Smart Home Technologies From cars to phones, smart technology is probably part of your everyday life, except when you are home. Many technology companies have realized this, and have started creating smart home technology, which allows you to control various parts of your home with the touch of your finger. Consider upgrading with these smart home technologies to advance your home into the future.
- Garage door – you no longer have to fumble around in your glove box to find your garage door opener when you get home. The Chamberlain MyQ Garage Door Opener puts up a wireless fence that is able to detect when you pull into your driveway and will open your garage for you. It will also close the garage once your car is parked safely inside.
- Smart locks – from keypad entries to fingerprint scanners, new door locks look like something out of a top-secret government building. They can also eliminate the hassle of trying to find the right key on your keychain when walking into your home with an arm full of groceries.
- Thermostats – new thermostats, such as the Nest Thermostat will learn your preferences, (when you come and go) in just one week. This means that you essentially never have to touch it 7 days after you install it.
- Lights – the Belkin WeMo Switch+Motion allows you to use your smartphone to turn on and off lights in your house, no matter how far away you are, which means you never have to come home to a dark room.
No matter what new technologies you install in your house, having the right homeowners insurance policy can help to ensure that you are protected in case of any peril.
