Regardless of what kind of home you have, adding these simple features will provide the upgrade you need!
#1 UPGRADE YOUR WI-FI
Having a strong Wi-Fi connection in your home is the first step to making your home a smart home. If you only have Wi-Fi in one location, you’ll have to expand this feature throughout the home in order for your smart devices to properly communicate with other each other. If your Wi-Fi can’t reach certain rooms, smart devices won’t work efficiently.
#2 INSTALL SMART LIGHTS
Adding smart lights to your home allows you to turn on, turn off, and dim your lights through an app on your smart device. If you’re on vacation, you can schedule your lights to turn on or off to make it appear as though someone is home. Simply turning on your lights can lower the chances of a home invasion.
#3 SMART THERMOSTAT CONTROL
Smart thermostats are great energy and money savers. Allow your thermostat to learn your habits and crank up the heat or AC when needed. If the weather is a little warmer or cooler than expected, easily adjust your thermostat from your smart device so your home can be the perfect temperature when you arrive.
#4 VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
Keep an eye on your home no matter where you are. Having home security cameras provides peace of mind and allows you to check up on your pets while you’re away. With video surveillance, you can live stream to your smart device, record suspicious activity, see who’s at the door and make sure your kids get home safely.
#5 SMART SECURITY SYSTEM
Installing a quality security system that uses smart sensors throughout the home to monitor doors, windows and detect motion will provide the extra security your family needs. Choose a system that is 100 percent wireless, has tamper resistant technology and 24/7 monitoring. Since we are always on-the-go, install a smart security system that provides free mobile apps to control and monitor your smart home.
If this seems overwhelming, you can get all of the above in one package with BluGuard Security. One of our knowledgeable technicians will arrive to install your equipment, configure the control panel and walk you through how to use your new system.
