Home automation: make your home smart

Smart Home is a growing trend for simple reasons. It will help you save time, money, energy and also protect what matters the most to you: your family and your home.

People are running busy lives and should not have to worry about whether they armed their security system, locked their doors, closed the garage, shut down their main water valve or lowered the heat, for example.

What makes a smart home?

Smart home is all about security, automation and having all the devices connected to each other so they can be controlled and remotely accessed by only 1 smartphone app. Connectivity is essential to make your smart home effective, as this will allow you to run customized automation scenes with the touch of 1 button or through a voice command.

By hitting the scene button Home from your app, you’ll be able to disarm your alarm system, unlock your doors, turn on the lights, turn the heat up and open the main water valve. One of the new and most popular features is the integrated smart home video doorbell, which allows you to see who is at your door, talk through the doorbell, disarm your system and unlock your door and all of that from the same smartphone app!

Having a smart home doesn’t have to break the bank

Today, when combined with home security, smart home and home automation technologies have now become very affordable and simple to use. For instance, residential homeowners subscribing to a Fluent Home alarm monitoring agreement can receive up to $1,500 in free security and automation equipment installed by a professional technician.

Residential homeowners who are currently paying for a security system with alarm monitoring have the possibility of having their security system upgraded at no charge to enable the integration of the system and its home automation devices to make their home into a smart home.

How does it work?

Automation devices integrate with a state-of-the-art touch screen security panel and can be controlled by 1 user-friendly app on your phone. Security can trigger automation rules or scenes that you can easily customize on the smartphone app, thus creating a superior customer experience while protecting your family. All professionally installed security and automation equipment is guaranteed as long as you subscribe to the monthly monitoring service fee.

No need to pay for landline telephony anymore

Many homeowners have to pay for a landline because their security system is connected to it. The new Fluent smart home security system uses the cellular network to communicate with the central station which is more reliable and enables the system to be controlled with the smartphone app.

The fees you will be saving from disconnecting your telephone line in combination with the additional discount for security, fire and water protection on your home insurance and the energy saving (heating and lighting) will help pay for your smart home system monitoring monthly fee.

The Fluent smartphone app will allow you to control all of these home features:

  • Security system;
  • Theft, fire, CO, flood, water leak and temperature alerts;
  • Main water valve;
  • Lights;
  • Thermostats;
  • Locks;
  • Garage doors;
  • Video doorbells;
  • Internal and external video surveillance;
  • GPS car tracking;
  • Music (coming soon).

Ensuring your home’s safety

In conclusion, home automation combined with a smart security system is an interesting solution to keep your home safe while inoccupied (e.g.  you are away at work, or for extended periods when you are vacationing).

The main water valve shutting off automatically when water lead is detected is a good example of that. Smart surveillance features also guarantee the safety of children and elderly people, that can be monitored remotely via smartphone apps or computers. Data are super encrypted, ensuring that your private life stays private. You can easily get a new smart home system or convert your existing system to a smart home system. Monthly fees and activation fee will vary according to how many features you would like to start with.
