It doesn't matter if you're on the living room couch or on vacation, you can have full control of your home, including the lights, locks, and thermostats. A smart home system, like the one offered by Nexia, can bring homeowners both convenience and peace of mind. Consider the following benefits:
Remote Temperature Control
When you arrive home from a day at work in the summer, you want to enter a house that's refreshingly cool. Similarly, in the winter, you want to return to a house that's comfortable and heated. This is possible with a Nexia Wi-Fi thermostats, which you can control remotely from your smartphone. The feature is also handy if you forget to adjust the temperature before leaving home.
Of course, you don't have to adjust the temperature each time you enter or leave the house. You can simply create a schedule for this home automated system to follow. Schedule your lights to turn on when you're away, giving off the appearance that someone is home. Or schedule the heating and cooling system to enter low energy mode, saving you money on bills.
While the Wi-Fi thermostat feature offers comfort, other features offer security. You can receive text message updates that inform you of your home's current state. If the garage door is still open or a water pipe has started leaking in the basement, the smart home systems will send your smartphone a message. Then you can take action to solve the problem. Use the app to shut the garage door or turn off the water valve. If you have children at the house, the home automations can also let you know when they're home from school. User codes let you give family members and other trusted individuals access to your home. This feature is handy if a neighbor is dog-sitting while you're away on business.
Nexia keeps home automation convenient. Use the Nexia Bridge to centralize all your home's automated features. Then, you're free to set up an automated schedule. Set the lights to dim as you leave for work. Set the AC to come on as you return home. And set the television to turn off when it's time for your kids to do homework. You have complete control. Download the Nexia app to your smartphone, so you can make adjustments throughout the day.
