Mike Hall, Hasson Company RealtorsTechnology for your home doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, there are some fun and easy ways to a smarter home. Assuming you already have Wi-Fi at home, try one of my favorite home-tech starters:

The Roost 9V Smart Battery: easy at just $35, this includes a sensor chip and supports any smoke and CO alarms in your home (www.getroost.com/). When the alarm goes off, the Roost battery sends you a message via text, email or phone call.

Nest Learning Thermostat – According to Energy Trust of Oregon (energytrust.org/), a smart thermostat can help reduce heating costs and make your home more comfortable. It knows when you’re away and can even use local weather information to make energy-saving temperature changes automatically.

Oregon customers of GE, Pacific Power, NW Natural or Cascade Natural Gas heating with electricity or natural gas may be eligible for a $50 incentive to buy a Nest Learning Thermostat (retail $249). The home's heating system must be a forced-air gas furnace, electric forced-air or a ducted heat pump with electric furnace backup. For further details about credit eligibility, call 1-866-368-7878 or write HYPERLINK "mailto:existinghomes@energytrust.org" This email address is being protected from spambots.

Kwikset Home Connect Technology (www.kwikset.com/). The company offers many high-tech tools and options, but I recommend you start with their page on “Remote Access: for an easy way to lock and unlock remotely, see when children come home, and control access for neighbors, workmen or housecleaners.

Have fun!
