Back to School Basics For Your Smart Home

Serving Families Throughout Dallas

It’s time to head back to school! And with that comes big changes to your family’s schedule. With smart home technology, you can keep an eye on your children and ensure they’re always safe and comfortable at home (even if you’re at work).

Set up user codes

Take your smart lock one step further with user codes. They don’t just open the doors, they integrate into your smart home security system to trigger an alert. This means, you’ll know exactly when your kids walk through your door after school — no need to remind them to text or call you (and then subsequentially get mad when they don’t).

Program your smart thermostat

It’s not on a kids mind to keep the energy bill down. So if you’re not home, they’ll oftentimes overlook closing doors and windows while your AC is running.

There’s no need to worry about this if you make sure you set up a new schedule for when your kids are home after school — and you can even restrict temperature changes as well!

Save Energy With Nest

Your thermostat controls half of your energy bill — that's a lot of energy — and Nest helps you save a majority of it (unlike other smart thermostats). But that’s not all — with a NEST smart home device, you can control your home’s lighting system, security, and HVAC system as well!
