Smart Home Technology: Upgrades to ConsiderWhether you are planning new home construction or a major home renovation, you may find yourself asking whether "smart” appliances are right for you. Smart home technology can control everything from garage doors to security systems to air conditioners with the touch of a finger, and a new wave of whole-home apps are enabling all of these devices. Smart appliances don't need to be complicated— learn how they can help manage your home energy use and boost efficiency.
While traditional programmable thermostats allow you adjust the temperature in your home based on the time of day— some smart thermostats take it a step further by learning from your temperature preferences, allowing you to control your home’s climate remotely, and showing your energy consumption in real-time.
Smart refrigerators on the market today let you search the internet for recipes, create shopping lists, and even manage your foods’ expiration dates. Even more exciting are state-of-the-art internal refrigerator cameras, which allow grocery shoppers to manage their inventory from the supermarket.
Smart Washer and Dryers
Smart washer-and-dryer combos allow you to monitor and manage your laundry loads even when you’re away from home. You can start loads remotely from your smartphone, receive alerts when cycles finish, and even be reminded for optimal maintenance. In addition, smart energy features can track and display how much energy is being used so you know where to conserve.
Smart Home Energy Dashboards
Want to see the savings from your investment in smart appliances? Futuristic smart home energy dashboards automate your smart appliances to reduce energy consumption where it’s being wasted. Active control systems can dim lights, tweak heating & cooling temperatures, and turn off idling appliances where needed.
