Whether you’ve already started to build the smart home of your dreams or you’re still learning about the possibilities, you’ll love what Nexia can do for your Plano, Texas, home. From streamlining your home’s HVAC system to automating lights and increasing security, learn how a Nexia smart home automation system can do it all.
Streamline Your Home’s HVAC System
As a Texas resident, you know all too well that utility costs often rise in the spring and summer. After all, during these seasons, your air conditioner runs more often to keep you cool and maintain good indoor air quality in your home.
If you want to give your energy bills and your HVAC system a break, replacing your manual thermostat with an American Standard thermostat is a smart choice. This device allows you to set an energy-efficient cooling schedule for your home, and it also connects to your home Wi-Fi network, enabling you to log in to adjust the settings remotely. Both of these features ensure that you won’t waste energy and help keep your utility costs low.
But that’s not all. An American Standard thermostat easily connects to the Nexia system, which makes controlling your home’s indoor temperature easier than ever. Check the temperature settings and schedule from almost anywhere, and adjust the controls with only a few quick taps.
Close and Lock Doors of Your Home
If your home is a hub of activity, with family and friends visiting, kids returning from school, childcare providers arriving, and workers doing various jobs, keeping track of everyone can get tricky. You’ll add an extra layer of complexity to the situation if you can’t always be home to greet everyone or if you’re concerned about distributing or losing track of keys.
Nexia can save the day once again, allowing you to easily manage smart locks and garage doors. Once you’ve installed and connected these systems, you can log in to see whether your home’s doors remain locked and secured.
Need to give a contractor or a babysitter access to your home? Use Nexia to program a code that a person you trust can use to open your home’s smart locks. Want to see if the contractor you were expecting ever showed up? Set up automatic texts through Nexia so that you’ll know when each code gets used.
Whether you can never seem to remember to turn the lights off when you leave for the day or you always seem to forget to leave a light on when you return home late, automated lighting is a critical part of any smart home. Automating your lighting system enables you to add a much-needed layer of safety and convenience to your home.
Connect one of the supported smart lighting systems to Nexia, and you can schedule lights to turn on or off automatically or adjust them from afar. If you’ve also installed smart locks or smart garage doors, you can even coordinate these features for added security. Use Nexia to set lights to turn on when you unlock the front door or open the garage door, and you’ll receive a warm welcome each time you return home.
Even if you trust your neighbors and you love where you live, you may find it necessary to add a few high-tech security components to your home. Thanks to modern technology, you no longer need to call a security company to place sensors around your home. Instead, you can set up a network of Wi-Fi–enabled cameras in problem spots both indoors and outdoors.
Connect your surveillance tools to Nexia, and you can keep an eye on your home no matter where you are. Since other smart security tools are also accessible within the Nexia app, you can make any necessary adjustments right away. With this effective combination of surveillance, security, and automation features in one convenient place, you’ll have your home running like clockwork in no time.
