Smart technology has become so integrated into our lives that, many times, we barely notice its presence. From smartphones to smart assistants, we’re connected in ways that truly make our lives simpler to live. The vision of a fully connected smart home was never limited to the inside of our homes – it always extended to our home’s exterior as well.
From smart front doors (you read that right), to smart home security, smart lawn care, and even smart grills, there is something for everyone to upgrade their outdoor living space. In this article, we will explore a number of these smart products, and more.
How Smart Home Technology Enhances Your Home’s Exterior
While some argue that smart home tech is a luxury, here at Smarter Home Automation, we believe it is imperative in the modern age. It’s not just about having cool gadgets to play around with or looking more awesome than your neighbor – both of those things are perks – it’s about managing your whole home from one place, saving time and energy in the long run, and overall, simplifying parts of our life that don’t need to be complicated. Some peace of mind can be an additional benefit!
Think, for instance, how long it takes you – or your kid – or to a lawn service – to mow the lawn every weekend. With a smart lawn mower, that’s time back in your life, time to spend with your family, making memories (which is most important), and even saving money! A smart sprinkler system can save you hundreds on your water bill every year. A smart security system means you can monitor your home, knowing it is safe when you are at home and away, just by looking at the app on your smartphone.
Dozens of more smart product categories with more features and benefits can highly elevate your home experience and your life. But, for now, let’s start with 10 awesome outdoor smart products that will transform your exterior living space.
Awesome Outdoor Smart Products
Ever wished your front door were smarter? Someone did. The Masonite M-Pwr Smart Doors are powered, fully integrated smart doors made of premium, weather-resistant fiberglass, and are partnered with Ring and Yale. They even connect to your home’s power supply and have backup power in case your home’s power goes out. The LED welcome light lights up the front door, and they come with a Ring video doorbell and a Yale smart lock built in. Using the Masonite M-Pwr app, you can check to see the door’s status – if it’s open or closed, and there’s a Door State Sensor for this – as well as customize settings and control the lights.
Wondering if the door comes in a complementary color to your home’s exterior? Masonite has a large variety of style options to choose from, including colors and glass styles. You will be able to get the smart door at The Home Depot or Homebuilders, but for now, you can sign up on the Masonite website to be alerted about the M-Pwr smart door availability.
But what if you don’t want to replace your front door, but still want security?
