Home Monitoring Systems

As we emerge from the pandemic and leave the house more often, it’s a good time to install home monitoring so that you can keep an eye on things when you’re not on the property.

Consider upgrading to a more robust security system, expanding into automated lighting and sound systems, or adding monitors for energy and water usage.

Home monitoring systems range in price and complexity and can be used to monitor energy and water usage throughout the home.

Also look at smart garage door controllers that integrate with your home hub, such as Apple HomeKit or Google Home, to secure and monitor your garage from your smartphone.

A word of caution as you expand your home’s tech capabilities. Remember that all devices are connected and therefore vulnerable to hackers. Follow expert advice and best practices as you build your smart home system to keep your home and your information safe.
