    Are you looking to make your life easier or more interesting? A smart home allows you to control appliances, thermostats, lights, and other devices using your smartphone, tablet, and more. Here are five smart home systems that can potentially save you time and money.

    1. Smart Thermostat
      A smart thermostat allows you to schedule your desired temperature settings. Some smart thermostats can learn your heating and cooling preferences and automatically adjust accordingly. The best smart thermostats have diagnostic features that can detect problems with your ducting or HVAC system.

    2. Video Doorbell
      A video doorbell is a smart security device that allows you to see, talk to, and record anyone who comes to your door – from surprise visitors to delivery drivers. You’ll also receive notifications when anyone comes to your property, even if they don’t ring the doorbell. The purpose: giving you peace of mind when you’re both at home and away.

    3. Smart Speaker
      A smart speaker can be controlled with your voice. With an integrated virtual assistant, you can get answers to your questions, perform automated tasks, play music, and control other compatible smart devices in your home.

    4. Smart Door Lock
      A smart door lock allows you to leave your house keys behind, locking and unlocking doors with a simple voice command or tap of the finger. Smart door locks even permit remote access – so you can let a guest in while you’re away from home.

    5. Smart Lights
      Smart lights allow you to control the lights in your home remotely. Motion detector smart lights ensure that flipping a light switch is a thing of the past. Almost all smart lights use LED bulbs, which are highly efficient and use much less energy than traditional incandescent lights.
