April 30, 2019 (Mobile, AL) – Smart home technology is everywhere, and brings exciting opportunities for homeowners. But, it can also be intimidating to know where to start. That’s why home improvement expert and host of “Today’s Homeowner” TV and Radio, Danny Lipford, launched a national media event today to help homeowners navigate the world of smart technology.
Lipford hosted a national satellite media event today, live from a residence in Mobile, AL, where he shared tips and advice with 20+ million viewers. Throughout the morning, Lipford connected with 28 media outlets across the country, sharing advantages of upgrading a home with convenience technology.
Home lighting has made huge strides in the smart home industry. Lipford recommended this as an easy and inexpensive place to start when incorporating technology into the home. He introduced viewers to the latest smart switch from GE, the C by GE. The switch lets homeowners control not just smart bulbs, but ordinary ones as well. This smart switch works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing for out-of-home and voice control all from a single smart device app.
The C by GE smart switch allows for extended capabilities in activity and control. Homeowners can set up motion and ambient light sensing, lighting schedules and can control lighting options remotely. With the C by GE, your home can become both convenient and energy efficient.
The bathroom is another key area that can benefit from convenience technology. Lipford shared NuTone’s smart Humidity Sensing Fan which offers automation for exhausting hot, moist air outside of the home. The hands-free fan helps eliminate excess humidity, and with it, the potential for mold growth. Added benefits include:
• A sound rating at less than 0.3 sones (the quietest rating attainable)
• An energy efficient motor
• Easy installation process
“Having an automated humidity sensing fan is lifesaver for homeowners,” says Lipford. “So many people forget to use their bath vent fans during and after showers, which leaves their homes at risk for mold and mildew. With smart technology, homeowners can literally program the fan sensor once, and never think about it again. The fan does all of the hard work to maintain healthy air quality for everyone.”
Lipford suggested two additional DIY-friendly and smart convenience products for viewers – a front door lock and garage door opener. Both products involve an easy DIY installation and offer easy-to-use applications.
Adding a smart deadbolt not only offers convenience; it delivers an added layer of security to any home. With functions such as remote locking and unlocking, assignment of individual entry codes, and tampering alert notifications, a smart lock offers convenience and peace of mind.
With a smart garage door opener, homeowners won’t have to stress anymore wondering if they forgot to close the garage door when leaving for work each morning, according to Lipford. Similar to the lock, this convenience product offers several benefits:
• Ability to open/close your garage door with your smartphone
• Receive status alerts via the smartphone app
• Remotely check the status of the garage door
• Set a timer to automatically open or close the door
To close out the media event, Lipford explained how incorporating a few smart devices into any home can add tremendous convenience, but also contribute to a more secure and energy-efficient home.
