Want to learn more about smarter home protection? We’re here to help.

What is Smart Home Technology?

First things first, what does it mean to have a connected home? It’s quite simple!

Smart home protection connects devices and sensors installed around your house. They can notify you of problems before they happen by monitoring things like temperature, humidity, and air quality.

And the best part? They're great for emergency situations, too. These devices communicate through your smartphone or tablet.  Get alerts for water leaks, fire, intruders and unexpected movement in your home. No matter where you happen to be, you’ll always know when the unexpected occurs.

How does smart home technology work?

To get your home connected, you’ll need a few essentials:

  • Devices, appliances, alarms and sensors that connect and communicate
  • Internet service for your home
  • Internet-connected phone or tablet

After placing your devices where you want them and powering them up, you'll want to get them connected. Some devices may connect using your phone line, others connect through Wi-Fi. This may mean downloading an app to your phone or tablet to manage the device.

Consider investing in a secure Wi-Fi home network if you plan on using smart home devices.
