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.
