With that, it puts many homes at risk to break-in’s, system failures and other vulnerabilities. So how can we help you? Smart home product sales and installation to start!

Smart home Wi-Fi products, including security systems and cameras, learning thermostats, and water leak and CO/smoke detectors can give you more peace of mind when you must be away from your home. Here are some of the easy-to-install, affordable smart products that we can provide you to better protect yourself from home invasions or potential disasters due to water or fire:

Nest Protect Home Security System & Outdoor Cams
When it comes to home security, the best defense is a good offense. Thanks to smart security systems like the Nest Protect Home Security System, you can continuously monitor your home. This security system, combined with outdoor cameras, provides you a comprehensive live stream of your home on any smart device and will alarm and send notifications anytime it detects touch, motion or sound, as you have programmed it to. And, with built-in recording functionality, if something does happen, you’ll have it all on tape.

Honeywell Water Leak/Freeze Dectectors
Unoccupied homes and water leaks or frozen pipes are a recipe for disaster. Water disasters can cause a huge and costly amount of damage in a home. But, today, many of these disasters are preventable with the Wi-Fi smart water products that are available.

The Honeywell Leak and Freeze Detector will notify the homeowner to a potential water disaster via the Honeywell Home smart app. Getting remote notifications allows you to get immediate help.

Nest Smart LearningThermostats
Nest Learning Thermostats offers awesome away-from-home features. A smart app controls these thermostats to give you access to the HVAC while on vacation or at work…or any time they want it. At the app, you can set, change or program the thermostat from any smart device. An unexpected dip in temperature while away from home?…Not a worry when you can turn up the thermostat to keep the home warmer and protect against frozen pipes. Smart thermostats can even shut off the system in the event it needs to—Nest does it automatically should CO be detected via the Nest Protect.

Nest Protect CO/Smoke Detector
Nest Protect is the safest CO/Smoke detector available today! Nest Protect smoke and CO alarm looks for smoke, fast-burning fires, and carbon monoxide. It alarms and “speaks up” from all Nest Protects in your house when there’s a problem. It also sends an alert to your smartphone in case you’re not home. But, not just that, if gas is suspected, it tells the Nest Learning Thermostat to shut off the furnace immediately. They work together to provide the most protection possible.
