A smart home is a home that makes your life as a homeowner easier. Often seen as the home of the future, the smart home is already available to you and could really make your life easier.
How can you make your home smarter?
By adding some cool and efficient products that can alert you when something goes wrong and more importantly provide you with solutions to fix issues. What makes these products “smart” is the fact that they can be controlled from anywhere in the world with the use of a mobile app. So you can be in Bali and check on your house in Ottawa.

Using a mobile app, the smart thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your home, cottage or chalet remotely. For example, you can set it up to be at the perfect temperature just before you arrive for the weekend. A great way to save on energy costs while you are away.

Water Leak Sensor
Advises you quickly via a mobile app of any leaks that could do significant damage. In order to work, leak sensors must be placed in strategic places where water is circulating, like under the sink, near a water heater, a dishwasher or a washing machine.
Smart Light Switch
A good safety feature that enables you to control the lights while you are away. For example, you can turn on the lights when it gets dark at night and turn them off in the morning after sunrise.
