With smart home technology growing in popularity in recent years, it’s worthwhile to ask yourself, “Should I add smart home technology into my home, too?” There are many advantages to utilizing smart technology in your new home, from increased security, enhanced energy efficiency, saving on costs, and improving your overall quality of life. This year, find your new construction home from Rockhaven and enjoy the advantages of a safe and secure home!
We partner with KMT Systems to maximize your home security, including 24-hour security monitoring with indoor and outdoor security cameras. Studies have shown that surveillance cameras deter crime and can make your house 300% safer than those without security cameras. In addition, the most common time for break-ins to occur is between 10:00 am-3:00 pm, when the family is typically at work or school. This means that indoor and outdoor surveillance is more reliable than the typical alarm system that is set at night.
More options you can implement into your new home include a front door digital lock and video doorbell. These features alert you to what’s happening at home from your smartphone or tablet! Get notified in real-time when someone is at your front door, see whether packages were dropped off, and control who has access to your home. Gone are the days of hiding keys under your doormat or planter; just send a digital code to loved ones! For days when you’re rushing out of the house and can’t remember if you locked the front door, simply lock it from your phone and experience instant peace of mind.
With a video doorbell from KMT Systems, you can have two-way conversations with visitors at your door and capture video evidence if needed.
Smart home technology can make your home more energy-efficient and save you money. Our remote temperature control lets you manage your home temperature straight from your phone. Smart thermostats even pick up on your temperature habits and daily schedule to maximize energy efficiency, leading to a lower energy bill and decreased harm to the environment.
Have you ever arrived at work and then realized you forgot to turn the lights off? This won’t be a problem anymore in your Rockhaven home! In addition to having complete light switch control from your phone or tablet, you can also program your lights to turn off when motion is detected or when certain doors are opened or closed. When it comes to saving on energy, you can set a light schedule to turn on at specific times. This can benefit your daily life in more ways than you may think. Use your light switch control to help the family get ready in the morning and prevent potential stumbles in the dark trying to find the light switch. For kids, set the lights to turn off at their bedtime to keep their schedule consistent. These are just a few of the ways you can use this feature to your advantage!
Good news: your smart home technology can pair with your Amazon Alexa™! This makes it easier to play your favorite tunes, dim the lights, turn off devices, set alarms, and more. Another family-friendly feature that Rockhaven Homes’ smart home technology includes is a pet-friendly motion sensor! Now you won’t need to worry about your furry friends accidentally setting off a false alarm. When you meet with our smart home consultant, ask about the best location for your pet sensor.
