Especially since there are so many different options to choose from, and there are endless amounts of information out there. This can become very overwhelming! Keep it simple and start by checking out a few of the options we offer. Get your wheels turning about what you would like to include in your future home. Below, we will explore some options we offer.
How often do you forget to adjust you’re a/c before leaving your home? Smart thermostats eliminate this obstacle. It allows you to adjust your thermostat from across the country. The NEST smart thermostat also learns what temperatures you like and will adjust itself while you are away. You will have the ability to see how much energy you use throughout the day and week by viewing your Energy History. This will help you find ways to use less energy during the times you are using the most. These capabilities will lower your bill and keep you from losing your cool!
Another great feature is the keyless entry. This eliminates the worry of someone being locked out or losing your house key. This feature allows you to not only lock your doors from your smartphone, but it also allows you to enter your home using the keypad. This allows you to give your code to your trusted friends in family members without having to worry about the hassle of leaving a spare key out or getting a new key made.
The NEST Hello video Doorbell allows you to see the different visitors you have before opening the door and while you are away. The camera feature added to this doorbell gives you peace of mind by knowing who is out there before even moving from your couch. The camera produces bright images even at night when it is dark outside and shows a full view of your porch from the ground up. The 24/7 streaming feature gives you the option to check-in anytime or view the history of the footage. It increases security around your home and helps create a safer environment. The doorbell allows you to see all your visitors good and bad.
These are just a few of the smart home features that we offer. Hopefully, this has provided you with some ideas of which features you’d like to include in your future home. Talk to one of our building consultants to help you find the best package for your lifestyle!
