How do you control your smart home?
Your smart home will be controlled on the software that you choose at the beginning of the process. We will help you decide, but the general rule of thumb is that Apple users will use Apple HomeKit and Android users will use Samsung SmartThings. All of the features within your home will be able to be controlled via one of these apps.
What is the estimated cost?
Unlike traditional wired solutions, our wireless solutions provide flexibility to our customer. We can customize whole home solutions starting from ~$10,000. Alternatively, if you do not require a whole home automation, and would just like certain rooms or features, we can find a solution that fits within your budget
Can my home be hacked?
No! All of the smart home devices are connected to your wi-fi. This means that all information is stored locally, with none of it leaving your home. Furthermore, with new technology such as Face ID and Touch ID, your smartphone is as safe as ever, prohibiting anyone to access your home from your smartphone.
What is the point of a smart home?
While a smart home is a place to entertain and look cool, it also has some other benefits which are less talked about. Your smart home is now a place fully personalized to you. This means that you have ultimate convenience, time saving and practicality in it's features. As everything can be customized to your liking, you can ensure certain things occur, such as turning off all the lights at a certain time everyday and opening the curtains, having your coffee heat up as your alarm goes off, and so much more. If you want to hear more benefits, give us a call, we love talking about them.
