3 Ways to Be a Smart(er) Homeowner

Smart home, smart homeowner -- here's how you can create a safe and comfortable place to live.

Buying your first, or finding a new house is a huge and exciting step toward creating a home. There’s a lot to prepare – and we don’t mean furniture.

One thing that’s becoming the norm is connecting your home, which can give you peace of mind, whether you’re hanging out in the kitchen or away on vacation.

Here are three ways to make it happen:

Stay Secure
3 Ways to Be a Smart(er) Homeowner
When you move to a new location, it’s a good idea to have a security system to keep an eye on what’s happening in and around your home. Whether that be when your child walks in the door, or making sure the dog isn’t jumping on your new couch – you can stay aware. Our new Smart Home Security System, launching on Indiegogo, allows you to monitor both inside and outside through the Honeywell Lyric app. It’s simple to set up and ready for self-monitoring right out of the box. Plus, it works with Amazon Alexa meaning you can play music and adjust your thermostat or turn off lights using your voice. 

Don’t Neglect Small Tasks

Owning your own home means you’re in charge of maintenance. No more calling the landlord for a fix if the dishwasher leaks, pipes freeze or you forget to turn off the sink. Take care of small maintenance issues before they become bigger, more costly problems. Smart devices like the LyricWi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector can alert you to water leaks early and warn you if your home’s temperature or humidity goes past a certain point.


Save with a Thermostat
Don’t Neglect Small Tasks
Homeownership can be expensive, so saving money where you can to help pay off that mortgage is always a good idea. Installing a Wi-Fi thermostat helps control your home comfort and save on energy costs. With the LyricT5 Wi-Fi Thermostat, you can keep the temperature exactly where you want it with geofencing to adjust temperature when you leave for work or as you return to the home. It also lets you set up a seven-day schedule or vacation mode to save even more on energy costs.
