Smart home upgrades in your home not only allow for home automation but it can even produce a return on your investment by upping the value of your home. As millennials hit the housing market, smart technology and energy-efficient appliances are attracting more home buyers. These upgrades also show that your home’s wiring is up to date and that the previous owner cared for the home by having the newest technology installed. Colvin Electric can help you automate your home with these smart home upgrades.
Smart Lighting Can Set The Mood
Not only does smart lighting make life a little easier, but it can also be customized, discreet, and energy-efficient. This technology allows for lights to be controlled from the convenience of one’s cell phone and settings can be applied to have timers for when people are no longer awake, options for dimmer lighting and if you buy certain models, you can even change the colors. Smart lighting can also be connected to smart home devices like Google Home and Amazon Alexa in which the owner can control the lights with a simple voice command. Installing smart lighting can also help you save energy by ensuring things are only turned on when home or scheduled to be ready for you when you arrive. Maintaining these settings can help reduce energy bills and most importantly your carbon footprint by running your systems only when necessary.
Feel Safe with Home Security
There are many security appliances on the market to help secure your home so your family can feel safe and secure. Smart doorbells offer a screen of protection right at your front door, and you can see who may be on your property from any mobile device or computer. Many models allow you to hear and see what may be at your home’s entrance as soon as it detects motion and may even send a notification as soon as something is detected.
Security cameras around the outside of your home can help you have peace of mind about anyone unwanted being on your property, many devices now have applications so that the footage can be viewed directly from your phone, ensuring you know what’s going on even if you aren’t at home.
Another security measure Colvin Electric can help install in your home is motion sensors. These devices can often have a longer range than other appliances and can be installed inside, as well as outside, to detect any movement when you are not there. All of these security options can offer that extra barrier of protection between your family, your home, and any outside dangers.
These home upgrades not only add home value but give you convenience, security, and energy efficiency. Are you ready to install home automation devices for your family? Contact Colvin Electric today and let us help you out with your residential electrical needs!
