Why Having A Smart Home Makes You Safer

Smart homes used to be a thing relegated to the distant future along with personal android robots and flying cars.

But they’re real, and they’re getting more sophisticated every year. They keep you connected, and they also help keep you and your family safe. Here’s how.

Smart Security

Smart homes exemplify security. Having a smart home means that you have access to more safety features than a home that is not high tech. For example, smart homes have smart locks that can be programmed and accessed remotely by you and you alone. Smart homes also have other safety features, such as cameras around the house itself and at the doorbell. You can see who is ringing your smart doorbell even when you are not home. A smart home wards off unwanted visitors while keeping you aware of the goings-on in the neighborhood. Not only can a smart home keep you safer, but it can also strengthen security in your neighborhood.

MONITOR YOUR HOME FROM ANYWHEREA smart security system allows you to view your home from any device anywhere. Real time alerts of emergencies are sent directly to you. There’s no 3rd party emergency answering service to go through. The authorities are automatically notified and help is on the way.

Helps Your Health


A smart house can help keep you physically well. For example, you can set your smart home to a temperature that is best for your family. Smart house technology can even detect a sudden or intense drop in temperature and alert you. Furthermore, smart technology can assist you in calling for help if something should happen. For example, if you are prone to falling, you can have your smart house wired so that it can respond to you calling for help. Even simple falls are dangerous and could incapacitate you to the point of being unable to reach your phone.

Staying Informed

Having a smart house means making regular updates on what’s going on locally and around the world. Keeping your house up to date and connected to the internet makes it easy to get instant access to information, which is perfect for you and your family in this busy world. And by having a home that is equipped with the latest technology, you can be sure that your home is the optimum environment for modern day-to-day life.

Having a smart home is an intelligent decision. It keeps your home up to date with the latest technology, which means you’re more likely to be able to keep up with the latest trends in crime. In turn, you and your family will be safer.

*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.
