Smart ThermostatImagine your thermostat sensing when you leave for work in the morning, and it automatically turns on “eco” mode. Or, picture it showing your energy consumption patterns and how you can consume more efficiently.
It’s possible with a smart thermostat.
While you’re away from your home, your thermostat can regulate itself to use as little heating and cooling technology as possible. And at the end of the month, you can review during which times of day you spent the most to regulate your home’s temperature and in turn have a better knowledge of how your energy management system can save you more.
Another great benefit of a smart thermostat is that you can access it anywhere you go. If you want to cool your residence before returning home, you can set the temperature from a smartphone or tablet application.
Lighting Control SystemWith smart lighting control, you don’t have to worry about leaving lights on and spending unnecessary energy.
From the convenience of your handheld device or an in-wall keypad within your home, you can turn off every light with the press of a button.
When you’re home, you can adjust the amount of light each room receives through dimming options, and you also can create lighting “scenes” that illuminate specific areas – like a walkway to the kitchen when you wake up in the morning.
We also recommend you use LED bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs, so you save on energy consumption even while you have the lights on.
Motorized ShadesEnd the hassle of raising and lowering each blind in your home and instead have them motorized.
You can save time and energy with a motorized shading system, in which you can raise or lower your blinds with the single press of a button. Or, you can have them entirely automated.
At sunrise, your blinds automatically can lower so that light enters the room and heat stays out. Your shades will allow your home to stay cool so that you can simultaneously stay comfortable and conserve energy.
If any of these technologies sound appealing to you, we are experts at installing them to perfectly fit your Oahu, HI home’s energy management system needs.
