With today’s modern, wireless technology every home can be a smart home if you choose. Installing smart tech in your Northern Colorado home doesn’t require as much effort these days—no wires, no problems, right? Here are 5 smart home appliances to consider installing when you remodel (or whenever you want!) that will improve your overall comfort and accessibility.
Smart Thermostat: For keeping your energy bills low
Want to optimize your heating and cooling? Looking for an easy way to keep energy bills low, even when you’re away? Consider installing a smart thermostat in your home—like the Nest or the EcoBee. How does it work? Well, the Nest’s Wi-Fi-enabled learning thermostat is designed to optimize the temperature in your home to keep comfort levels consistent. It learns and adapts to your own personal habits and preferences—for example, it will learn that you like to turn down the heat when you go to work and will begin to do so automatically.
Smart Doorbell: For keeping an eye on things
Looking for peace of mind in a new neighborhood? Smart doorbells are a great investment as many now come equipped with video surveillance functionality to help you see who’s knocking. Nest, the makers of the smart thermostat, have also gotten into the business of designing smart doorbells—like the Nest Hello.
Smart Hub: For connecting all of your devices
Want to automate your home for easier access or voice control? That’s as easy as purchasing an Amazon Echo or Google Home. For example, the Google Home Hub is compatible with over 5,000 smart devices to connect everything in one location and make your home voice activated.
Smart Shades: For maintaining ultimate comfort
Wouldn’t you love to be able to pull down the shades and cozy up without ever leaving the couch? When you automate your home with smart shades, you can. Some of our favorites are the Lutron Serena remote control shades—but there are so many great options on the market. With smart shades, you don’t have to lift a finger when the sun is in your eyes, just conveniently control your shades with a remote or from your smart phone.
Smart Refrigerator: For easier meal prep
Wish you could create grocery lists that sync to your smartphone in real-time? Want to always know what’s in your fridge…even when you’re at the grocery store? Smart refrigerators are the future of meal prep. With the inclusions of internal cameras, flexible user-controlled cooling options, and the ability for you to connect to your smartphone or hub, you can make cooking, grocery shopping, and sending out family calendar alerts a breeze. From Samsung to LG, you can find a smart refrigerator that fits your needs and your budget.
