Smart home technology continues to make the lives of millions of Americans more convenient. Automating your Orlando, FL, home is one of the most useful things you can do to improve your quality of life. Below we have listed five easy ways to transform your home to a smart home without necessarily breaking the bank.
Installing a smart thermostat is an excellent way to computerize the temperature all over your living space. Only a few smart home gadgets can top a smart thermostat’s ability to deliver both cost savings and comfort.
These devices do more than just create a cooling and heating schedule based on when you anticipate being indoors to enjoy those benefits. They can automatically detect when you’re away or when you’re home so that your HVAC unit only operates when it’s necessary.
Smart Home Security Cameras
A high-end security camera will make it easy for you to monitor your home, particularly when you’re away. Indoor HD cameras can help you track your kids and pets. In contrast, outdoor cameras can help you monitor package delivery, and seamlessly direct your delivery guy where to place the parcel.
Some models, like the Nexia Wi-Fi Outdoor camera, incorporate lights that can illuminate your front porch. Cameras fixed onto doorbells can enable you to unlock a door for guests without needing to approach the door or even be around at the time.
Furthermore, most home intrusions begin with a ring of a home’s doorbell to check if anyone is around. If an invader tries to ring your doorbell while you’re at work, you can respond via your Nexia mobile app and deter them from gaining access to your home.
Adding smart lighting to your household is another brilliant way to make your Orlando home smart and your life more seamless. Using the Nexia app on your smartphone, you can control the lighting system in your household with only a single click. You can also manage unique settings for the lighting of each living space in your home.
Moreover, depending on the smart bulb you buy, you can light your living space with any color you select from the RGB spectrum. This is an excellent way to change your room’s mood, depending on the activity or event. Not to mention, these bulbs also last longer and are more energy-efficient than typical light bulbs.
Replacing your typical door lock with a smart door lock is a superb way to improve your home’s smartness and security. Smart door locks will save you the inconvenience of lost or missing keys. What’s more, they allow you to unlock your household’s doors by entering a unique pin, using a fingerprint or using a cell phone.
There are many companies in the market that offer reliable smart locks. However, we recommend smart locks powered by Nexia Home Security Bundle. You can then choose your lock preferences through the Nexia app on your phone or tablet.
Smart Speakers (Smart Home Assistants)
The most crucial step to make your Orlando home a smart home is to get a smart speaker. We recommend Nexia-powered smart assistants, which come in the form of a smart speaker.
You can use this device to control the other smart gadgets in your home, go shopping, answer questions, set reminders and a lot more! Additionally, Nexia supports all Z-Wave smart devices, meaning it’s a better choice over other smart speakers in the market.
