Get the Most Out of Summer With Smart Control
Make Your Home More Fun, Comfortable and Secure
It’s finally summertime! The weather is beautiful, the kids are home from school, and your summer vacation is just around the corner. This time is all about relaxing with a beer by the pool or a movie marathon with the family. So what better time to take advantage of a smart home control system? Find out how the right solution can simplify the day-to-day living in your River Oaks, Texas home so you can focus on basking in the sun.
Get the Most of Your Outdoor Spaces
Smart home control simplifies all the technology in your outdoor spaces. Want to listen to some music? Use your smartphone to pick out the song you want to play on the speakers installed throughout your patio. If a new guest arrives while you’re out back, receive a notification on your phone and let them in remotely. The celebration doesn’t have to end as soon as it gets dark. Schedule your landscape lights to go on at 7 p.m. to keep the darkness from spoiling the party.
Let Your Home Counteract the Heat
In Texas, the weather can go from pleasant to unbearable in a matter of seconds. As much fun as it can be to take in the sun, your home needs to be a good escape from the summer heat. With smart control of your thermostat, you’re always one step ahead. Have your thermostat lower the temperature automatically during the hottest times of the day. You can also get some help from your motorized shades. Photo sensors direct your shades to close when sunlight hits your windows directly to help cool down your home.
Keep an Eye on Your Kids
Summer can be a stressful time for parents stuck at work while the kids stay home alone or with a babysitter. Get peace of mind with a smart home system that keeps you informed throughout the day.
Receive a notification when your babysitter arrives and when she leaves through the use of personalized access codes. You can also check in on what your kids are watching in their rooms. If they’re watching something they shouldn’t, you can change the channel remotely or even turn off the television. For older kids, get a notification when they leave the house. Then use your system to lock doors or set the alarm if they forgot to do so.
Protect Your Home While You’re Away
It's not summer without a proper family vacation, even if it's just to spend a couple of days away from home. While you focus on building unforgettable memories, your smart control system focuses on keeping your home protected and you informed.
A "Vacation" setting simulates activity in the house, so it doesn't look unattended. Your system sends you video notifications if anyone tries to enter your home. And if you have a moment of downtime, you can always pull up your phone and look in on live surveillance footage to make sure everything is fine.
Forget about your troubles and get ready to enjoy the summer months! Relative Home Systems can install a smart home control solution that takes care of all the heavy lifting.
