It can also help homeowners reduce their energy and resource usage as well as bring down utility and maintenance costs. Some of the technologies that reduce the stress both on the environment and on your bank account include:
· Smart thermostats – Space heating and cooling is responsible for up to 25per cent of total US residential energy consumption. By using smart thermostats, homeowners are able to reduce their energy consumption by automating their heating and cooling systems wherein they are only activated when there’s somebody in the house.
· Smart lights – Like smart thermostats, smart lighting systems can be linked to occupancy sensors so they automatically turn on when somebody enters a room and turned off when there’s nobody in the room.
· Smart fridges – Smart refrigerators automatically regulate their temperature and track down your food stock and expiration dates. They are also more environmentally friendly as they do not make use of CFCs and HFCs or insulating foams that contribute to global warming.
· Motion detectors and occupation sensors – These sensors can be used to link kitchen and cleaning appliances as well as security, water, and entertainment systems to monitor and reduce waste throughout the entire house.
