It’s time to bring your home into the future! There are so many apps, tech tools and gadgets to help you manage and maintain your home while saving you money along the way. Here are just a few things you can do to turn your home into a “smart home” on a budget…

Home Network

Centralize photos, music, movies, documents, surveillance footage and more using a tool like QNAP TS -x51. Consider this your own personal cloud that you can access from anywhere!

Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detector

Yep, this too! This is a 2-in-1 device that will alert your smartphone when the alarm goes off. From the alert, you can call 911 or silence the alarm if your cooking set it off 🙂

Smart Thermostat

It’s no secret that programming your thermostat to reflect different temperatures throughout the day and also while you and your family are out of the home can save you money. Try an even smarter tool called Nest. It tracks what temperature you like and when. It will also track when you are home and away and adjust accordingly. Taking that programmable thermostat a step further to save you even more money on energy bills.

Light Bulbs

Let’s change things up a little bit! LED’s are nothing new, but having LED lightbulbs throughout your home are the next big thing. They can change color, connect to apps, and consume less power. Control your lights with your smartphone and adjust the color too.
