Wouldn’t it be great if your porch lights turned on when you were a mile from home?
It’s possible – and affordable – with today’s smart home technology.
According to a recent survey by Coldwell Banker and CNET, 87-percent of those who have smart home products say it makes their life easier. And nine in ten people would recommend smart home technology.
If you have a wireless security system, it is simple to add smart lights, locks and thermostats that can be controlled using a smartphone, tablet or computer.
QEI Security & Technology customers can use our TEQHoM INTERACTIVE app to automate smart home features. For example, using Geo-Services, you can set your porch lights to come on when you are one mile from home. Learn more about lighting control.
Want to go bigger? The options are endless with a control system. Program one button to turn off all the lights in your home, lock the doors and arm the security system. You can even add your pool, hot tub and irrigation system, so all are controlled using your smart phone, tablet or remote control.
Nearly half of survey respondents said smart home products save them money – an average of $98.30 per month. That’s a savings of over $1,100 per year.
Fifty-seven percent of Americans who have smart home items say those products save them an average of 30 minutes per day.
If you forget to close the garage door or arm the security system, you’ll save at least 30 minutes by not having to return home to do it (you can do it with your smartphone using the free app!).
