Small steps to a smarter home
Brought to you by Mike Hall, Hasson Company Realtors - Real Estate INSIDER -
Technology for your home doesnt 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 youre away and can even use local weather information to make energy-saving temperature changes automatically.
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.
