Creating A Connected Smart Home!
As you know, we are building a new home that should be ready within the next couple weeks. I am looking forward to it but there are some things that we really wanted to have in this house that we didn’t have in our last. We are trying to create a smart home or as close to one as we can.
We buy all our technology and appliances from Best Buy so it’s only natural that we would get all our smart home items from there also.
Here is a list a few things that we are incorporating into it:
Nest Learning Thermostat! Take control of your home’s heating and cooling without lifting a finger with this thermostat, which learns your habits and adjusts to automatically regulate your home’s temperature based on your schedule.
Philips – hue White LED Starter Kit LightBulbs! LED technology offers vibrant illumination while using only minimal energy. Plus, you can control the light using your smartphone or tablet by connecting to a variety of compatible apps.
Kwikset – Kevo Bluetooth Smart Lock! No more fumbling for your keys with the Kwikset Kevo electronic lock. It’s Bluetooth connectivity automatically syncs your mobile device to your lock with touch-to-open convenience, making your smartphone or tablet your new key.
Chamberlain – MyQ Garage Door Controller! Open and close your garage door, even when you aren’t at home. Plus, get alerts on your smartphone whenever someone opens or closes the garage door, or simply check to see whether you left it open.
RACHIO – Iro 16-Zone Wi-Fi-Enabled Sprinkler System Controller! The 16-zone controller enables you to control your outdoor sprinkler system from the palm of your hand, using a compatible Wi-Fi-enabled Apple® or Google cell phone or tablet. Auto scheduling offers an ideal plan for your yard.

VIZIO – E-Series 48″ – LED 1080p Smart HDTV! Watch fast-action sports, movies and TV shows in amazing clarity, or browse Facebook, stream Netflix, watch Hulu Plus and more, from the comfort of your living room.
OSRAM – LIGHTIFY LED GardenSpot Mini RGB Smart Outdoor Lighting! Illuminate your home’s entryway or backyard garden with this lighting kit, which features 9 colorful, dimmable landscape lights.
