Hot Vacation, Cool Home
While out on the beach, enjoying a drink, and relaxing, the last thing anyone wants is their home overheating or freezing. Our client, Ryan, set a temperature schedule, knowing it would do what he asked (and especially what he may have forgotten to ask!).
With a proactive system that worked for him, he didn’t have to worry sbout constantly adjusting it. It reaches out to him if the temperature gets too low, or too hot; which is great for when his animals are at home. It gives him the peace of mind and reduces worrying about freezing pipes, an “out of whack” energy bill or overheating pets.

A Dream Walk-In
Ever dreamed of having the perfect walk-in closet? Imagine never having to turn a light switch on again. When one of our customers was in the finishing stages of a home renovation, she was about to hire an electrician to complete an expensive and invasive lighting system to recognize when she walked into her closet. The client was able to prevent a costly upgrade including opening up the drywall of her space by installing a motion sensor and smart bulb. This new hands-free lighting setup was less expensive and invasive to her home. We were happy to help her realize her walk-in closet vision.

A Watchful Eye
On weekends, Shannon does custom design as a hobby; many of his supplies and tools are ordered online. In the past, whenever an expensive item was ordered, two things had happened; 1) The item was no longer on the doorstep when returning home and it now belonged to “Joe somebody”, 2) It had been delivered to the post office which had already closed.
With the introduction of video servicing and door locks that can be accessed remotely, he can now verify who is delivering his product, unlock and watch his purchase be placed inside, then securely lock and arm his home again. Having this capability of verifying, dropping, and locking has saved him from potential theft and time lost in travelling across town to a post office.
