Smarter Living

You don't need to be a millionaire to have a smart home. Many devices can be bought for under $100 and your collection of smart devices can begin making your life easier with each new purchase.

Of course the classic starter is a smart speaker, like Amazon Echo or Google Home. It’s the built in assistances in these devices that will help verbally connect you to your other smart devices. Smart lightbulbs and wall switches allow you to customize your lighting – from bright light to wake you up to flashing colors for a party. Some smart wall switches even allow you to have multiple room “presets.” For home safety, smart batteries in smoke detectors can alert you when they need recharging and smart doorbells enable you to see who is at the door.

Cheers to a smarter home!
