Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you could just control everything from one spot? Instead of having to go to work, appointments, school, or your children’s events, you could do it all from a single location, providing ease of use and a more efficient way to spend your time. While there’s probably never going to be a product that solves this problem, amazingly enough, there is a system that does this for your home. Meet the Nexia Home Intelligence system, which makes your home almost completely automated. If you’ve ever considered turning your New Orleans, Louisiana, home into the house of the future, here’s what you need to know about Nexia Home Intelligence.
As the core of the home automation system, Nexia Home Intelligence works with several products from numerous manufacturers. Rather than having to select from an exclusive list that doesn’t provide flexibility, you can choose from products from your favorite companies. Whether it’s lighting, sprinklers, or a thermostat, you can link them seamlessly with Nexia Home Intelligence.
Total Security and Peace of Mind
Even if you live in a quiet neighborhood, burglaries happen anywhere at any time of day, but you don’t have to become a victim. With Nexia, you can configure a safety net that keeps your family and your property safe. The system is 100 percent compatible with a Schlage keypad, which allows access to family and trusted individuals. With this keypad, you can program 19 distinct four-figure codes for family members, as well as recurring codes for repairmen, housekeepers, or neighbors.
If you have access to Wi-Fi or a hardwired internet connection, you can also secure the house when you aren’t home. When you’ve run out of the house in a hurry without locking the door or closing the garage door, you can use the handy Nexia app to close them from wherever you are. There’s no need to stress, call a neighbor, or take an unnecessary trip to get the job done. Just get on your smartphone or computer.
Check on the Kids
Because your kids have an access code, the Nexia system can alert you via text when they get home, thanks to their unique key. In addition, interior cameras can send you a video clip to show you where they are, and what they’re doing. If you have trouble with your kids not doing their homework, the system will even shut off the television when it’s time to get homework done, saving you the headache when you get home from work.
Set the Perfect Temperature
One costly expense in home ownership is your heating and cooling bill. When temperatures change rapidly, you’re often left holding the bill if your air conditioner or furnace continues to run. When coupled with a smart thermostat, Nexia can set the temperature to your liking, as well as shut the air off when you aren’t home. This lightens the load on your HVAC system, reducing the chance for repairs or maintenance.
Another great feature is that you can set the temperature when you leave work or when the kids return home from school, offering that cool or cozy feeling you desire as soon as you walk through the door.
Control Your Lighting
Lighting isn’t only an important part of making your home feel warm and comfortable, it’s also utilitarian, providing security and safety. For example, one problem faced by many homeowners occurs when they get home late. No lights are on, allowing intruders to hide in the dark or objects to impede your path. However, you don’t need to worry with Nexia. When linked with your car or smartphone, the system turns on exterior lights, opens the garage door, and even unlocks the door.
For the frequent traveler, Nexia is a lifesaver. When equipped, it turns interior and exterior lights off and on a program or even at random. With this feature, no one will ever know you’re away from home.
All the benefits of the Nexia Home Intelligence experience combine into a home that leaves you in total comfort and free of stress.
