The calendar is marked, the tickets are booked, and you and the family are counting down the days until the upcoming vacation. As you are making your plans this season, now is the perfect time to prepare and protect your home with Smart Home Automation. Our team at Ranger Heating & Cooling highly recommend installing smart home automation devices for families who are on-the-go and like to be in the know this summer.
Having a fully automated home is no longer a futuristic fantasy. While we’re not close to living like The Jetsons, the smart homes of today can be controlled through a smartphone, tablet, or PC using the Nexia app. Operating on Z-Wave technology, Nexia is an all-in-one app that connects to various systems and devices in your home, such as security sensors, heating and air conditioning, lighting, thermostat and much more.
Here are a few of our favorite smart home automation products that we offer:
1. Trane XL824 Thermostat
The Trane XL824 Thermostat is both a thermostat and central hub for home management. The XL824 Thermostat allows you to remotely control and schedule your thermostat and over 200 Z-Wave enabled products. While traveling, you can schedule temperature alerts to automatically send via text and email, control the locks on doors, turn on and off lights, and other money-saving (not to mention stress-saving) functions. To determine if the XL824 Thermostat is compatible with your home’s heating and air conditioning system, schedule a consultation with our Tacoma team.
