Dream of Winning the HGTV Smart Home?
The Smart Home of Your Dreams
All over the country people are dreaming of winning the HGTV Smart Home sweepstakes. From its energy-efficient technology to its innovative safety features, this home is one many would gladly give up their current home to win. At a total value of about one million dollars, this dream home seems to most just that: a dream. But what if you could turn your own home into a smart home without breaking the bank? With a few simple tips, we’ll show you how to turn that dream into a reality.
5 Tips for Creating Your Own Smart Home
1. Set Up a Video Surveillance System
Video surveillance is no longer just for banks and other high-security buildings. You can reduce your risk of a break in, and stay worry-free while away from home, simply by installing a CCTV system to your home. And if you do end up with a break in? Those cameras will record the burglars red-handed. Now that’s smart.
2. Consider Automated Lighting
Never worry again about lights being left on overnight or wasting money and electricity on lighting. Instead, let motion detectors do all the work for you. Motion detectors automatically determine when to dim or turn on and off the lights, which greatly increases your home’s efficiency.
3. Heat and Cool Efficiently
Chances are, you’re wasting money on air conditioning and heating systems in your home. Automated HVAC systems adjust your temperature settings to save energy and money while keeping your home at a comfortable temperature. You can even set up presets to adjust the temperature in the mornings, evenings, and during the workday. Being “green” has never been easier!
4. Update Your Security System
A reliable and up-to-date security system is perhaps the single most important step towards having a safe and secure home. Sleep soundly at night knowing that you put your trust in an experienced company that uses only the best systems to optimize the safety of your home. Make sure that when your security system is installed, it is also networked and set up correctly so that in the case of an emergency you can always rely on your security system to keep you and your loved ones safe.
5. Install an Intercom
Million-dollar New York City apartment owners aren’t the only ones who can benefit from in-home intercom systems. Modern intercom systems range from room-to-room communication to a way to enjoy music from one room to the next. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
