Energy Efficiency

From smart thermostats that intuitively control the temperature of your home to lights that are controlled by your smartphone, find out all the ways smart technology can make your home safer and more energy efficient.

Nest Thermostat. Control your home’s climate no matter where you are from your smartphone, laptop or tablet — or not. Because this smart device has an intuitive design that modifies the temp when you leave your home, and knows how to adjust to keep you comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. The best part? The Nest Thermostat saves on energy. And that means you save money.

Smart Lights. With fully automated lighting systems, you can remotely control all the lights in your home — and it doesn’t have to take a ton of modifications or expensive bulbs to do so. Monitor your energy consumption using a connected smartphone app, and watch your energy bills drop.

Smart outlets. An internet-enabled electrical outlet, plug and power strips are great ways to shave some money off your electric bills. You can turn lamps and other plugged-in devices on and off remotely. You can also set timers so the outlet adapts to your usage habits — which monitors your power consumption and in turn saves energy (and money).
