Imagine driving into your neighborhood after a long day, and with the push of a button on your smartphone, your home prepares to welcome you with open arms. Outside lights pull you in… blinds are raised… security system disarms… a/c adjusts to your ideal temperature… kitchen lights dim to the perfect level… music softly begins to play… and your flat screen in the family room opens to the big game.

Your sanctuary is ready – now, all it needs is you!

Smart home technology is all about the automation or management of your home and daily life. This could be anything from lights that can be controlled remotely or on a schedule, connected home entertainment systems for streaming media to multiple screens and rooms, and added features to enhance your home security.

Smart home technology might seem as if it’s only meant for gadget-gurus. But in reality, a huge selling point of smart home technology is that it can actually save money, in addition to making life so much more convenient.
