Enhance Your Comfort and Safety This Winter With ESC Smart Technology

smart home products

Between the recent time change and stay at home orders, many of us are retreating indoors for the holidays. This is the perfect time to snuggle up by the fire with a good book or hot cocoa. With Executive Security Consultants Smart Home Technology, we will help enhance your comfort and safety throughout the winter.

Practicing proper fire and heating safety is especially important this time of the year. As temperatures start to lower, we begin to fire up our furnaces, fireplaces, and space heaters. Start by checking to see if your smoke and CO2 detectors are working properly. 

In the event of a fire or carbon monoxide leak, your smoke detectors alert everyone immediately. This includes our UL Approved central station, anyone you’ve named as an emergency contact, and the local authorities.  Our highly trained technicians can set up rules that shut down your smart thermostat to prevent fumes from spreading, and turn on your smart lights to help you make a fast exit. This is just one example of several rules we can assist you in adding to your system.

It is not uncommon for homeowners to come across busted pipes during the winter months. This can quickly cause a flood in the basement of your home. If this goes undetected for a long period of time it can become expensive to fix the damages. We recommend having a flood sensor installed in your home to detect when water has reached past a dangerous point.

If your smart security system includes a doorbell camera and smart lock, you can view and secure your deliveries in seconds from anywhere. This comes in handy for those of us expecting packages before the holidays. If you are away from home or unable to answer your door, you can communicate directly with the driver about where to leave your package. You can even have the driver enter your home by unlocking the door using your smart lock, while viewing the exchange through your video camera remotely.

Our remote app can alert you any time a door or window is accidentally left open. You can also set your smart thermostat to dial back automatically and help reduce energy costs when this occurs.

Our smart technology knows what’s happening in your home, and uses that knowledge to save energy when you don’t need to use it. We can assist you in creating customized rules, alerts and schedules for your system. This will help save energy when you’re not home, while still making things comfortable when you are.

  • Smart lights: Smart lighting allows you to switch the lights on and off remotely at any time. Set up automated rules for holiday lights to start and stop at specific times, instead of using energy all day and all night.
  • Smart thermostat: We open our front doors a lot at this time of year. Avoid heating excessively with the auto-setback feature. This feature will automatically set back the thermostat when a door or window is open for too long.
  • Geo-Services: Geo-Services uses your smartphone’s location on a digital map to understand where you are, and which direction you’re headed. It uses the rules you have set up in advance to prepare for arriving or departing your home.

If you would like to enhance your safety and comfort this winter, please contact Executive Security Consultants for a free consultation or visit us at www.execsecurityconsult.com to customize a system at a price that is right for you. As a locally owned business, there is nothing more important to us than the safely of those in our community.
