How can a Smart Home benefit you?

Updated: May 19, 2020

With technology at our fingertips, no matter where we are or what we’re doing, we’ve become accustomed to and relished in its advantages. We can monitor our work and personal email, see the location of our family and send pictures to our friends in seconds. Our smartphones are powerful tools that run our lives. They make our lives easier and create an unprecedented level of convenience. With smart home technology, we can now use a smartphone to control our homes regardless of where we are in the world. Smart home technology provides the power to control every aspect of your household operations but also increases safety and efficiency.

How a Smart Home can benefit you.

RE Johnson can lead you through your smart home installation and transition. We believe in smart home technology because of the undeniable benefits and exceptional convenience. Transitioning to a smart home can provide you with:

Energy Efficiency

With smart home technology, you have the power to control the electrical systems and appliances throughout your entire home. Not only does this technology allow appliances to work with the least amount of energy necessary, but it also provides the convenience of being able to turn appliances and lights on and off while away from the home.


The energy efficiency provided by smart home technology also creates the most effective cost of living. According to a study produced by the US Environmental Protection Agency, users of smart home technology, from thermostat control alone, saved anywhere from 10 percent to 30 percent on their energy bill. And a long-term benefit of smart home installation is that with each addition, the resale value of your home increases.


Smart home technology allows you to control and monitor home entry. This provides a sense of ease when not remembering if you locked all of your doors before leaving for a trip. Other safety features are garage door monitoring, which can send alerts to the homeowner and allows them to close the garage door remotely. Smart doorbells allow the homeowner to view and monitor the front of the home before deciding to open. And smart lighting technology allows homeowners to remotely control and program lighting.


With the unlimited remote access that smart technology provides, accessibility, or lack thereof, is a thing of the past. Not only is this beneficial for the everyday homeowner, but this technology also allows elderly folks and disabled persons to remain independent in their homes for a longer period of time. Smart technology increases their overall quality of life. Voice commands allow for ease of basic, everyday tasks. And the need for extensive computer knowledge is lessened. This all provides a sense of independence, flexibility, and comfort.
