Smart Home

Nobody wants a dumb home when we make it so easy to make it smart.

Monitored Cameras

Monitored Camera Tips

  • Don’t attach cameras to gutters, the weight and the exposure to weather is bad for your gutter and your camera
  • Dont put cameras in dark spaces unless the product is equipped with night vision or infrared technology designed to work in low light conditions
  • Place cameras along a wall that offers the widest view of the room
  • For best results, place outdoor cameras in a location that offers some protection from weather
  • Outdoor cameras placed in areas not easily accessible can help prevent tempering

Did You Know?

61% of indoor cameras are set up in the living room, that’s more than in any other room in the house. And since 34% of burglars are coming in through the front door, it is no surprise that 68% of monitoring cameras are located there.

Video Doorbells

Video Doorbell Tips

  • Select a video doorbell with both cloud and local storage (usually a micro sd card) if one method fails, you have a backup
  • Pick your preference in a night vision feature; either an infrared (black and white footage) or a spotlight to allow for color night vision
  • Determine whether you need a hard-wired or a battery operated system. A battery system is easy to install, however, lots of activity combined with always on monitoring and video capture could use up batteries in a couple of weeks. Conversely, limited activations and select use of video capture will result in a battery life of a 2 months or more

Smart Thermostats

Smart Thermostat Tips

  • Use voice control, pair with an app such as Alexa, and ask to raise or lower temperature by room
  • Get weather updates, as well as the temperature outside
  • Use Away, Auto Away and IFTT (If then, then that programming) to save energy
  • Use the Geofencing feature which detects your smartphone and adjusts temperatures

Voice Assistance

Voice Assistance

  • Set alert to know when your Voice Assistant is listening; be sure to mute listening mode when you want privacy
  • Check the manufacturer's policy to understand who is allowed to listen to audio redordings
