Updating the smart control unit

When my hubby and I substituted our boiler and cooling system, we decided it would be a superb idea to also update our control unit.

I started researching smart control units and was amazed by the innovative features.

Today’s generation of control units includes the ability to access temperature control inside the home from virtually anywhere. The control unit will send reminders when it’s time to schedule service or change filters and notify you if there is a temperature change. As I was learning more and more about smart control unit technology, I came across complete house automation systems. Smart houses are gaining popularity as more and more appliances, electronics and systems include wireless technology. Through a house automation system, I can start up the washing machine, check on the sump pump, turn off lights and even adjust the humidifier. The house automation options included a house security system. While I was initially more interested in energy efficiency, convenience and cost savings, I realized that house security is actually the most important aspect of the package. With motion activated lights and cameras located around the exterior of the house, I consistently know what’s going on around the property. I can watch real time images on my ipad. By way of an app, I get notifications if there is an issue with glass breakage or anyone forcing their way inside. The alarm is seriously loud and continues to blare unless we punch in our security code. If there are any concerns, the monitoring supplier gives us a call. Without us providing our code, they notify the respected authorities, we are protected against house invasion, vandalism and fire, carbon monoxide and flooding.
