Smart Home Control & Energy Savings

November 6, 2019

The weather is getting colder and rolling the clocks back this week means it's getting dark out around 4:30PM... Some people coming home from work this week will arrive after the sun has already set.


Great, now your home will be dark AND cold when you walk in after a long day at the office. With smart home technology, you can actually set your system to turn up the lights and crank up the heat when you are on your way home. 





With the power of the Mobile App and the Qolsys IQ Panel 2+, you can control your home from anywhere - right on your smartphone. Lighting, heat, a front door lock, garage door and your security system. Taking control of your home does come in handy, but did you know that you can actually SAVE MONEY on your energy bill?

Unlike programmable thermostats, smart thermostats are easy to use and come with more ways to save energy than simple scheduling. You can save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs annually, while also keeping your family more comfortable. But with "automation", you can utilize heat sensors to regulate the temperature.  


The system will then react to activity in real time in order to save energy or make things comfortable automatically, according to your preferences. 

A whole-home platform like integrates the home's thermostat into an intelligent ecosystem with other devices connected to your security system. You can control your thermostat through the system's smartphone app, as well as via voice control or with a smart watch. 

Smart lighting is quite possibly the easiest smart home technology to own. With the Qolsys IQ Lightbulb, you can turn any lamp or lighting fixture into a remote controlled light!


There are a few other ways to get smart lighting. Smart switches are installed in your wall in place of your old light switch. They're much harder to install, but look great and allow you to use ordinary light bulbs with your smart lighting setup. 

The Qolsys IQ Socket is connected device that you plug into a wall socket, and plug a lamp or other lighting device into. Smart plugs are as easy as smart bulbs to install, can be fully automated as part of a smart home solution, and work with most plug-in electrical appliances, as well as lighting, giving you another way to save energy. 

You can have your lights turn on automatically when you're on your way home, for example, or when you disarm your smart home security system or unlock your front door's smart lock. You can also integrate them into automation 'scenes', where you control multiple devices with the touch of a single button on your smartphone.
