How Smart Home Automation Can Add Convenience to Your Life and Money in Your Pocket

At one point in time, home automation and control with gadgets and gizmos was something left for the techy-type. But in the last 10 years, these technologies have become extremely user-friendly and now provide convenience and countless solutions and savings to your everyday life. With a customized home automation system, you can control and monitor your security, temperature, lighting, appliances and more from any location, with your favourite mobile device. 

Our Smart Home Automation programs and systems come completely customizable to fit your specific home-owner needs. Some key features include:

Security and Access Control

By integrating your home security system with your home automation, you open the door to more possibilities. A smart security system goes beyond the basics of alarming you during an emergency. It allows you to access and receive real-time alerts and insights to potential issues (eg: unexpected access or entry, video surveillance footage, carbon monoxide or fire alerts, water leakages and more). You also won’t have to question whether you forgot to lock the door or not when you left. Through the mobile app you are able to lock or unlock synced access points, no matter your location, ensuring your home is secure at all times.

Wireless Climate Control

Did you know that by lowering your thermostat 3 degrees, you can save 10% on your energy bill? By upgrading to a smart thermostat, you will be able to set sensors, timers and schedules for your home heating and cooling equipment, which will enable you to have reliable and controlled comfort when you need it most. You can lower temperature while away on vacation or at work, and schedule your system to heat back up just in time for you to return to the house. This will also help you use less energy during on-peak times, saving you energy and costs on your next bill. If you haven’t already, upgrade your home to a smart thermostat and start saving!

Automatic Lighting

It’s never nice to come home to a pitch-black house at the end of a long day. With scheduled lighting control you won’t have to again. You can either set a recurring schedule for interior or exterior lighting to turn on/off when you want it, or you can access real-time control through the system app. This is also a great feature to use while on vacation to give the appearance that your home is occupied, protecting it from burglars or other unwanted guests.


Have you ever left the house and wondered if you forgot to unplug the coffee pot, iron or other hot appliance? By installing smart plugs throughout your home, you can be rest-assured that appliances can be turned off or controlled, even when you are not at the house.
