Today’s Homeowner Radio Show | April 25, 2020

Smart home controlled by phone

Smart home devices — which you can control with a mobile device and app — not only make things convenient, they also make your home more efficient.

In this week’s episode of the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show, we’re talking about smart home devices that make us ask, “What will they think up next?”

Imagine having a coffee pot that brews a cup, each morning, 10 minutes before you wake up. Or an Alexa-enabled light-switch that turns lights on and off or dims them.

Best of all? It takes just a few minutes to install.  

Listen to learn more about that, along with answers to callers’ questions, Simple Solutions and Best New Products to make life around the house easier.

And we’ll cover it all on this week’s Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
