A Smart Home, Room by Room

Each room in your house has a different purpose and function and the same goes for the smart home tech you might put in those rooms. They each have a purpose and function and though you can use the same motion sensor in many rooms, how that sensor functions within your smart home system could be very different.

Let's look at different rooms and the benefits of what you can do with a smart home in each room within the home.

The truth is, incorporating smart home tech into your house can be a challenging - even daunting- task. It's easy to get intimidated by the setup process; so many brands, various protocols, random products, and the thought of having to use several different apps to control your smart home.

Z-Wave certified products have been meticulously and intricately designed by top tech brands with these concerns in mind to provide the most convenient and stress-free smart home system on the market. The magic of smart home products with Z-Wave lies in the fact that every product is connected through a mesh network, allowing different devices, regardless of brand, to connect and communicate through one platform. Signals seamlessly travel through walls, floors, and ceilings and even route themselves around obstacles to provide a robust, thorough home coverage system. Here are some ways you can use any of Z-Wave's 3,300+ products throughout your home.

Living Area

Couch potato doesn’t have to be so negative – who wants to get up to turn lights on or off when they are cozy on the couch? Smart switches allow you to adjust the lights directly from your phone, or even via voice control if you so desire. Smart Doorbells with video allow you to see who is at the door without leaving those cushions. If you are advanced with your DIY skills, you can even automate your curtains, blinds, and TV.

The Kitchen

The kitchen, the food hub of the house. Family members are in and out of the kitchen all day and night, and the kitchen lights are left on with no one in the room more than any other spot in the home. By installing smart motion sensors and smart light switches in the kitchen, you can actually set them up to communicate with each other – motion is detected, lights turn on. You can even decide if there is no motion for a minute or two, to have the lights automatically shut off. In addition, Have the sink and other appliances programmed to prioritize saving energy and have sensors set to find any leaks before anything dangerous can happen.

The Entryway

Smart locks and smart doorbells are all the rage right now, and with good reason. Smart locks come with a minimum of 30 individual codes that you can assign to family, friends, maintenance workers, dog walkers, etc. You can receive notifications when each code is used, letting you know who is in and out of the house. When a smart lock is combined with a smart camera doorbell, you can clearly see who is arriving, leaving, and when packages arrive.

What this means for you in addition to a more reliable system is that you can control all your Z-Wave products from just one app, making the process completely hassle-free and far more efficient.
