What is a Smart Home System?

A smart home means your home has a smart home system that connects with appliances and electronics to automate specific tasks and is typically remotely controlled. You can use a smart home system to program your lights, set and monitor your home security system and cameras, or control appliances like your refrigerator or air conditioning and heating.

Smart homes can improve energy efficiency because they save you precious time and money while also conserving energy!

What are the benefits of a smart home?

Many people are looking into smart homes ideas, how smart homes work, or specific task automation for benefits like these:

  • Smart homes allow you to have greater control of your energy use, all while automating things like adjusting temperature, turning on and off lights, opening and closing window shades, and adjusting irrigation based on the weather.
  • Smart homes provide insights into energy use that can help you become more energy efficient and mindful of ecological factors.
  • Smart homes can pinpoint areas where you’re using more energy than you need to, allowing you to cut back in those areas and save money.

What are some smart home ideas?

If you’re looking around your house wondering what regular devices you have now that can be turned into a smart device, it’s better to ask “What can’t be turned into a smart device?” If it can be plugged in, chances are there’s a company out there making a smart version of it. To get you started, here’s a short list of smart home ideas:

  • Keep your home safe with smart locks. Replace your current front-door lock with a smart lock to lock and unlock your door remotely, check to make sure you locked the door after you’ve already left, and keep a record of who has come and gone.
  • Monitor your home with smart security alerts. A multitude of smart home devices can alert you to safety or security issues remotely. Get alerts no matter where you are for leaks, for leaving the garage door open, for smoke, for when someone rings your doorbell, or for if you left something plugged in that really should have been turned off before you left the house.
  • Manage your home temperature and save energy with a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat can learn your habits and automatically adjust the temperature based on your unique schedule. It also lets you manually and remotely adjust temperatures through an app
  • Delegate tasks through a smart assistant. A voice-controlled assistant like Amazon Echo allows you to use voice commands to do things such as turn on music, search the Web and control your household smart devices.
  • Control your home lighting with smart light bulbs. Smart lights allow you to control the lighting in every room of your house from your mobile device. Or configure your lights to turn on and off at set times, and never worry again if someone forgot to turn off the lights before you leave for the day.

Are smart home devices energy efficient?

Smart home devices are not always energy efficient themselves, but most can be utilized in ways that help you conserve energy. When you have smart home appliances, lights, or a smart thermostat, you control when and how these will turn on and function. Therefore, you have more control over your energy usage and are more likely to change your energy consumption habits.

Constellation offers our very own smart home automation and security system, Constellation Connect. Through the Connect Hub, you can control your thermostat, lights, smart plugs, and much more. It’s all managed through the Connect App on your mobile device from wherever you are. You can save money not only with a Constellation electricity rate, but also by managing your energy consumption with Constellation Connect.
