How A Connected Home Solution Can Help You Reduce Your Energy Costs

May 4, 2023 | Connected Home

Paying high energy and water bills any time of the year is not something anyone looks forward to. If you could take control of your home’s energy and water usage, by reducing energy and water waste, while lowering your electricity and water bill, wouldn’t it be smart to do so? 

The good news is there are very reasonable solutions that can help make a difference. The interoperability of thermostats, lights, and water management devices linked to the right security system, can provide a whole new level of security along with smarter, more responsive energy-saving options.

Connected Home Solutions

Smart Home Solutions can integrate with the right Smart Security System, which then acts as a hub for integrating Smart Thermostats, Smart Lighting, and Water Management systems that can help you reduce waste and lower your utility bills, avoiding overpayment. Here’s how it works:

Connected Home Thermostats

A properly chosen Smart Thermostat allows you to remotely control your home’s temperature from your smartphone or tablet. With Smart Thermostats, you can customize cooling or heating schedules, monitor your energy usage, and adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere. Using the properly chosen Smart Security System as a hub allows you to control air conditioning or heating when you arm or disarm your system, ensuring that you’re not wasting energy cooling or over heating an empty house.

 Smart Lighting

Smart Lighting solutions allow you to control your home’s lighting remotely, from a phone or tablet. You can easily set schedules based on your daily routine. Smart Lighting allows you to easily create a “vacation mode” that simulates your daily routine while you’re away, giving the impression that someone is still at home. When you connect Smart Lighting to a properly chosen Smart Security system, it acts as a hub and can control your lights when you arm or disarm your system. This can be done when you are away or at home. Smart Lighting ensures that you’re not wasting energy when lighting is not necessary in a room, an area, or the whole house.

Water Management

Smart Water Management solutions allow you to remotely monitor and control your home’s water usage, reducing waste and lowering your no non   water bill. With the proper Smart Water Management system, you can easily program the system to automatically control your water supply when you’re away, preventing leaks and unnecessary water usage. Connecting your Smart Water Management system to a properly selected Smart Security System allows you to receive alerts of leaks or water-related issues detected in your home. 


By integrating Smart Home solutions with a Smart Security System, you can take control of your energy and water usage while reducing waste. Smart Thermostats, Smart Lighting, and Smart Water Management systems allow you to monitor and control your energy and water usage remotely, ensuring that you’re not wasting energy or overpaying for utilities, while providing a more safe atmosphere for you and your family.
