It doesn’t seem so long ago that smart homes were more of a fantasy than an actual possibility. In today’s world, home automation is a very real thing, and there are a number of associated benefits, including better control of your energy consumption. We can help you to implement cutting-edge technology so you can automate your Northbrook, Illinois, home for increased safety, comfort, and maximum savings potential.

Automate Your Security

Worried about your home while you’re away? You don’t have to be with an automated security system. There are plenty of options when it comes to getting a smart security system, from motion sensors and cameras to alarms and door and window sensors, all easily controlled through a single app. You’ll feel better knowing you have the ability to monitor your home even when you are away.

Make Your Lighting More Intelligent

You might think that light bulbs are just light bulbs, but now they’re even more than that. Smart lighting is a whole new world, with bulbs that can turn on automatically when someone rings the doorbell or follow a schedule to turn on and off at specific times. You could even have your lights connected to a motion sensor so that they will turn on when you open a closet door and turn off when you’ve left the room.

Take Control of HVAC with a Smart Thermostat

One of the biggest culprits of outdated technology and energy waste is your AC unit, which can consume a lot of energy if not maintained or used correctly. With scorching summer temperatures, a programmable or WiFi thermostat can give you big savings. Smart thermostats like the Côr™ WiFi thermostat, allow you to adjust the temperature even when you are away from home. The ability to regulate the temperature according to your schedule will improve efficiency and drastically reduce energy consumption.
