We are currently living in the technological age, where the internet has changed the way we live and work. We can now turn off our lights, lock our doors and even change the temperature on the thermostat all from the palm of our hands.

The new trend of smart homes has swept through the world recently. But being “smart” doesn’t always mean a connected device will save you energy. We have compiled a list of 3 smart technologies that will help improve the efficiency of your property and ensure that “smart” also means energy efficient.

1. Thermostats

Online thermostats allow homeowners to wirelessly monitor and control their home’s heating and cooling remotely from their phone. These programs can even change temperatures by what time of day it is.

The way this smart application improves the energy efficiency of your home is that it has internal systems that include geofencing. This is a perimeter that allows your smart system to know if you are home or not and adjust the temperature accordingly.

2. Connecting your lighting

By connecting your home’s lighting system to your phone you will  improve the energy performance of the lighting system. By having access to your home’s lights on your phone you are able to switch lights off when not at home, and likewise on as you are arriving back. Arriving at a lit house will help with safety measures and make you feel more comfortable as you enter your home.
