Welcome to the Connected Home

The Internet of Things isn't coming—it's already here. It's connecting your home in ways that could only be imagined just a few years ago. From a garden that knows when to water itself to a vacuum that cleans while you get ready for work, homes are smarter than ever before. Here are just a few of the cool things you can do in today's connected home:

  • Wake up in the morning to the ideal temperature, thanks to a smart thermostat that learns your habits and schedules itself based on the weather and your home’s heating and cooling performance.
  • Tap your smartphone to start the coffee maker so it's finishing up as you're ready to pour.
  • Check your home security systems from anywhere with internet access. 
  • Stop and start your clothes washer from a parking lot. Or make sure the dryer is running properly. If it does malfunction, connect to the manufacturer for repair instructions.
  • Preheat the oven from the grocery store so you can pop dinner in when you get home. 
  • Get a message letting you know when the dishwasher cycle has finished.
  • Stream music and video and even control the color and brightness of your lights directly from your smartphone.

It’s a connected world. And with these innovative smart devices, you can save time, money and energy with little effort of your own.
