Home Automation And Energy Monitoring

Take Control With Z Wave Energy Monitoring

When researching energy monitoring solutions for your home, it’s easy to find different types of systems that are available. You can start with an energy monitoring plug or energy monitoring outlet to see the energy consumption that is being used by a specific device. We recommend using z wave energy monitoring devices within your home automation system to reduce the number of additional devices that are sitting on your homes wifi network.

Whats Using Watts?

Efficiency starts with education. With easy access to your home’s energy meter reading, you can track what’s using energy and when. Based on usage needs, we then create automated schedules to maximize your home’s efficiency, reduce your energy bill, and make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Upgrade Your Home With A Custom Residential
Energy Management System

What if your home could make you more comfortable, save you money, and help the environment all at the same time? It’s possible with a home energy management system. A good home energy management system can help make your smart home dynamic and efficient while optimizing your energy usage. If you have solar panels or some other type of power generation a home energy management system can also help optimize how your home uses that power.

A home energy management system is made up of two types of components; hardware and software. You may already have some of the hardware in place in your home such as climate control, automated lighting, motorized shades, and smart outlets. What really makes the difference in an energy management system is the ability to analyze the energy data. Energy management lets all your hardware and smart devices work together as efficiently as possible. From your home energy management hub you can monitor your devices, turn them on and off, and adjust your home automation. Set schedules yourself or let your system figure out what works best for you and your home.

At Smarter Homes of Austin, we’ve serviced the greater Austin Texas areas for more than 14 years and continue to provide the best home automation and audio video solutions and services. We can help you set up the best home energy management system for your home. The first step is letting us know what you need.

Learn Where Your Energy Costs Come From

Smart home automation systems installed with energy meters provide a real time reading of your home energy use. As you adjust lighting and air conditioning, the home owner can see how that affects the total number of watt the home consumes as it happens.

Shortcut home automation buttons can be added to the programming to send the home into an “energy saving scene” where it adjusts air conditioning to cool the home less frequently and dim lighting, as well as drop motorized shades to stop outside UV light from heating up the home.

We leave lights on and window coverings open at random and in turn our air condoning systems have to work harder to keep our home in a state of comfort. until now, these factors were a mystery in determining the value of our wasted energy use. Put a stop to energy waste with home energy monitoring paired with home control and automation.

CREATE YOUR SMART HOME BUDGET

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
