What Can Smart Homes Do For You as a Homeowner?
A smart home system connects electrical appliances, lights, thermostats, and wall outlets to a central device to make everyday life more convenient and energy efficient.
A Look at Smart Home Features
You’ll enjoy a wealth of advantages when your home is equipped with smart technology. As part of our residential electrical services, Bryant Electric Service installs state-of-the-art Lutron wireless home control systems. Some of the features of these systems include but aren’t limited to:
- Smart thermostat — Replace your outdated thermostat with the Lutron smart thermostat, which has an easy-to-use touch screen. It connects to your smart device so you can adjust your home’s temperature even when you’re away.
- Smart light switches and bulbs — Using LED smart bulbs can reduce your home’s energy consumption, which saves you money and helps conserve environmental resources. Pair these bulbs with smart switches to control the lighting in your home from anywhere — and program your lights to turn on and off at certain times.
- Smart outlets — With a Lutron smart home system installed by Bryant Electric Service, you can even control devices that are plugged into smart power outlets. This lets you easily manage electricity consumption by remotely turning devices off when not in use. Smart outlets also measure how much energy your appliances are using, with data analysis provided through a handy smartphone app.
Benefits of Having a Smart Home
Smart home technology can help you save on energy costs. In addition, being able to control your home’s lighting, temperature, and electricity consumption when you are away is convenient and easy. Equipping your home with smart technology can even up its security level.
According to a new report, 90 percent of consumers surveyed say security is the most important factor when deciding to purchase a smart home system. 72 percent of consumers cited the self-adjusting thermostat as the most appealing smart home feature.
Heating and cooling account for 54 percent of most households’ utility costs, so by automating both, homeowners can increase the efficiency of their heating and cooling systems and save both energy and money.
