Technology has gone a long way toward making life at home more convenient. This fact is most evident when you look at smart home technology. You can control so many features of the home from your phone. This post will cover some of the smart home apps your property needs.
When many people think of smart home apps, they immediately go to the apps that cover the entire home. We want to look at apps with a narrower focus for this post. That means you won’t see apps like Amazon Alexa or Google Home on this list.
Our first pick is an app for smart lighting. With the Philips Hue app, you can control various lighting products from your phone. In addition to control, the app allows you to do more with your lights. Beyond turning lights on and off individually, you can put different lights in groups. You can also brighten and dim lights or change the color of some lights. See the download links below.
The U-tec app is to support the Ultraloq line of smart locks. These are some of the best smart locks on the market.
They offer features like fingerprint unlocking and wireless unlocking from your smartphone. You can even program them to unlock the door automatically when you arrive home. Another nice feature is that you can share temporary unlocking credentials with guests. See the download links below.
This app is to control ecobee smart thermostats. They can help you maintain a more comfortable home while also saving energy. You can control and monitor your home climate change system from anywhere using this app.
It can also automate thermostat functions based on occupancy and other factors. You can also place wireless temperature sensors in different rooms to monitor and manage comfort in those areas. Beyond thermostats, this app can also work with a range of security sensors from ecobee. See the download links below.
The Ivideon app is a complete solution for monitoring home security cameras. The company makes a range of cameras that are easy to set up and connect with the app. Once you have them set up, keeping an eye on what is going on at home from your phone is easy. You can view the live feed, store video in the cloud, or watch recorded clips. The app can send push notifications for camera activity or work with cameras that offer two-way audio. See the download links below.
