Technology is constantly changing and new devices are always emerging that make our lives better, our schedules more convenient and our tasks easier to perform. Lots of these devices can help us manage our homes more efficiently and securely and feature technology that allows us to care for our homes even while we’re away. At Corbin Electrical, we specialize in designing and installing devices and complete systems that help you take advantage of the benefits of smart home technology. Here are a few of the gadgets and devices you might want to consider if you’re interested in adding smart technology to your home:
- Smart “hubs”
If you’re interested in smart home technology for your home, it’s only appropriate that smart hubs get listed first here. That’s because a smart hub can serve as your “mission control” for multiple smart devices, making it easier for you to manage your devices both at home and remotely. If you fancy yourself Captain Kirk in charge of the Enterprise, a smart hub is probably a good choice for your home.
- Electronic thermostats
Forget about what you think an electronic thermostat is all about; these thermostats learn from your behaviors to automatically adjust heating and cooling based on your prior actions. And that’s not all – some units can also learn how long it takes for your furnace or air conditioner to reach a desired temperature so they can plan when to make adjustments to meet your anticipated temperature needs. Plus, they can let you know when you’re making a wise energy choice that can result in savings – and a lower carbon footprint.
- Smart locks
These locks use touchpads to let you control who enters your house and when they can enter, and they allow you to set specific, unique entry codes for temporary use, such as when you have a house guest, dog walker or house sitter. And, they can notify you when someone has entered your home, wherever you happen to be.
- Home security and monitoring
These systems are designed to allow you to monitor your home’s security while you’re at work, on a trip or just out shopping. Hooked up to a monitoring company, they can notify the authorities when something goes wrong so you have ultimate peace of mind.
At Corbin Electrical Services, we love helping homeowners create the smart home of their dreams. From structured wiring designed to accommodate current and future technology to installing systems that allow you to monitor and control devices in your home, whether you’re home or not, our licensed contractors can help you design a system that meets all your unique needs.
