How does owning a smart home benefit you? Let us count the ways.

Save Money On Your Energy Bills

Smart thermostats allow you to monitor your heating and cooling. You can use that data to make adjustments to lower energy usage, which can save you money. Being able to turn off the thermostat and lights remotely can also save you money on your bill because you never have to worry about leaving them on.


Many of the devices we include will add to your security. A video doorbell allows you to see who is at the door before you open. At smart door lock means you never have worry that you forgot to lock the door. You can arm and disarm your security system remotely by adding monitoring services through Duncan Security to integrate it with Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home and Siri Voice Shortcuts to turn it on and off using voice commands.


Apart from security, a smart home keeps you safe in other ways. Because you have full control of your lighting, heating and cooling, light switches and other electrical devices you will be able to check to see if anything is left on that could lead to fire hazards.
