It’s almost hard to believe there was a time not too long ago when an automated home was the subject of science fiction. Today, smart homes that help simplify our lives are becoming more commonplace with each passing day.

But smart tech isn’t just about making life easier. It’s also about improving our lives from cutting energy usage to making our homes safer and more secure.

In this post from SevenAV, we’re breaking down some of the best smart tech must-haves for your Twin Cities smart home installation. To transform the way you live with smart features, give us a call today!

1.   Smart Locks

Smart locks allow you to lock and unlock your home from anywhere, even if you’re not home. If a family member is locked out or you’ve got guests visiting from out of town, all you have to do is sign in to your smart lock app and unlock the door.

Smart locks can also improve your home security by allowing you to access data on when your doors were opened. You can even schedule your doors to lock if they’ve been left unlocked for too long, so you never have to worry about home security issues because you forgot to lock up before work.

2.   Smart Lighting

With smart lighting options like Philips Hue, you can establish lighting profiles for studying, TV viewing, and anything else your family has on the schedule. You can also remotely turn your lights on and off from anywhere or schedule lighting changes so you never have to worry about coming home to a dark house at the end of the day.

3.   Smart Thermostat

With a smart thermostat, you can schedule your heating and cooling system to match your lifestyle. Save money while you’re asleep or at work by adjusting the thermostat, then schedule it to a more comfortable temperature at the end of the workday.

4.   Smart Smoke Detector

With a smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector, you can rest assured your family will be safe in case of a fire. If your smoke detector system is triggered, you’ll receive an early warning with a friendly voice. Sensors can look for fast-burning or smoldering and identify where the danger is located. These systems also include phone alerts so you’ll be notified even if you’re away from home. And forget about those annoying chirps reminding you to replace the battery. Instead, these devices test themselves daily and notify you if the batteries need to be replaced.
